About the Panel Discussion
Over the last 5 years we've not only seen a resurgence in sewing, but several technological advancements in our industry. Indie Pattern Community is more active than ever. They've come up with some innovative designs, instructions and patterns for us to take advantage of. Digital media enables us to print, cut and sew the same day! And if Best Patterns is any indication, we LOVE our indie patterns. So this year we've invited 3 talented Indie Pattern Designers to chat with us in a fun interactive panel discussion. We will have plenty of time for Q&A later and we'll even be able to shop their designs. Lets meet our Panelists.
