threadbanger: patterns, burda syle and compai's book release party

i personally don't find patterns or the art of dressmaking hard to decipher (having 20+ years of experience in sewing under my belt at this juncture), but i know MANY folks out there do find it all to be quite the challenge, and i know people are craving instruction or just any help with this craft, period. i hear it all the time.
so, to boot and bolster those begging for help and inspiration, see this: in a recent episode, the ever awesome threadbanger checks in with some creative folks who promise to make that pattern-following process easier: burdastyle, who offers fabulous free patterns (with lots of great instruction to boot), and compai, who just released a new book of explicit ideas on how to rock and reuse a scarf.
(apropos of nothing besides the contents of that video, i'm totally grooving on nora of burdastyle's plaid blouse! check out the opposing plaids in it's yoke! anyone with me? ha.)
right on, rob and corrine! good stuff as always.
