Andrea Tsang Jackson, of 3rd Story Workshop, is my guest today on the Modern Sewciety Podcast. I first noticed Andrea’s work on instagram and instantly fell in love with her unique style and patterns. She recently released patterns for her unique gemstone patterns that she has been selling for some time now at crafts shows. We chat about her background and how she started her business, 3rd Story Workshop, and what she is looking forward to in the future. We also talk about the ups and downs of releasing your own patterns, selling your own sewn items, and trying to figure out how to price goods for sale. Andrea is such an amazing creative and I know you are going to enjoy this chat as much as I did. click on the link to listen.
When I started sewing on the regular nine years ago I remember finding Elizabeth Hartman’s blog, Oh Fransson. She always had super colorful projects that were our of this world cool. She is still the same oh so cool pattern designer but has expanded to fabric design, books, craftsy class, and I can’t wait to see what else she has up her sleeve. Elizabeth knows how to make patterns with cool creatures and doesn’t shy away from color. We chatted about her journey, her patters, fabric lines, and so much more. She has always been so kind and helpful to me in my own sewing journey. I think you are going to love this chat as much as I did.
