One of the things I really wanted to do when I retired was to test patterns for designers. I first heard of "stunt sewing" over at Pam Kitty Morning. Pam has been testing Alex Anderson's patterns for many years. This sounded right up my alley! Not only do I love to sew, but I also pride myself in accuracy and detail. Who better to be a "stunt sewer"? But how would I break into this industry, I asked myself. I don't know any well known designers, let alone anyone else who designs.
My dream came true thanks to blogging! I met Stephanie of Loft Creations and as we became closer, she asked me if I'd like to be one of her Supreme Pattern Testers! Oh, yes! I nearly cried! How excited I was! In fact, I'm still excited! Every time Stephanie sends me one of her new patterns, my heart skips a beat. As long as I follow Stephanie's pattern directions to a "T", I can be as creative as I want with my fabric choices. If I find any errors or corrections that need to be made, I make a notation on the directions. This way, when the patterns go to print, they are correct! The best part is I love Stephanie's designs. She creates a quilt or a bag that's fun, easy, has a little whimsy, and often tells a story! I've had so much fun with this "job" and hope to be doing it for a long time to come!
Today Stephanie is starting her Sunday with the Supremes series. She is interviewing all of her Supremes and today is my interview. Hop on over and see what I had to say!
