Established in 2016, we have been around long enough to see the shifts in the online sewing community and we are here for it.
We aren't just about creating great patterns and offering fabulous fabrics. We work hard to create safe spaces within the sewing community where sewists can feel welcome, included, and inspired!
We are here to listen, learn, and grow with our community. We are never satisfied with the "what is" and instead focus on the "what could be".
Meet The Designers
Ashley Hermann- Owner
I am Ashley! I am the original Founder and Creator of PSCo Patterns!
I am a mommy of 4 tiny humans! I started my sewing adventure many moons ago. Let me tell you when I started, I was horrible at sewing! I am stubborn to my core, and I was determined overcome my fear of sewing a straight line and here we are!
My grandmother was my biggest cheerleader when it came to sewing. She was so proud that there was another seamstress in the family. I feel her with me all the time when I am sewing.
When I am am not designing something new, I am wrangling my herd of humans. We can be found anywhere we go, we are a loud bunch!
At the end of 2019, I decided to take the challenge of being a full time working from home mom! It has been a joy and a bit of chaos all at once.
Ashley Riley- Owner
Hey, I am Ashley R.- the other half of Team Ashley! I joined the PSCo team in 2017 as a designer and it's been love ever since!
I am a work from home wife and mom to 4 littles. In addition to the kiddos- my husband and I have also managed to collect three doggos and two cats. Needless to say we have a full house!
My love of sewing and designing came from a few places. First, would be my mom. She taught me to sew when I was young and now I am returning the favor by helping her rediscover her love of sewing! My love for designing comes mostly from my dad and nan. My nan would spend hours with me drawing gowns from the old movies that we watched together. My dad passed on the need to know how things go together- plus an affinity for math, which you use a lot in design!
Being able to work from home, doing something I love, has been such a blessing these last few years! I am so excited to keep creating with you!
Calli Benko- Designer
Hi!! I’m Calli Benko, aka Chatty Cathy, hailing from the Great White North. Sewing has been a passion of mine since I was a kid sewing Halloween Costumes. Now there isn’t a day when I’m not wearing at least one item I’ve made. Designing PDF patterns has been a thought in my mind for a few years. Grateful, excited, and inspired are just a few of my big feelings right now. I can’t wait to bring you all more patterns in the future!
Shakita Cook- Designer
Hey y'all, I’m Shakita Cook from Richmond, Va! I taught myself how to sew in 2014, and haven’t stopped since! Excitement can’t begin to describe how I feel working on the Petite Stitchery team as a Staff Designer. I am all about body positivity and inclusion, so I am ecstatic to be learning all the things to help others feel confident in their self-made garments.
Nichole Steuart- Designer
Hey y’all, I am Nichole Steuart and I reside in the Colorado Rockies. If Im not outside enjoying the sunshine and snow, you can probably find me in my sewing studio. My life has been consumed by design ever since my grandmother taught me how to sew as a child. Ive had the opportunity to do so many diverse things in the fashion world, from backstage seamstress work, teaching and now I get to design for PSCo and I could not be more excited!
