Meet Our Team
|Hi, I’m Sonia! Owner and designer of Sonia Estep Designs. I’m married to my best friend and am a mother of 3 wild boys. When I’m not sewing you can find me somewhere outdoors. Fishing, camping, and baseball pretty much sums up my life as a boy mom! I fell down the rabbit hole into the magical world of pdf patterns during what seemed like an endless search for a very specific raglan. Long story short, I ended up making my own. Shortly after, I discovered my love and interest for designing my own patterns! And now I’m so excited to be able to share them with you!
Hi, I’m Jodi! I’m a professional photographer and a mom to 3 awesome boys. I’ve been sewing since I was 9 years old and met Sonia through pattern testing a few years ago. I’m so excited to be a part of her team! I have several hats that I wear here at SED. I help Sonia manage the day-to-day aspects involved with running a pattern business. I also edit and process all the photos, and I run the website and backend technical “stuff” (newsletters, affiliate programs, etc). Thank you in advance to everyone who supports our team - I truly love being a part of it!
|Hi, I'm Jessica! I'm married to my favorite guy ever and I am a girl-mom to my two daughters! I taught myself to sew a little over 4 years ago and met Sonia by pattern testing for her when she started Sonia Estep Designs! Sewing is my passion, but I also really love baking, reading, and organizing! I'm also a pretty big TV show and movie buff. My main role at SED is the Pattern Test Coordinator. I love getting the opportunity to interact with other sewists, especially through SED! Sonia has really created something special!
|Hi, I’m Jessica! I’m a stay at home, homeschooling mother of six and sewing fanatic. I taught myself how to sew in 2007 and got hooked on making clothing in 2013. I enjoy sewing clothes for my whole family! I met Sonia in the wonderful world of online sewing groups and love supporting such a talented designer and friend! My main role at SED is helping coordinate sales and sew alongs!
Hello! I'm Kendel, I am a girl mom to three adorable daughters and the wife of a very supportive husband. Sewing for them has been my passion for the past six years. My parents bought me my first machine in 2006 and after having my first child I discovered PDF patterns. My love grew for the art and I took on pattern testing when my twins were turned one. I started testing for Sonia on her first pattern and have been hooked since.
Hi, I’m Christy! I’ve been married to the best guy since we were 20, and we have 4 kids (22, 20, 15 and 10). I’ve been a stay at home mom for 20+ years. My mom taught me to sew when I was 8! Sewing got put on the back burner when we started a family but I picked it back up shortly after our youngest was born. I started making bags, doing craft shows and local sales. About 5 years ago, I decided to try my hand at clothes and pdf patterns. I am in love with making my own clothes! Hannah was my first test for Sonia and I seriously love every pattern she gives us!
