Road Trip Pattern Club
Join us for a sewing adventure! The Road Trip Pattern Club is an exciting collaboration between 5 of the top sewing pattern designers in the industry. Every three weeks from late May through August club members will receive an exclusive brand new PDF sewing pattern delivered directly to your inbox. There are 5 travel inspired patterns that include bags, accessories and women’s clothing, ranging in skill from confident beginner to intermediate. The designs will be a mystery until they are revealed at each road trip “destination” every 3 weeks. We promise they will be worth the wait! The patterns will be exclusive to the club for the duration. Even if you join after the club begins, you will receive all patterns released to the club up until that point.

About the Pattern Designers
Our journey starts with Betz White (me!) in Maryland. You’ll love the new pattern I have planned and it’s perfect for a weekend get-away. I’m the first stop on the road trip so you won’t have to wait long to see it!
Next stop: Patty Young in Illinois. Patty of MODKID is a well established pattern and fabric designer known for her bold designs and colorful palette. Her design for the club is something that will take you from hotel to pool in style.
We’ll head north to Carla Hegeman Crim in Upstate New York. Carla, of the Scientific Seamstress, has a thriving sewing pattern business. Carla’s design for the club is something easy-breezy to get you through a long hot summer.
Next we’re bound for New York City for a visit with veteran pattern designer Liesl Gibson of Oliver + S, Liesl and Co., Lisette and Straight Stitch Society. Liesl knows it’s the little things that matter and her design will help you keep track of them.
Carolyn Friedlander in Florida is our final destination! Carolyn, a quilt and fabric designer, travels frequently to teach quilting and sewing classes. Her pattern design for the club is sure to help you sew on the go.
