A Flood of New Retailers

All of a sudden, the number of retailers stocking Sewaholic Patterns has grown substantially. We now have a retailer in Sweden (Karinotillia) Belgium (Workshop) and Australia (Sew Squirrel.) More new retailers have been added across the United States and the United Kingdom! It might even be time to start sorting US retailers by state, instead of alphabetically, so it’s easier to find stores nearby.

There are so many additions to the list, I fear I’ll leave someone out by mistake, so I’ll list them all:

That’s 36 retailers now! It’s so exciting to have new stores stocking my patterns. It’s even more exciting when the emails start with ‘I’m opening a new store…’ Great news for all of us, when more fabric stores and sewing lounges are opening around the world. It’s a good sign that sewing is making a comeback, and small businesses are here to help!

I’ve been updating the Retailers page on both the Sewaholic blog and the Sewaholic Patterns store so keep an eye out for your favourite local store!

    Good news for you! And I’m sew happy to see Sew Main Street in Woodstock, GA on the list. Grand opening is on 5/23 and I’ll be delighted to make one of your patterns part of my first purchase there!

      I had NO IDEA Woodstock was getting a fabric store until this post. HUZZAH! I just shared your page on FB.

    Great News Tasia!!! I’m SO happy for your success!

  3. laura May 15, 2012 at 7:34 am #

    so happy that Sew to Speak in Columbus Ohio is on your list! Great little store!!! and congrats on all the coverage you’re getting with retailers –very exciting!

  4. Marie May 15, 2012 at 8:06 am #

    Congratulations Tasia, this is excellent news! My Cambie patter arrived last week, I can’t tell you how excited I am about making it up!

  5. Ginger May 15, 2012 at 8:10 am #

    Congrats!! I’m so glad your patterns are in so many stores! I just bought the Minoru the other day from A Fashionable Stitch, and now I’m looking forward to fall and having a new jacket to swan around in!

  6. Amy May 15, 2012 at 8:30 am #

    Congratulations! What fantastic news! When new patterns like the Cambie come out, how quickly do they get stocked at stores like these?

    • Tasia May 16, 2012 at 5:41 pm #

      It depends on how early they place the order, and how far away they are! Many retailers ordered the Cambie dress right away and have it in stock already. Some will take advance orders on their websites, too. In this case, most of the retailers who ordered the Cambie dress already have it in stock – the postal system has been really fast this time around!

  7. Helena May 15, 2012 at 9:06 am #

    I’m happy that Sweden’s on your new list. I really want to make a Minoru for fall.

  8. Andrea May 15, 2012 at 9:18 am #

    Congratulations!! That is so exciting for your business! I guess a lot of people just noticed how darn cute your designs are. You should definitely start organizing by state, I think that is how all of us from the US look for things: state first, then city. That way you could also see which states don’t have a Sewaholic presence and you can maybe reach out to them!
    P.S. I LOVE your new dress pattern!

  9. 1congn1to May 15, 2012 at 9:48 am #

    Woah! I didn’t even know Belgium had a store that sells your patterns! I’m thrilled we have one, though :D Thanks for the list!

    BTW, I recieved my shipment of patterns today. They look fabulous and I can’t wait to make them!

  10. Jaime May 15, 2012 at 9:55 am #

    Super Congrats!!! And what a joy to watch your pattern business grow – I’m living vicariously through you! lol. Gives me hope that some day, in a different stage of life maybe, I could try something similar with success. Thanks for the inspiration!! Love your patterns!

  11. Samina May 15, 2012 at 10:07 am #

    Congratulations! It’s fantastic to see you growing so fast!

  12. Evie May 15, 2012 at 10:12 am #

    Oh congratulations! It’s so good to know that independent pattern companies and small retailers are working together to continue our sewing heritage. Long may it continue.

  13. Holly May 15, 2012 at 11:01 am #

    I went to spool of thread on Sunday and was so excited to see all the different independent pattern companies they have in stock. It’s nice to have a store like that here in Vancouver. Congrats on having so many retailers stocking your patterns now :)

  14. Corinne May 15, 2012 at 12:03 pm #

    I am so proud of how much you have accomplished.I remember the beginning and you deserve all this good news because of all your hard work. Have a glass of something special to celebrate with Mr. Sewaholic!!!

  15. Katherine May 15, 2012 at 1:21 pm #

    Congratulations! However, I wish your patterns were at my local sewing haven – raystitch.co.uk. You should get in touch with them! They already have Colette and Megan Nielsen so I’m sure they’d be open to it. Keep up the good work!

