The very first paper sewing pattern I bought was from Indie Stitches (the Sewaholic Saltspring Dress, if you must know). The pattern arrived super quick (like the next day!) and postage was free within Australia. Fantastic! I've since bought many more patterns from Indie Stitches and recommended them to my family and blog readers via my wish list.
I was so pleased when Caitlan, of Indie Stitches, emailed me a couple of months back to thank me for recommending her online pattern shop here on my blog. Since then, Caitlan and I have become great friends via email and recently 'real life' friends! The sewing community really is a fabulous thing full or extraordinary people. Caitlan is a wonderful gal who balances mummahood, work, sewing, knitting, and being a small business owner.
I'm super excited to announce that Indie Stitches is now an official sponsor of my blog. Check out the button to your right and take a look at the fantastic and ever growing list of independent pattern designers that Caitlan stocks (get ready to drool).
Sponsorship wont effect my sewing plans, pattern reviews or opinions. But, it will allow me to get my hands on more patterns sooner as well as run the occasional giveaway. Caitlan and I are currently conspiring to put together my first ever blog giveaway - woo hoo!
Welcome Indie Stitches and Caitlan! Very happy to have you :)
