Meet Megan Nielsen

Contemporary wardrobe staples that you can make yourself

I’m Megan Nielsen, but you can call me Meg. I design sewing patterns with real people in mind and am passionate about sewing beautiful clothing that you can wear every day. My goal is to make sewing your own stylish wardrobe enjoyable and easy, and I’m here to help.

Megan Nielsen patterns are of the highest quality

Gone are the days of spending hours struggling to put together a garment from a pattern where the sizing doesn’t make sense, the styles are outdated and none of the notches match up.

Nope.

Megan Nielsen patterns are professionally drafted to industry standards and I am uncompromising on quality. Every design is thoroughly tested internally by my team and externally by normal people who love to sew (like you!).

Our paper patterns come in a beautiful envelope and are printed on high quality tissue paper, accompanied by an easy to use instruction booklet to guide you through every stage of construction with clear diagrams and simple language.

Our digital patterns come with the most print options on the market and include print at home instructions in US letter and A4 size, print at home pattern tiles in US letter and A4 size and copy shop print files in US 36x48” and A0 size.

We understand that we all live in a digital age, and we are the only pattern company to provide a free iOS app to accompany all pattern purchases. The Megan Nielsen Patterns App allows you to access your pattern instructions, important information and help tutorials from your iPhone or iPad. Anytime, anywhere.

Free tutorials and amazing support

I learned to sew as a teenager through trial and error and many frustrating sewing sessions that ended in tears. I don’t want that to be your story.

We provide free indepth sewing tutorials with clear photographs to guide you through every stage of constructing your garment. And even provide tutorials for bonus pattern variations so you can get the most out of your pattern purchase.

This is not a big impersonal business, I care about your personal sewing journey and believe in providing amazing customer service. My team and I are always here to help in any way we can, so please feel free to send us an email at hello@megannielsen.com if you have any questions about our patterns.

Lets Connect!

One of the reasons I love designing sewing patterns is that I get to connect with other people who love to sew, like you! You can connect with me on my blogInstagram, Youtube, Facebook, Twitter, and Pinterest

Giving back 

As a Christian I believe really strongly in running my businesses ethically and am committed to using my brand to support humanitarian causes. I donate a portion of all profits to the Asylum Seeker Resource Centre, which provides vital assistance to refugees seeking asylum in Australia, and World Vision who have numerous worldwide programs to tackle poverty and humanitarian issues. We also produce some of our products through Freeset, an organization which strives to help women escape sex slavery, by providing employment in a sheltered workshop under fair trade conditions.
