Scroop Patterns is an Indie Pattern Month Sponsor!

As the designer for Scroop Patterns, I’m delighted to be a sponsor for Indie Pattern Month on the Monthly Stitch: If you’re not familiar with the Monthly Stitch, it’s like the Historical Sew Monthly, but for modern sewing (though they would probably happily let you submit historical items that fit the theme!). (Bonus excitement: The Monthly Stitch is also run by Wellington Sewing Bloggers.  NZers taking over the sewing world!) Indie Pattern Month is their annual celebration of the smaller Indie Patterns lines. There are four themed contests in Indie Pattern Month: Dresses, New To Me, Hack It! and Indie Royalty.  If you haven’t participated, you still have time to get in an entry to New To Me, or next week’s contest: Hack It! Contests give you a chance to win amazing prizes from the sponsors – including Scroop Patterns. Plus, there is going to be a pattern bundle sale, which includes a Scroop Pattern. And something more quite exciting coming quite soon… SaveSave
