Ahhhh. I’m in the point of pattern writing that feels great – second only to finally finishing the pattern itself: the place where I’m 90% done. The place where the worst is behind and good things are ahead – where I can be excited about what is to come. It’s a good place.
Pattern designers seem to be popping up everywhere! I was surprised at how many new pattern lines were out at Quilt Market and it was exciting to see what everyone was creating! I’ve found designers to be so friendly and helpful and overall just a fun group of people to hang around. I’ve decided to start a page here on this blog for Indpendent Sewing Pattern designers to share their blogs. Mostly so I can keep track of them, but also for any of you who are interested. Requirements for listing:
1. Have at least 3 non-quilt patterns published on paper. Quilt designers are welcome as long as they have 3 non-quilt patterns as well. I’m not trying to exclude pdf pattern designers, but designing pdf patterns is a lot different than designing for paper and I’d like to create a list for paper publishers.
2. You must have a blog. I’m not advertising for websites here (which might violate my tos), just making a list of blogs.
I’ve gotten the list started with some of the biggies as well as some people that I met recently. Feel free to list your friends or your mom as long as they fit the requirements. Leave a comment and I’ll work my way through and add them as I have time. Thanks!
