Hello Melissa! Can you tell us a bit about you and Fehr Trade?

I started Fehr Trade Patterns in 2013 after sewing my own activewear for myself and not finding existing patterns with the interesting details and attention to performance that I was looking for.

I knew I wanted to provide others with the means to sew activewear that could stand up to robust exercise but still be attractive (and have pockets in all the right places!) so I used my IT background and head for 3D thinking to turn these designs into fully illustrated digital patterns.
