Happy Holidays...

Phew! The Carry-All pattern is all printed and packed and the pre-orders posted. All done. Finished. Over. Now it's time for wrapping presents and learning to relax....

The 2009 course schedule is still not done, and I'm afraid it probably won't be for a few weeks. Don't panic - there will be classes in 2009. They'll be starting a bit later than usual because of other commitments and product development. Oh - and I have a family (I forget sometimes). I'll keep you posted on the schedule.... bear with me on this one.

In the meantime, don't forget that my pattern range is actually designed as a self-paced bag-making course - from beginner to advanced - and I load my instructions with lots of diagrams, photos, tips and techniques. And there's always the Tips and Tutorials page on my website... you'll be fine without me, for a while at least!


It's been a big year and I thank you all for your support and interest - you really have no idea how much it means to me!!!

I'll be back in a few days. Have a safe and happy one.
love, joy, and the gentle hum of a sewing machine...

Enjoy your holiday vacation. Thank
you for all the tips on the blog and
your fantastic detailed instructions

You have enabled me to become a much
better purse maker.
