Behind the Scenes Peek and Introduction to Jessica Hurst, Assistant Extraordinarie

Paganoonoo is growing!  

Jessica Hurst, queen of vintage clothing, jill of many trades, official Paganoonoo illustration guru and sanity checker, is transforming business practices at Paganoonoo!!!! 

Paganoonoo has a goal to engage every stitcher in the world with a successful upcycling experience, giving them a new tool for their sewing toolbox, and exponentially increasing the number of garments kept in use and out of the land fill.

We have a commitment to producing highly useable patterns, with plenty of step-by-step instructions and illustrations. 

Michelle drapes the designs, working on prototypes until the steps are reduced to the best methods. Each illustration starts out as an in-progress photo of a prototype. 

The photo is then transformed into a simple line drawing, with the background removed.  

Jessica has taken over illustrating the new patterns and as you can see, she does a beautiful job of capturing the essentials.  

Working together we've created more efficient and standardized methods of pattern building. 2016 is going to be a prolific year in terms of new pattern releases! 

We look forward to speaking with you at the Sewing and Stitchery expo* in Puyallup, WA the last weekend in February, in person elsewhere, or through social media.  We especially look forward to seeing your Paganoonoo influenced upcycled garments.  

As Always, Happy Upcycling!


* Registration is open for Paganoonoo sessions at the Expo
