Happy Holidays!

I hope that everyone is enjoying their holidays. My family and I are enjoying a nice quiet day and then we will be off to visit with family for a few days.

A big "Thank You" to all of my customers for a wonderful year. Many new things are coming. So, sign up for the newsletters or visit the blogs often.

Now for more Shop Talk - the last couple of days a few new items arrived - shopping bag patterns, pin cushion pattern, and the new 5-in-1 sliding gauge by Clover. Click on the shop link at right and then click on the "What's New". Remember to request an invoice if you purchase during the session that the link launched.

December 26, 2008 through January 4, 2009, there will be free shipping on over hundred patterns. Remember to request an invoice to get all mailing charges removed. For purchases that included both a free shipping item and a regular shipping item, use the links, and I will pass off any savings as additional shipping discounts. Otherwise, I will send an invoice upon my return. I will check email from time to time while I'm gone to see if there are any questions or invoices which need to be sent.

Shipping will resume on January 5, 2009.

Have a safe New Years!

Happy Sewing!

Shop Talk - New Patterns

New items have been added to The Pattern Loft. Here's a sample:

The Biarritz Jacket pattern by Loes Hinse Design. This jacket has a separate collar piece. Lots of design possibilities here.

The Serged Satchel pattern by Indygo Junction. The ruffles on the bag are created using jelly rolls or 2 1/2" strips of bags. Very cute and feminine!

The Teatime Dress and Coat pattern by Mary Ann Donze Design for Indygo Junction. This is part of a new children's boutique series from Indygo Junction. The coat is really cute completed with recylced jeans. More of the boutique series will be arriving in early 2009.

There are more new bag patterns, apron patterns, and clothing patterns in the "What's New" section of the ebay store. Go check it out!

Remember to use to links when purchasing and request an invoice. Any savings will be passed on as shipping discounts. Purchase must be made during the session that was opened by the link.

If you're looking for something and can't find it in the store, ask. I can place a special order for items. Usually the first or second week of the month is when I place orders with the distributor.

Happy Holidays! Happy Sewing!
