Readers, hold on to your patterns, a new series is coming up on the blog! I don’t know about you, but I am always super curious to know who is behind a brand that I love, above and beyond the marketing and social media posts! I want to learn more about the person who founded a brand of patterns I love and how they came to be.
So I came up with an idea for a series of interviews with indie sewing pattern designers, that will dive deeper into their personalities, what drives them and of course, what do they think about sustainability in the sewing community. I hope that a more personal connection with incredibly creative people in our community will also shine a spotlight on perhaps lesser know patterns, but equally amazing, and you might want to try them too!
The format is very simple. I ask my interviewees 10 questions on themselves, their brand and of course, sustainability and post their answers on the blog. I will also offer up the upcoming list of designers (coming soon!) so you can also send me your questions. I will add the best ones to the Q&A.
As the ice-breaker, I interviewed Kim from Ann Normandy Design, as I was in the process of making the maxi dress from their collection for my Costa Rica trip (stay tuned for the reveal soon). It was really great speaking to Kim about life and lovely vintage linen and I hope you will enjoy our ‘chat’ too.
