Part of the plans we have for 2017 is to improve the processes and systems we have in place for producing our patterns. One of the tasks we have set ourselves is to increase the range of pattern testers we have in addition to the local ones in Stratford that help us out.
So if you’d like to be involved in helping us to make even better patterns please get in touch. We are not just looking for standard sized people but anyone who is interested in sewing – all shapes and sizes, skill levels and experience.
Let us know your email address and we will send you a Pattern Tester Info Form so we know all about you – what size you make, what your level of sewing is, whether you’ve pattern tested before, that kind of thing. You will receive a free copy, paper or PDF, of the final pattern as well as another pattern of your choice. We can also link back to your own website or blog when we promote the final pattern.
We have a very quick turnaround for the first pattern to be tested. With images and feedback to be returned to us by 22nd January. So that should give you just under three weeks to find the fabric, make up the pattern and send us your feedback. But it is a very quick pattern to put together!
Don’t worry if you can’t work around this particular time scale. Let us know if you’re interested in other patterns and we can let you know when we have the next one ready for testing.
I hope you can join the team and help us to make our patterns easier to make up and clearer to follow.
