Every single time we have published a pattern and passed it on to the testers, it never fails - we bust our butts proofing, correcting, proofing, tweaking, proofing "just one more time" - and then 30 minutes after it's handed off to them, we hear back about a mistake - usually on page 2 or 3!
Those 10-12 extra pairs of eyes are what guarantees that we put out a pattern that the bagmaker can feel confident will not cause them unnecessary frustration, loss of money and time, or being unable to finish due to design issues.
Hats off to the testers who take the time to help us ensure that we put out a quality product so you can have an enjoyable bag making experience.
