Thank you Origami Sweater Testers!

February 20, 2018 2 Comments

It amazes me every time - the amount of people applying to test my patterns, willing to spend some of their free time, energy and skills to help me perfect a pattern in the making. It’s so humbling! As a small business, I wouldn’t be able to survive without the help of these amazing people.

Early October I pitched a pattern idea to Jen, the editor of One Thimble Digital Sewing Magazine. And to my amazement, the Origami Sweater was chosen to be part of One Thimble’s 18 issue, which released February 16th! And the Origami Sweater made the cover, yay! Next to the Origami Sweater, the magazine’s 18th issue is packed with amazing patterns by fellow indie pattern designers, tutorials and articles. I’m so honored to be among such talent.

This testing round, I was again so fortunate to work with another amazing group of women from over the whole world. Words cannot express the gratitude I feel towards these lovely ladies - I’m so grateful for your time, attention, creativity, friendship and most of all patience! Because let’s not forget, testing finished early November, so they had to hold off on showing their makes for 3 whole long agonizing months! Here’s a small selection - there were so many amazing photo’s to choose from - of their amazing makes. Please check their instagrams & blogs, show them some love & get ready to be inspired!
