Thank you Dia Sweater testers!!

November 26, 2018 1 Comment

It sounded like a great idea - releasing our first ever women's pattern, the Dia ladies sweater and updated Dia kids sweater pattern at the same time, before the Black Friday craziness. ūüėÖ This very challenging¬†deadline meant 2,5 months of hardcore pattern testing, with multiple pattern versions and a gazillion sample sweaters & tunics sewn up. Not only for me, but also for all my testers, the¬†most amazing tester panel I've ever worked with. Luckily they were up for the challenge and it's because of them that the release of both patterns turned into such a success!

This tester group was the biggest I've ever worked with - 70 testers were selected to join one of the 2 testing teams, but about 30 of them dared to join both kids & ladies testing! So most of them have been working with me for about 2 months. I can't even believe how many sweaters were sewn up, surveys were filled in, while battling all sorts of "life happening" situations. Words cannot express the gratitude I feel towards these lovely ladies - I’m so grateful for your time, keen eyes, creativity, friendship and perseverance!

So here’s a small selection of their amazing makes. Please check their social media & blogs and show them some much deserved love! Below you will also find a list of all the blog posts kindly written by some of the testers, with more in depth info about the testing experience and some honest opinions!
