Here at Pattern Revolution we strive to educate people about the new world of PDF patterns, to foster a growth of creativity inspired by needle and thread, and to engage in a community where limits are set only by the bounds of the imagination. All those pretty words to say that we want to see a new generation excited to SEW!
As I began exploring the world of PDF patterns a couple years ago, I quickly saw that while passion and creativity abounded, PDF standards were few and far between. What was normal for one designer's patterns was nowhere to be found in another's. Neither was right or wrong, it was just their process and way of delivering a final product. It is hard to put 'standards' on an art form, but a lack of standards can cause disappointment and confusion to designers and customers alike - which in turn causes people to step away from this medium.
When I first read the Mission Statement of Willow &Co. a huge smile spread over my face. This collaboration of eight individual designers has produced not only gorgeous patterns (and clothing), but a statement to the PDF world that standards are OK, that they don't limit creativity and productivity, and that they help today's sewist start and grow in their sewing journey.
Willow& Co Mission Statement: Our mission is to serve our customers with the ultimate children’s pattern shopping experience. By creating a product of excellent quality, our hope is that you enjoy working with the patterns and reach complete satisfaction with the final product. To assure quality, pattern standards were developed and followed. Our patterns were each thoroughly tested by outside testers, as well as in-house. All the patterns were designed to work together and can be easily mixed and matched. We hope you and your child(ren) will appreciate our modern, fresh and fashion-forward aesthetic.
