**There was a glitch earlier which meant that email addresses weren’t being collected – if you already completed the survey and would like to be included in the giveaway, just make a comment below and your name will be added to the giveaway! Sorry for any confusion.
Also, the survey is embedded into this blog post (it’s not a link), and it works on a computer or smartphone. If you subscribe to the CSC by email and get the blog post in that format, you need to come over to the CSC website to fill it out! (it won’t work through the email**
The CSC editors are often approached by people asking us: how many plus size women actually sew? Is it worth it for smaller pattern designers to expand their size range, which often involves a lot of work creating a new block and grading rules? Of course, all of us on here know that we are a thriving community! But it’s hard for many organizations and pattern designers to get hard facts about who’s out there.
That’s what we decided to hold the first ever Curvy Sewing Collective Sizing Survey. It’s a quick 5 minute survey where we ask you for key measurements and a few questions about adjustments you make, and your sewing habits. Our objective is to create a really helpful set of data that reflects the plus size sewing community and helps show what a huge potential there is for pattern designers and sewing companies to expand into plus sizes.
We hope lots of you will take part to help us achieve this goal – but there’s also a prize of a $20 gift voucher to Cashmerette Patterns that will be given to one randomly chosen participant! All your personal information will be anonymous, but we will aggregate your data and publish the results on the CSC.
The poll is open until May 18th 11.59pm EST.
