Launched in October 2020, Ribblr is the ultimate destination for crafters to create, sell, meet, and get inspired.
In over 15 years of crafting and designing patterns, our co-founder Lir has faced many challenges: from not being able to keep track of her progress to time consuming designing tasks. After speaking to fellow crafters & designers, it became clear that while the crafting community kept growing, the industry hasn’t evolved in decades. It was time for a big change. Together with her co-founders, Saar and Avi, they decided to embark on a journey to revolutionize the crafting world, and use technology to empower crafters. And so, in 2019 Ribblr came to life.
We believe crafters deserve better. So, we set out a clear mission: make crafting accessible and empower crafters through innovation.
We are working hard toward three main goals:

Ribblr was born to empower designers. We save you time by taking care of things for you. This way, you can focus on what you love most – designing unique new patterns. Introducing Ribbuild, a streamlined pattern editor. Built by designers and for designers, the idea is simple: you add the instructions and Ribbuild does the rest. Write in your native language and using your preferred measuring units and Ribbuild will automatically convert measuring units and translate your patterns to other languages, starting with English US and UK. Ribbuild will scan your patterns to generate an abbreviations list and apply built-in tips and stitch video tutorials. Ribbuild's smart sizing feature will automatically color each individual size in your patterns and even let crafters select to view their size only. You can also design interactive charts directly in Ribbuild and crafters will be able to customize them by selecting different colors. How cool is that? Did you know? You can control your own fees and even remove them completely using $elFee. Find out more about what Ribblr has to offer for designers.
We believe that crafting should be accessible for everyone around the world and that’s why Ribblr is designed to be user friendly. We have invested and will continue to invest in developing many accessibility tools to help you use Ribblr. Ribblr is truly responsive and is available on any device, with free iOS and Android apps available. On your personal accessibility menu you will find dark mode, reduce motion, and left-hand mode. Ribblr ePattern, with its unified design, makes it easier for everyone to craft thanks to many accessibility tools such as smart sizing, language translation, font and pictures zoom, and more. And to help make patterns even more accessible, designers can add built-in photos, videos and even audio instructions to their patterns on Ribblr.
