I would SOOOOOOOOOOOo love to take this on. However, I have alot on my plate right now. Might I suggest someone else to you though? Mary of is an amazing artist(by that I mean seamstress, and multi-talented). She already makes/sells her own patterns and they're the clearest and easiest to understand that Ive ever used! She gives clear, concise directions and uses photos to guide you every step of the way!


Okay - I'll throw my name in the ring. I would say that I am multi-talented. I am soon to be 53 years old and have had a needle of some sort in my hands since I was six. I can sew, knit, crochet, quilt, papercraft, etc., etc. Before having my last child (9 years ago), I was a computer graphic artist for an industrial advertising agency. I absolutely adore your fabrics and pattern designs. Visit www.cutestuffinside.blogspot to get an idea of what I can do.



I can sew, and I'm a hand quilter. I live in Toronto, Canada and would love to to work with you!


OMG! what a great opportunity!
working with Tanya Whelan..Ohhhhh..
i wish i'm near and have the ability..
maybe i should just keep on dreaming


I would LOVE to talk to you further about working with you!! It would be a DREAM come true to learn more about this kind of thing!


Hi Tanya,
It's probably too late to throw my hat in the ring, but I would love a chance to work with you. I am a contract graphic designer and brand manager for a large non-profit by trade. I have been in the business for about 15 years and that included copywriting for guidebooks, newsletters, speeches and writing for the web.

I am also a pretty skilled seamstress although I definitely won't claim to know it all. I currently have two blogs. One is where I post my creative pursuits, which includes hand drawing and painting: You will be able to see some of my artwork here though not all.

The other blog is geared towards crafting and designing for little boys. I have created a number of appliqué patterns for this site and have designed and written the instructions as well as show step by step tutorials on this particular craft. You may visit: to view the patterns and tutorials. Visit the shop to download a free PDF pattern. That will give you an idea of how I write and illustrate my simple patterns.

As a contract designer, my work load ebbs and flows. I just came through a very busy season (ending this spring) and things are calming down now. I would definitely be up for a challenge like this one. If you are interested, please let me know what it entails. When I make a commitment, I will definitely follow through.

Thank you for the opportunity,
Jen Scott

Sounds like you have quite a few wondeful options listed above. But I thought I'd give it a shot! I am a quilter, teacher, crafter, and artist. I managed a website at a quilt shop for several and helped write patterns for the shop's unique patterns. I have photo skills and can also edit them. I have experience with Adobe Photoshop, Publisher and other software. I do have a blog that I just started.

I have a critical eye when reading patterns and would like a chance to talk to you about this opportunity.

Just try to think of it from the standpoint of the burglar. If you have two houses on the same street and one has a dog that bark.
