I came across this idea through Skyberries instagram and then I received Gnomeangel’s link pack email and Ange also mentioned is so I figure, I love to buy craft patterns so why not jump on the wagon? The idea is created by Lindsey Rhodes and is to show support to those pattern makers out there for the month of May, rather than just looking for the “free” all the time, the internet is full of “free”. If you’ve ever created a pattern you’ll know just how much work goes into it, everything from the original idea, to creating pattern pieces, writing up the technical specifications, troubleshooting, photography, design and more. It. Takes. Time. And talent, let’s not forget that.
So for each week of May, 5 weeks I’m going to purchase a pattern from a maker and share it here and on Instagram, using the hashtag #mayisformakers
My first purchase is going from Emma Jean Jansen and it’s her Whirligig quilt pattern, looks super fun.
