Trish is the owner of Draft T Studio and a Tasmanian local. She offers Australian Sewing Guild (ASG) members a discount on her online sewing classes. This podcast is one of the many ASG Monday podcasts available.
Here is Trish’s story: I have sewn since I was 10 years old, experimenting and teaching myself to sew clothes, not craft or quilting.
I owned and operate a fabric shop (Ruche Fabrics) in Launceston for almost 8 years and closed it at the end of 2019 to free myself up from retail and concentrate on being an Ambassador for The Pattern Drafter. During that time, many of my local customers were ASG members. So essentially my passion for sewing clothes that fit because commercial patterns never have, has led me, through my fabric shop to meet Maria Boncaldo from The Pattern Drafter and totally embrace her drafting ruler because it the best I have ever used. She has over the years been an ASG Industry Partner and offered a discount to ASG for her face to face workshops. Now that I teach workshops on her behalf, as my own business, she encouraged me to join ASG and offer the same discount if I wished to, as there is a continued and growing interest from ASG members in The Pattern Drafter ruler.
Now with COVID, we decided to take it “online” and the discount offered to ASG members is exclusive to them only at the moment.
