#111 Tech Editing & Gauge – What You Need To Know

Not sure how to make your patterns available in more than one size (without making them all)?

Whether you aspire to be a professional tech editor, need to learn how to tech edit your own patterns or simply have no clue what gauge is, there is something valuable for you in this episode!

I’m joined by professional tech editor, Emily from Fiat Fiber Arts and we made it our personal mission to help you with gauge. She’ll help you understand what it means to tech edit a pattern (for those of you who design patterns) and understand what gauge is (for those of you who follow patterns for fun). Emily started tech editing professionally after realizing this was her passion. She is a wealth of knowledge and she doesn’t hold anything back! You might want to grab a notebook for this one – it’s a goodie!