  16. Jo May 15, 2012 at 3:17 pm #

    Congrats. Just finished my pendrell toile hopefully getting a crem crepe one finished by Saturday

  17. LeAnn May 15, 2012 at 3:22 pm #

    Congratulations!! Isn’t it amazing how the Internet makes us into international entrepreneurs!!

  18. Carolyn May 15, 2012 at 4:20 pm #

    So glad there’s an Australian retailer now! I was just pricing up shipping from Canada to Aus after seeing the Cambie dress and it was really hurting my pocket. Your patterns will be much more accessable to me now.

  19. Nothy Lane May 15, 2012 at 5:52 pm #

    I’m glad to hear of your successes Tasia. You deserve them all. It is a bit disappointing that you are better represented in Canada. That is one of the chief complaints of new business owners here – that we don’t take risks on new businesses! What a shame. Maybe all your Canadian fans should make a point of asking at least one retailer to carry your patterns? They are a great investment for any fabric store – they are well-designed and easy to sew, and flattering to most figure types. What about it ladies? Will you take me up on this challenge?

    • Carolyn May 17, 2012 at 5:29 am #

      I was just thinking that myself!

      There’s a sewing/crafting by-the-hour space on Queen West in Toronto called the Workshop that sells indie patterns, fabrics, etc. I’m sure they’d love to have Sewaholic patterns too!

      • Holly May 18, 2012 at 11:46 am #

        I was thinking the same thing, you are a wonderfully talented Canadian, your patterns should be in more Canadian shops! The Workroom seems like a natural fit for your patterns.

  20. JP May 15, 2012 at 9:10 pm #

    I just saw that Hart’s has your patterns, and I’m so excited! and they are offering 10% off this week, so I might just swing by and pick something up!

    Congrats! I sure appreciate your hard work on such lovely patterns–the newest dress is absolutely darling.

  21. Helen's Sewing Adventures May 16, 2012 at 12:32 am #

    That’s such great news – I love your patterns so I’m really happy they’re being stocked by so many people!

  22. Jenny May 16, 2012 at 1:36 am #

    And the Australian one has free shipping, woo woo :) This is great news!

  23. B.J. Moore May 16, 2012 at 2:31 am #

    People recognize Quality and TALENT! Way to go.

  24. Fiona May 16, 2012 at 2:38 am #

    Congratulations! I’m so glad all your hard work has paid off.

  25. Nikki May 16, 2012 at 3:26 am #

    Ooh, Australia is close. Next stop New Zealand – she says hopefully!

  26. Hanna May 16, 2012 at 4:32 am #

    If you were looking for a non-online UK retailer I think that http://www.eternalmaker.com/ is the only shop that sells Collette patterns over here. Also it’s super close to where I live!

  27. Sewing Princess May 16, 2012 at 6:20 am #

    So great to hear more European retailers are stocking your patterns. If I had a shop I would certainly carry them!

  28. Uta May 16, 2012 at 2:02 pm #

    Great news, congratulations! I’m happy there’s finally a shop in Euro-land (even if it’s in Belgium). There’s a German shop called volksfaden.de that are also into independent patterns; maybe that’s a possible venue, too? Anyway, keep up the great work and good luck!

  29. Ash May 18, 2012 at 5:58 pm #

    Congrats on your continuing success! That’s so fantastic to hear :) I meant to tell you that I received my Cambie dress pattern SUPER quick; this past Tuesday (the 15th)!! For a fleeting moment, I thought I might be able to whip it up in time for the wedding I’m attending Sunday since it arrived so early, but it just didn’t pan out that way. Regardless, I am SO SO SO excited to crack into it! Hurray :)

  30. Stitchology May 23, 2012 at 3:31 pm #

    Melisa from Stitchology in NM here. I sm so pleased to carry all your patterns! They sell really well and make great classes! Congrats on the continued growth.

  31. Mary Beth May 25, 2012 at 6:02 am #

    As I was strolling along a pretty street of shops in Leuven, Belgium the other day, your patterns displayed in a shop’s window drew me inside immediately. Yippee! I can’t believe that I stumbled on the Pendrell (etc.) that I’ve been coveting during my stint as an expat in Europe, and not in my U.S. hometown. Your pattern is beautifully done, and enthusiastically in production at my house. I’m thrilled that you supply Leuven’s own Workshop…and through them, me. Keep up the good work!
