freesewing.org

Tuesday 28 September 2021: Joost de Cock is the creator of Freesewing.org We learnt about this sewing resource in our chat with Wouter.vdub and with Enno Swets.

Joost talks about his sewing journey and freesewing.org

FreeSewing is an open source software project with the aim of becoming the Wikipedia of sewing patterns.

FreeSewing provides a core library for parametric pattern design, an ever-growing library of designs implemented in code, as well as a bunch of adjacent tools for building modern interfaces on top of our platform.

FreeSewing is not interested in fashion, trends, or publishing the hot new pattern of the season. Instead, the contributors want to empower makers by distilling the knowledge of the sewing community into parametric designs + documentation, and make that information freely available.

FreeSewing is built by contributors who are all volunteers, and financially supported by their Patrons.
