Sewaholic squirrel

I'm ridiculously excited. I finally got my shit together enough to place an order for the following Sewaholic patterns that I've been lusting over:




I think these patterns, along with the ones that I already have, are pretty much my perfect wardrobe! I've been looking longingly at these patterns for a long time, but the shipping from Canada was really expensive, and I baulked at spending so much money on the patterns and basically having to spend enough to buy another whole pattern on shipping too.

I saw on the Sewaholic website that they have one Australian supplier, an online pattern store called Sew Squirrel and went to have a look. The patterns were the same price on the Australian store as on the Canadian store, but with free shipping! Win! I immediately bought all three patterns. Within half an hour I got an email from Sarah from Sew Squirrel letting me know that the last Renfrew had just been sold, and that there would be a slight delay. I really wasn't fussed, as I won't be sewing the pattern in the next couple of weeks anyway, but was really pleased with the fantastic level of support that I received.

I'm so excited to have a place to buy the patterns that I love that is both supporting a local company, and has free shipping and much quicker shipping times! I'll DEFINITELY be buying from them again.

Hurrah!

  1. I got the cambie from Sew squirrel, she posted it really quickly. I've read your blog, you've made a lot! I was no where near as fast when I first started out. I look forward to seeing your cambie. Kat

    1. Thanks Kat! I've been feeling pretty unproductive lately, so it was really lovely to get your comment. I've been lusting after the Cambie for months so I'm very excited to get started on it!

    1. I've been eyeing off quite a few of those too - I'm trying to restrain myself to what I can reasonably sew up in a few months. I suspect I will end up slipping and buying a few more sooner rather than later though! I love the new Kelly skirt from Megan Neilsen. So pretty!
