UPDATE: THANK YOU FOR ALL THE WONDERFUL INTEREST IN TESTING MY PATTERNS. I NOW HAVE A FABULOUS TEAM OF PEPPERBERRY & CO. PATTERN TESTERS AND AM THEREFORE NOT LOOKING FOR ANY FURTHER EXPRESSIONS OF INTEREST.

Yep, it's true- Pepperberry & Co. Sewing Patterns are about to graduate from my Lab and into the real world! Before they can be launched at the Stitches & Craft Show, however, they need to pass one last test- the Crafty Community Challenge. 


What I'm looking for is sewers of all levels who would like to come on board as Official Pepperberry & Co. Sewing Pattern Testers. What you'll receive for participating is:

- A free sneak preview of a Pepperberry & Co. Sewing Pattern (the range includes a Passport Cover, Notebook Cover, Cushion Cover and Textile Card!);
- A free copy of the final ePattern of the project you have completed; and
- Your choice of one of any of the other Pepperberry & Co. Sewing Patterns, as a little thank you. 


As a Pepperberry Pattern Tester, you'll need to be able to do the following over the next 3 days:

- Get the materials you'll need for your pattern (they're small projects, so you probably have most of what you'll need in your scrap pile!)
- Sew the project, following each of the instructions in the pattern (each project takes no more than an hour); and
- Complete a brief survey about the pattern.


Pepperberry Pattern Testers can be anyone, from anywhere in the world, who has any level of sewing experience- including absolute beginners! The only thing you need is access to a sewing machine and the time to complete the project over the next 3 days.  

To apply, please leave a comment or email me (littlemisspepperberry AT gmail DOT com) with responses to the following:

And perhaps a little note about why you are interested in becoming a Pepperberry Pattern Tester!


I can't wait to hear from you!

I love sewing and all aspects of craft. I've been sewing and such since I was young and it's always been an important part of my life and my relationship with my mother and grandmother.
I've been writing my blog for a year and really enjoy sharing my experiences with other crafty types. I'd love the opportunity to test patterns and help out other craftsters.

I used to sew with my mother but stopped when she did. I've recently started to get back into sewing, which is awkward after not having done it for years. I love to learn different methods and expand my sewing repertoire. It would be cool to try out your patterns as I've only ever used my mum's or commercial ones.

Intermediate - self taught

I'm a sewing, fabric and pattern lover. Taught myself at a very young age and just kept going. Veered away from craft type projects for awhile but have rediscovered how much fun they can be


I blog (sharonsews.com) to share my passion and meet others who share this love.

Would enjoy helping you test your patterns!

Beginner- Did sewing at school which was over 15 years ago, mum was a machinist and I watched her sew a lot, she has since moved back to NZ and left me her sewing machine... I have started a few small projects of my own but would love to be a Pepperberry pattern tester to help advance my skills

I love sewing, and would love to test one of your lovely patterns. I think they have a very professional polished look and I would love to achieve the same look.

Intermediate sewer

My Mum and school taught me to sew and I have sewn off an on through out my life. Papercrafting has taken over but in this last year I have dragged my machine out for a couple of small projects and totally love it. Would love to try out your patterns....just might inspire me to do a little more sewing. :-)

I'd love to do this!!
I think I'm a pretty basic sewer but I'd love to try new patterns and expand on what little I do know. Most of my crafts are just straight stitching type stuff.

Thanks for the opportunity!

I think it would be really interesting to test drive a sewing pattern. I have to pull out my sewing machine this week to hem my curtains and finish a skirt anyways, so I'd love to give your patterns a try.
