Deepika Prakash of Pattern Review {Podcast Episode #112}

Continuing the discussion of garment sewing in the month of May, today’s podcast guest is Deepika Prakash. Deepika created Pattern Review, a garment sewing website and community with reviews, forums, contests, patterns for sale and more. (See the home page below…)


During our conversation, we talk about what motivated Deepika to create her website in 2001, why she feels that now is our time to sew, the technological changes since she started the website and what excites her about those changes and so much more. I hope you enjoy the episode.

Notes from the Show:
