Deepika Prakash
Founding Member

Deepika started in 2001 as a place for sewers to meet and discuss their sewing projects. Over the last 10+ years the site has evolved into a global community with 300,000+ members in over 20 countries.

Deepika taught herself to sew 10 years ago because she wanted to make curtains for her new home. 10 years and almost 150 garments later, she is still buying curtains!
She looks forward to going home to her toddler daughter who loves to model her latest creations.

Diane Severin
Blog editor, Social Media Manager

Diane Severin has had a love of fabrics since she learned to sew at 8 years old. She has been a museum teacher at the
American Textile History Museum, where she continued her fabric education, learning to spin and weave. She is particularly interested in the process of making cloth and the history of fabric and fashion.

A writer by trade, Diane has been the News Editor of PatternReview since 2009 and is busy producing much of the writing that comes from the PatternReview offices, including newsletters, news and announcements.

Noelle MacMahon
Public Relations, Customer Support

Noelle has been with PatternReview since 2009. She is the one who sends your patterns to you and keeps track of everything happening around the offices.

In her spare time, she teaches art classes and tries to keep up with her two teenage children. Noelle loves fabric and nice clothes, and has purchased many patterns and fabric with which to make clothing. Occasionally, she produces a garment- but not as often as she would like. In the meantime, inspiration abounds at PatternReview, so she lives vicariously through members' achievements.
