The 2013 Pattern Industry Survey Report

Over the past few years so many of you have emailed us asking for industry statistics to use while developing business plans, applying for grants and loans, or contemplating major business or career decisions. Our answer, “There isn’t anything like this for our industry,” always disappointed me and inspired me to find a solution.
In June of 2013 my team and I launched the first ever Pattern Observer Industry Survey. We promoted the survey through blog posts, interviews, giveaways and other promotional tools and over 700 pattern designers, buyers and agents participated.
The goal of this survey was to gather data on what designers and business owners are earning, charging, and doing to grow their business. By sharing these findings we hope to empower pattern designers, agents and buyers to make smart, well informed decisions.
Curious if this information is relevant to your business? Take a peak through this free download.
The results of this survey are now available through a 49 page report and webinar recording. We want this information to be accessible to all, while still rewarding those who took the time to participate in the survey, so we ask you to pay what you can for this information, $5 or $10.

Stay Connected. Stay Inspired.
