Full Time Pattern Designer

The fall always makes me want to start fresh.  I don’t know if it is the kids going back to school or the aisles full of fun office supplies in every store, but whatever it is, fall is the time where I reflect on how the year is going and what ways I want to change for the upcoming year.

This fall is especially exciting for me because for the first time since starting this business in September of 2014, I am going to be a FULL TIME PATTERN DESIGNER.  You guys it’s actually happening!!  

When I started SSD I knew that it was going to be a part part time gig for the first few years until Benny went off to kindergarten.  Well believe it or not in a blink of an eye my ‘baby’ is headed to kindergarten on Monday, which means momma is working full time around here starting Tuesday.  

What a dream that I get to do something I love while still having time to spend with these three.

I have accomplished so much in the 3 years I have been working.  I have released 11 patterns in both PDF and paper and 3 free patterns.  I have an online course helping pdf pattern designers transition from pdf to paper and made so many amazing friends through the process.  But all that is only the beginning, watch for some pretty exciting stuff over the next year.

Having the time to not only improve my pattern design knowledge but also going back to some earlier patterns and expanding the sizes and adjusting fit, has me pretty darn excited.  With more time available to me every week I will also be so much more present here, in the facebook group and on my newsletter.  I want to help you navigate my patterns as well as hack them into new and fun designs.  So expect to see a bunch more of me in the facebook group.

Thank you all for being with me through this journey and I look forward to getting to know all of you and sharing even more of my love of sewing.

Happy Sewing!
