One of the things I have been feverishly working on is my new pattern shop, and I am delighted to announce that it is now officially open! I have added some new patterns too, including the design for the "Cassia Cameo" (above and below).
Whilst Etsy has been great until now, there are a few reasons behind my decision to make the move to this pattern shop. For a start I am free to put more of a creative stamp on it so that it fits in better with my blog and the way I want things to look. More importantly the technology behind this shop should allow me to deliver pattern orders automatically as soon as an order is completed, rather than having to email each order out individually myself, so it is easier for me and quicker for you - what's not to like about that? Also it means I can work in my native currency (being British Pounds), which makes far more sense to me. Of course it still all goes through PayPal so you can buy things no matter where in the world you are shopping from and it will convert the money into your own currency just like when you shop on Etsy.
I still have some things I want to jig about but overall I am quite happy with it so far:
Please take a look and let me know what you think.
