My dear readers, I’m starting a mailing list for those of you who would be interested in testing patterns for us in the future.
There’s no commitment involved to sign up, it’s just a way for me to contact you. When there are new patterns that I need tested, I’ll send a note out to the list to find volunteers.
How testing works is this: When you volunteer for a pattern, I’ll send you a pattern before it’s released, along with complete illustrated instructions. They’re not in a cute booklet format, but they’re complete. You sew up the design in a certain time frame, and fill out some questionnaires about the experience and any problems you encountered, things you liked, or general thoughts.
Update: Wow, thank you to everyone who signed up! We have tons of people on the list now, so I’m going to close sign ups for now. I will post to the blog if/when I’m looking for more. Thank you all for your enthusiasm!
