Sewing & Stitchery Expo 2013: Meet Mary Collen

What ingenuity!  Meet Mary Collen.  Mary took a few moments from her busy schedule at the Sewing & Stitchery Expo to talk about her entry into the IPCA, Independent Pattern Company Alliance, Ticket To Paradise Challenge.  Mary used a Dana Marie Design pattern to create a ski jacket with QR codes that when scanned with a smartphone redirect the reader to her website for details about the jacket at  Mary used a SCHMETZ Microtex needle.

Mary didn't win the challenge this year, but she won last year with the beautiful jacket she is wearing in this video.  Note the timeless embellished lapel.  What will Mary think of next year?  I'm going to keep a look out for next year's IPCA challenge.
