Pattern Store Under Maintenance, But It Works!

Hey everyone! Just a quick post to let you know that the Pattern Store is undergoing a bit of maintenance. It looks a little strange now – the major difference being that it’s only half the page width instead of going full across the page – but it does work and allow you to place orders, thankfully! So it works, it just looks a little different than usual.

There was a software update that required quite a large amount of work behind the scenes. And as you may have guessed, I know sewing, but I don’t know the behind of a computer nearly as well. So it’s been a bit of work getting things back to normal.

(here’s what the pattern store normally looks like!)

I apologize if you’ve tried to place an order in the last 24 hours and been told your country was not an option! All countries are always available as options here at Sewaholic Patterns. I have fixed up the country settings and all should be working now. In fact, you can now order patterns to ship to 230+ different countries instead of the previous 90-something, so this update is a really good thing!

Still having problems with the pattern store or the shopping cart? Let me know and we’ll work it out. Thanks for your understanding!

    Seeing as how this is a website related post, maybe you wouldn’t mind me asking a question about your website here?

    I love how compact the sidebar section for the popular/latest/comments/tag part is. Is that a WordPress plugin you found somewhere or something custom built?

      Hey Kris! It’s actually a widget (not a plugin) that’s came as part of the wordpress theme. I’m glad you like it, I think about taking it off now and then, so it’s nice to hear good feedback.

        Ah ok, thanks! I’ve had website space for the longest time and enjoyed making my own custom theme but now that time has passed, I find I don’t like the design any more and am starting over. I probably spend more time designing themes than using them. (Fabric stash equivalent of web design?) Maybe I’ll find a plugin out there that does something similar.

    Hi Tasia

    I am trying to make an order for the winner of my giveaway but the site is not working. I thought everything was ok – but the order wont submit. Is there a problem with ordering do you know ? If you could let me know that would be GREAT :-) xx

      Hi there – I think it was a problem with the server as the ‘submit’ button seems to be working now and order placed no worries ! Sorry about that – the computer system must have been having a funny 5 minutes ! xx
