Tech Editing Goal:

My goal is to be the Pepper Potts to your Tony Stark. I want you to have a pattern that you can release and be confident with it. Here’s a list of things that this Pepper will do to help:

What does it cost:

I charge £25/$35 per hour billed in 15-minute increments. A simple accessory will generally take anywhere between 30 mins to 1 hour. A simple garment or more complex accessory will generally take between 1 to 2 hours.

We will agree a time when I will work on it so that you will know when the 1st edit will be completed.

Initial consultations and the final edit (just before publication) are free of charge.

Catherine is a thorough, consistent and helpful tech editor. Her notes back on my pattern were thoughtful, easy to understand, and timely. She definitely exceeded my expectations and is lovely to work with. We even have an 8 hour time difference, and that has not hindered our communication at all. I would highly recommend Catherine and have already booked her for a second tech edit and schematic help!

Working with Catherine was great. She took my pattern and catch all the style mistakes I had overviewed. Not only that but after having sent me the first corrected version, I wasn’t able to check her corrections for about a month. She was very patient with me, and when I was finally able to review the corrections and actually make them, she was prompt with the revision. I’m really happy with the final version of my pattern, and with Catherine’s work!!

I am just starting down the road of getting my knitting patterns published after completing a City and Guilds course in knitwear design.  Finding a reliable tech reviewer seemed quite a difficult task, but after finding Catherine through facebook and giving her a go, I have been very pleased with her work.  Working with Catherine has been a very positive experience.  She is very professional, helpful and supportive.  Scheduling her through Calendly is also very easy and flexible – so easy, in fact, that I’ve scheduled her again!

I really appreciated Catherine’s work on my pattern. From past experience, I have learned that it is impossible to spot those little mistakes (punctuation, random misplaced words etc) in your own work, so having someone else to work through and pick them up is essential to releasing a polished pattern. The editing turnaround was very quick and I had the comments back before I knew it. Communication was clear and easy to follow with comments written up as pdf annotations. I also appreciated the offer of a final read through and check before release.
