What is PatternsDB?
PatternsDB is currently under development!
PatternsDB will be a place to store all your patterns and access them on any device, including your mobile, tablet, computer or laptop.
PatternsDB will never lock you into patterns from certain pattern companies but give you complete flexibility to store ALL of your patterns including:
- Patterns you create yourself
- Patterns from a book or magazine
- Patterns bought online or from a bricks-and-mortar store
At PatternsDB we want to support your sewing endeavours by providing an easy to use system to store and find patterns that you own or would like to own.
If you are at a sewing store and want to know how much fabric or which notions you need, then use PatternsDB to find out.
If you want to see if you already own a particular pattern or one with similar design lines, rather than rummaging through boxes of patterns you can quickly and easily look them up on PatternsDB.
PatternsDB is here so that you can concentrate on sewing something truly wonderful.
Who is the creator of PatternsDB?
I’m an avid sewer who first had lessons at school, and continued developing my skills with the assistance of my seamstress Grandmother. I slowly began to love the process, the challenges and the wonderful creative outlet that sewing provides.
I have sewn curtains, pillow covers, a graduation gown, a christening gown, a bridesmaid dress, pants, shirts, jackets, bags, and so on for myself as well as friends and family.
I have undertaken sewing classes and pattern drafting classes. But hands down the best thing I have ever done is join the Australian Sewing Guild. I have connected with other sewing enthusiasts, learnt a ton of new information, gained confidence in sharing what I have created and most importantly inspired me to keep sewing.
Professionally I have been a computer programmer since the mid 1990’s, working for various companies in the retail and education sectors. So with this professional experience and my love of sewing I created PatternsDB so I can do what I truly love every single day and help fellow sewers stay motivated, stay inspired and stay organised.
