Butterick Biography

The Butterick brand was founded in 1863 by Ebenezer Butterick. It changed the face of home sewing forever with the first graded sewing pattern. Butterick continued to lead the way all over the world in make-it-yourself fashions for the next 150 years. Now part of the McCall Pattern Company, Butterick is taking this expertise further by launching a new range of sewing machines and accessories to market, exclusively available at Create and Craft.

Butterick Biography

Debbie Shore Quote:

“I've been working with Butterick for some years now, demonstrating patterns and appearing at events, so I'm so excited to be involved in the development of their brand new sewing machine. Butterick is the most well-known pattern company in the world, producing patterns for the craft sewer and dressmaker alike. The EB6100 caters for novice and experienced sewers, dressmakers, quilters and home sewers. Ebenezer would have been proud!

Most of my work is with new sewers or those coming back to sewing, so working with McCalls/Butterick helps me take them on a new journey. The journey I actually began when I first started sewing! My mum was a dressmaker so I was brought up in a Butterick world.

I'm really looking forward to working with Create and Craft again. We can reach so many people worldwide and offer inspiration and advice to so many sewers. I love the personal touch, the interaction of live TV with presenters and viewers. Two huge brands coming together to bring the customer an amazing opportunity - who wouldn't want to be involved?!”
