Freebie Friday, (August 22nd, 2014), Help Us Decide

Hi everyone,

On Friday (August 22, 2014) we'll have one of the following four patterns available for free. This week we're featuring Jennifer Serr and her wonderful Bonjour Teaspoon pattern collection

More About Jennifer Serr & Bonjour Teaspoon (in her own words) 

While on a couture tour in Paris, I met a very special little pug named Teaspoon. Teaspoon (the dog) represents all things cute and fabulous to me and thus inspired the name of this enterprise. Now a little dog named Magic keeps me company in the studio, when I'm not making patterns or teaching kids how to sew.

After leaving a corporate pattern making career at Gap Inc. and while launching a bridal business, I started teaching. It was a great way to earn money and keep my brain active. I had no idea how rewarding it would be. Working privately with a very talented 8 year old and her friends led me to expand my repertoire to include classes for kids. We have so much fun designing, sewing, and thinking about Fashion!

Along with teaching kids to sew, I've developed an assortment of patterns appropriate to the beginning and intermediate sewer. Keeping my students in mind has been important when creating the patterns in this collection.  Bonjour Teaspoon Patterns are stylish, easy to wear designs that are fun to make and fairly easy to put together.

Visit www.jenniferserr.com to learn more about Jennifer, her sewing classes, and her terrific pattern work!
