I am so lucky to be a mentor in the Shwetty Betties Designer Group. Who are these “Shwetty Betties” you ask? Well, Shwetty Betties is a group of relatively new and aspiring pattern designers who have joined together to support each other in their design endeavors. You can find their sales and promotion group here: Bettie’s Basket Sales and Promotions.
The Betties have an Aspiring Designer’s (AD) Challenge four times a year and require all ADs to participate in at least two per year. I have seen so many marvelous designs presented in each AD Challenge to date. This month’s challenge is no exception!
The March 2015 AD Challenge, hosted by Pattern Revolution is going on right now. To celebrate the release of their patterns, each designer has offered a special introductory or sale price. Be sure to stop by Pattern Revolution to learn more about these fabulous up-and coming pattern designers and visit their shops to take advantage of some absolutely amazing sale prices!
