Hurray! They are finally here! For all you gorgeous humans that have been waiting patiently, the wait is over!
I have taught so many wonderful clients over the past eight years, and during this time I was able to see how different clients learn, what the most common questions are, and what my clients found difficult when learning from sewing patterns. I saw that there was never enough instruction and often the pattern instructions would leave out steps and presume the reader had more knowledge.
As someone who is dyslexic, I totally understand how frustrating it is for my clients to struggle with learning. I witnessed as it affected my clients' self-esteem, but as I taught them step-by-step, their confidence would return. So I knew I had to create my own sewing patterns. I didn’t just want to make sewing patterns; I wanted to create an experience — an experience where my clients could feel excited about learning, where they could feel free to learn at their own pace, and where they could feel guided every step of the way. And so I use my glorious dyslexia as a guide.
I created sewing patterns that were colourful and vibrant, as this is something I’m passionate about. Colour plays an import role in how we feel while learning. They are easy to use, as everything you will need is right there in the pattern. For example, my projects that involve quilting have the quilting line on the pattern, so it is easier for you to sew. All projects that involve pockets or a ribbon have a ‘Place Here’ marking so that you don’t have to do any extra measuring. My goal is for you to learn different techniques in the easiest way. I want you to have as much fun as possible and not tire your brain out with too many tasks.
