Wanna Be A Pattern Tester?

update: Thank you SO MUCH for the overwhelming response to this post!  Wyatt can thank you too because he got to go to a movie with Joel so I could respond to all the emails :).  All the tester spots have been filled, and emails are on their way with details!

I finally buckled down this week and got my printed Ruby Lou Doll pattern finished.  Now I just need to decide where to get them printed.  Any suggestions?  I’ve even ordered the bags to put them in — which come in boxes of 1000!  Yikes, that’s a scary thought…

Although the instructions and pattern pieces are the same for the PDF pattern, the format is a bit different since there are illustrations in the printed pattern rather than photographs.  That’s where some of you might come in.  I’m looking for some pattern testers.  Although you will need basic sewing skills, I need both beginner and experienced (I won’t say expert, because most “experts”wouldn’t call themselves that) sewers.

If you are interested in being a pattern tester, email me.  Let me know your skill level, your blog address if you have one, and anything else you think I might want to know!

  2. sent you an email… =]

  3. I know where to get cards, postcards, and even books printed, but I have never gotten a pattern printed!
