Slow Blog Tour stop #2! Michelle Fifis of the highly magnificent blog Pattern Observer asked me to participate in a webinar interview. She had some students from her e-classes listening in and messaging questions to us at the end. I also ask Michelle about how she started Pattern Observer, and about her design work. She is a freelance surface pattern designer who works directly for companies, rather than going the licensing route. Both of these ways of doing business are still a bit mysterious to me as I’m most familiar with the quilting/lifestyle fabric world. So if you’re interested in breaking in to pattern design work, I think you’ll find the discussion valuable.
A huge thank you to Michelle!
