It’s my privilege to once again introduce y’all to one of my testers: Jess of DiPaul’s Designs! I “met” Jess on my business page when she applied to be a tester for me. A mutual love of The Doctor drew us together and quickly made us friends! I feel like I know her even though we have never met “in real life”.
I often say (and truly mean it) that I would not be able to do what I do without my testers. So as a small thank you to them, I feature them here!
This time is the wonderful Pamela of Pammy’s Bare Beanie. She is an amazing lady and does so much for the crafting community. She shares posts, cheers designers and other crafters on and is one of the sweetest people I have met on this crochet journey of mine!
I asked her a few questions and here are her answers!
Hello, everyone! I’m so happy to introduce myself to you all.
My name is Carol Rupprecht, and I’m a stay at home mommy to 2 crazy boys: my toddler who is one
(crawling since 5 months, walking since 9. Gosh,he’s a handful.), and my husband who is a child at heart. I’ve only been crocheting for a little less than 2 years and I can’t believe how far I’ve come since I started.
As I said earlier this week, I wouldn’t be able to do what I do without my marvelous testers. They help me to make sure that my patterns are what they should be before I release them for the public to use. The first one that I am going to highlight is the wonderful Hollie! She is my right hand with my pattern test lab. I love working with her, and we recently found out that we were born only 3 days apart! So here is Hollie and a little bit about her in her own words:
I am going to start doing a feature titled “Meet My Testers”.
These are going to be profiles of the amazing ladies that test my patterns and make sure they are as good as we can make them before I release them to the public. They make sure that my directions make sense, that I haven’t missed any typos or errors and that my patterns work out like my head sees them (because sometimes it doesn’t work that way!) and are generally my cheerleaders!
I couldn’t do what I do without them and so wanted to acknowledge them and what they do in a special way. They are amazing, generous and talented people who I am so blessed to have in my life.
The first profile will be on Friday!
