Hi, guys! I just got this e-mail in my inbox saying I had been featured on Pattern Review. If you’ve never been to the site, it’s a great site with reviews on sewing patterns, machines, and so, so much more. I found my picture on the right hand side-bar. I’m the featured member of the day! I felt touched and also a little silly–I’ve only posted a few reviews. I have yet to enter any of their many contests or expand beyond a few pattern and book reviews. Time to up my game, I guess!
You may remember that I went to the Boston Pattern Review Day this past summer. It was so much fun and made me love the site even more. Since that day, I’ve made blog friends through Pattern Review (you’ll find a few of their blogs in the sidebar–Allspice Abounds and Thanks! I Made Them and Sew Can You), and read about a billion reviews on patterns before buying. Now that I have a smartphone, I’ve even looked up reviews while at the fabric store to make sure a certain pattern was really worth it. The founder, Deepika, is really nice, an amazing seamstress, and a great creator of not just a sewing resource, but a place that is also a community for many people.
It’s easy to join Pattern Review for free. If you are even considering sewing, I can’t recommend Pattern Review enough as a resource for you. No one is paying me to say this. It’s how I really feel. Thanks for letting me share my sewing excitement with you!
Congrats Lisa, how exciting!! 🙂 It was really wonderful to meet you over the summer, and it’s been fun following your blog ever since. Hopefully we will meet again someday (???)! Also, your haircut looks great!
Thanks, Carolyn. Likewise. I’m loving your blog and your approach to sewing. It was great to meet you, and I definitely hope to meet again–maybe at a future Pattern Review day. 🙂 Thanks for the haircut compliment. I really like it, too.
