Rates and Turnaround Times
I am currently taking on new tech editing clients for knitting. When you contact me, I will give you a rough estimate of how long your project will take, and we can establish the timeframe for the editing.
If you do not have a style sheet, I can help you set it up based upon your pattern writing style - this will help save time on edits in the future. The first time you work with me I offer a 25% discount so we can get to know each other!
Current turnaround is under 10 days.
Technical editing rates are $36 per hour, billed in 15 minute/quarter hour increments ($9 per increment). Minimum 15 minutes.
Rates for grading, illustrations, and graphic/layout work are $40 per hour, billed in 15 minute/quarter hour increments ($10 per increment). Minimum 15 minutes.
Pattern templates are charged a flat rate of $50 and are available in Word and InDesign formats.
Payment is preferred via PayPal, although other arrangements can be made.
