“I have worked with Sue and Pattern Potentials for the last 7 years. Sue does all of our grading each season, and produces markers for all our styles. She delivers a wonderful and prompt service and is a pleasure to work with. It’s great to know the back history of our past 14-15 collections are accessible if we want to revisit or rework styles from our archive. I would highly recommend all the options that Sue offers from pattern making/grading/markers.
Thank you, Sue!”
