A look at how one pattern maker in Chicago thinks about her profession.
We were lucky enough to have Jen sit on our panel about Running a Crafts-Based Business! Here she is on NPR’s Marketplace talking about her career as a clothing pattern maker; a job that is rapidly being replaced by computers and outsourced to other countries. Jen’s company, Grainline Studios, offers an alternative product, a hand-designed, locally produced sewing pattern, and simultaneously provides inspiration and instruction to those who are interested in making their own clothing. We pretty much think she’s the bee’s knees.
Go, Jen, Go!
