I'm encouraged to see so many new pattern companies these days. Several bloggers have created very long lists. Have any of you tried them? If there was a "top 10" list, who do you think should be on it, and why? Are you willing to try a new company right away, or do you tend to wait for them to become popular? Any companies that are least known, but with good potential, and deserve some public exposure?

My faves, and the only ones I really like to use now are;

Jalie
Style Arc
La Mia Boutique magazine
original Kwik Sew (ie before the sell-out; after the sell-out, not so sure yet)

Not really "new" companies cept for Style Arc...but I just ignored that part of your question.

I heart Panzy, Pfaff Creative Performance, the sewing machine love of my life!
And Baby (Enlighten serger), Victor (BLCS), Rupert (Pfaff 2023-knits expert) Ash (B350SE-Artwork), Kee (B750QEE-Panzy's BFF), Georgie (B560-Kee's baby sister) and the Feather-Flock!

Most of all, I heart Woo (HimmyCat). Until we meet again, my beautiful little boy. I love you.

Not really new, but I like Cynthia Guffey and Peggy Sagers (silhouette patterns). They both are so helpful and generous with their advice. I like being able to email a question and getting a personal response.

Decades of Style. If you like vintage, they're great and they have excellent customer service.

Couple of years old now, though.

LOVE Jalie. I have about 20 of their patterns to my defense, I have sewn up most of them. I also really like Ottobre, but they are not really new either :)

Thanks for alerting me to the La Mia Boutique magazine. It looks very interesting, and more my type than Burda.

Marfy -- well drafted with interesting darting -- from Italy.

Otherwise I use Pattern Master Boutique to draft patterns to my measurements.

I also like Patrones magazine (Spain) and looking forward to getting a couple of Manequim issues from Brazil this month.

Not necessarily all that new, but I have several favorite independents:

* HotPatterns (stylish patterns drafted for a curvy figure)
* Colette Patterns (vintage-inspired patterns drafted for a curvy figure)

I love these two companies because I need to make fewer adjustments for fit for my figure.

For kids: Oliver + S...really cute kids' clothes with great instructions.
