It’s been an amazing few weeks and it just seems to keep getting better! I was recently invited by the lovely Michelle and Chelsea from Pattern Observer to take part in an interview about my work, how I got started and my new Prairie collection for Dashwood Studio. Of course I jumped at the chance! I’ve followed Michelle’s Blog right from the early days and remember watching some of her first video tutorials on YouTube so it’s amazing to see how Pattern Observer has grown steadily over the years, supporting Designers like me.
Feeling like I wanted to give my business an extra push, I enrolled on one of their courses just over a year ago. It was known as Building Your Textile Design Business and was a brilliant course aimed at Surface Pattern Designers wanting to grow their businesses in the industry. I finished the course with a lot more confidence and focus about where I wanted to take my work and how I could go about that. I felt I had been given a survival toolkit for the Surface Pattern Design industry! So it was really lovely to be able to catch up with the team at Pattern Observer and talk about what I’ve been up to since I completed the course. I can’t recommend Pattern Observer enough and the courses they provide, so if you’re undecided about whether to take the plunge, I loved every minute of it!
