Introducing Pattern Patter Team!


The Pattern Patter Team, founded on June 7, 2011, is a team specifically for sellers of vintage and newer sewing patterns.

 Currently we have 226 members, and 6 leaders. As captain, I rely on my leaders to support the team and me by taking charge of their area of expertise. Let me introduce them!


Susan from AdelebeeAnn is our social media maven. She takes care of the team’s social media accounts by posting on all of them daily.


Next, Emily from EmSewCrazy is responsible for team events. She posts the sign up threads, organizes the participants’ information, and tallies the results!


Amy from ViennasGrace is our resident Fashionista. Her knowledge of fashion terminology as well as her ability to help with dating an item is indispensable! She also is a regular contributor on the team blog with her series Sewing and the Cinema as well as other subjects.


Cloe of CloesCloset helps to manage the team page keeping it current and fresh. She also helps with tags and titles, and SEO questions from members.


Our newest leader is Barbara of FloraDoraPresents. Barbara has taken over Member Management. She reviews applications to join the team, sends new members information, and will soon be reviewing current members to make sure they are complying with requirements.

Team Captain


 I write blog articles, manage the advertising for the team, write the newsletter every month, and do whatever else I can to make my team members successful.

2013 Fellowship Award Winner!
2014 Fellowship Award Winner! (x2)

Pattern Patter Team has been fortunate enough to receive three Fellowship awards, one in 2013, and two in 2014.  I have had a great experience in being part of the fellowship program.  I have learned so much about team management and about online communities. My favorite was the group that Kim led in 2014.  I have become more self-confident and organized!

The one thing I would like to share with other sellers leaders and captains is that you can’t do everything. You need a good support team. Search out possible leaders to help make your team the very best that it can be! People like to be asked to help.

Our team deals in old, fragile, paper. Not always an easy job!
