The Barcelona – now in paper!

Great news! Our Barcelona pattern is now in print!

We have a very limited number in stock this week, as I managed to get a pre-order sent, but more will be arriving at the weekend so there is still plenty of time to make your party dress!

the Barcelona in green velvet, fully lined using this tutorial

Or will you make a cosy cord skirt with this tutorial?

and which back will you pick, classic high or sassy v?

Printed Pattern Update!

MAVEN_PATTERNS_PAPER_PATTERNS

It was so lovely to meet you all at the Sewing Bee Live and The Knit & Stitch Show! A big thank you to all of you that took the time to say hi, bought one of our paper patterns or showed your support with a smile. The sewing community really is the best!

Our newly launched paper patterns were very popular – phew! – and I’m very pleased to say that after a lot of beavering away behind the scenes (behind the seams?) we are nearly ready to sell them online. It’s taken a little longer than anticipated – life kinda got in the way over here.

The paper patterns will almost certainly be on Etsy first, alongside our PDF patterns. And then we will pop them in our very own shop when we’ve dotted all the i’s and crossed all the t’s.MAVEN_PATTERNS_PAPER_PATTERNS

Our collection of patterns each come in such a beautiful box, lovely and practical for keeping all of your pattern pieces and the Maker Instruction booklet together.

And of course, they’d make the most delightful Christmas gift for the sewist in your life!???

We’ll be back with an update in a few days…Happy Sewing!!

The Knit & Stitch Show!

 

We had so much fun meeting all of you lovely sewing people at the Sewing Bee Live Show, we’re doing all again next week at the Knit & Stitch Show at Alexandra Palace!

And we are taking lots of our delicious paper patterns with us.MAVEN_PATTERNS_PAPER_PATTERNS

Oh, my!

Currently, that is the only way to get hold of one of our beautiful patterns.

Yes, I know I may be a tad biased…but I’m not wrong, they really are quite lovely!

MAVEN_PATTERNS_PAPER_PATTERNS

Each pattern is presented in a reusable wallet that closes with a velcro spot. No more ripped envelopes or pattern pieces slipping out and escaping when you’re not looking.MAVEN_PATTERNS_PAPER_PATTERNS

Inside the wallet, you’ll find the pattern and the Maker Instruction Booklet.

As always, you get a professionally graded pattern in either UK sizes 8 – 18 or UK S – XL (our Maria Apron and Wendy Smock PDF patterns currently go up to UK size large, but we will be updating them in the future to include the XL size). All the seam allowances are included and clearly marked on the pattern and in the Maker Instructions Booklet.

The Maker Instructions

I love these little booklets…16 pages of clear and concise guidance so you can be your own Maven and make your perfect dress, top or apron!MAVEN_PATTERNS_PAPER_PATTERNS

We’d love to meet you and chat sewing. Don’t be shy, pop by and say “Hi!”

We will be on stand G3
