Call for testers and bloggers (or Instagrammers)

1. Call for testers

In the few past years, I have been working with an amazing group of women: my pattern testers. I would like to expand my pool of testers a bit, so that all sizes keep being covered by enough testers.

So, would you like to become a StraightGrain pattern tester? This is what it involves:
– you become part of the permanent testers ‘pool’, and with each new pattern, you get invited to test
– you are part of the closed testers group on Facebook, where you share ideas, and support other testers
– at the end of each test round, you fill in the feedback form (in English or Dutch), and send a few pictures (on model) to me
– you don’t need to have a blog, and testing is not related to a blog tour. If you’d like to be part of a blog tour, please see call #2

Not sure if testing is your cup of tea? You’ll be a happy tester if you:
– you have girl between 0 and 13 years old whom you sew for
– you’re a sociable person, who is kind and supportive to the other testers, and likes interacting online
– you have a critical eye, either for language, sewing techniques, or both
– you have the time and energy to create a garment and provide detailed feedback within 10 days after receiving the pattern

Baby mama’s are currently largely missing in our group, so they are extra welcome to apply 😉

2. Call for bloggers/IG’ers

I’ll admit it: I sometimes get lost a bit in the seemingly infinite supply of beautiful sewing blogs and IG accounts. I constantly come across jaw-dropping blogs and accounts, but somehow when time comes to invite people for blog tours, I’m too overwhelmed to find them all back.

Combine that with my shyness and my sheepishness about approaching people I don’t really know, and you’ll understand why I need an actual call like this to get some inspiration for the next time I’m inviting participants for blog tours or other events.

So the form below is actually a kind of BUG ME! form. If you have a blog or IG account, and you’d like me to bug you with invitations for tours etcetera, please fill it out 🙂

Thank you so much! 🙂

Why you should Sew your own T-shirts

We are talking t shirts today. While these closet staples may not be the most exciting pattern in the library, they are arguably the most versatile and frequently worn thing you can make. For years I avoided sewing these pattern basics like the plague. Why sew something that cost less to purchase? And that doesn’t even factor […]

Simplicity 1463

When I was at Sewjourn in November my friend Kathryn sewed up a gorgeous version of Simplicity 1463.  Since I had some spare fabric with me, I quickly borrowed her pattern pieces and gave it a go as well! There really isn’t much to this pattern. Front piece, back piece, cuffs, neckband. That’s it. It… Continue reading Simplicity 1463
