Hello Tanja! Can you tell us a bit about you and Glasshouse Patterns?

Sewing became a special craft for me at the age of 16 when my mother taught me how to use a sewing machine to create the carnival costume of my dreams. From then on, my sewing ideas exploded in number. Loving challenges, I practiced sewing every type of garment I could think of and worked with every kind of fabric I found.

Since I love teaching and I’ve always admired the profession of a sewing pattern designer, I started to create my own sewing patterns in 2018. From then on, I’ve been working on the side on drafting and refining sewing patterns.
