Wow! What an amazing weekend it’s been. First off, you guys are wonderful! Pre-sales went better than I ever imagined. I had a sale four minutes after sending out the mailing list email! That’s some seriously fast typing. After that, sales came in from all over the world, literally! Japan, Germany, Australia, Singapore, Sweden – it’s surprising and exciting how far things spread through the internet. So thank you all, so much!
Missed the pre-sale? Don’t worry, pre-sales continue until Wednesday. You’ll receive a link to the pre-sale page when you sign up to the mailing list here.
One thing that came up over the weekend – some people had problems getting to the pre-sale page. Was that you? If there’s anyone out there that wanted to buy but had technical difficulties, please let me know and I’ll send you a new email. Sorry for the bugs and thanks for your understanding. I’ve learned how to make it work properly next time, live and learn!
And if you’re on the mailing list you already know that the pattern’s out for print! So exciting! I went to my first press check and watched as the pattern covers printed out, right in front of me. I even got a tour of the printing facility! Very, very cool.
They even let me take photos when I was there! Here you can see the pattern cover coming out the end of the printing machine:
I’ll share a few more pictures from my tour of the printing facility, as well as post a follow-up to the post about recycled paper. I’ve found solutions to eco-friendly printing that I’m really pleased with, look for an update coming this week!
As if life around here isn’t exciting enough, I’m all set to host my first Sew-Along as well! It’s official, the starting date will be January 10th. I’m really looking forward to it! It will be a great chance to ‘meet’ new people, get inspired, sew something new, and beat the January blues.
I’ll put together a preliminary Sew-Along timeline soon. Don’t worry if January doesn’t work for you, the posts will be here for when you’re ready. And I know some of you can’t wait that long to get started (hello, Julie!) so if you start sewing on your own and need a little help, you know where to find me!
