01 May A new place for patterns
Have you heard about the new venture by the folks from C&T Publishing? It is called PatternSpot.com and will be a marketplace for downloadable quilting and sewing patterns.
Downloadable patterns provide such instant gratification I think the idea of having many of them in one place is fantastic. My understanding is that you’ll be able to search on the type of pattern you are looking for whether it is for a quilt or clothing or other sewing projects. You will also be able to follow a designer so that you are notified whenever they upload a new pattern.
The site is still under development, but you can sign up to get their newsletter and see how things are coming along at PatternSpot.com. They are expecting the site to go live and be open for business around mid-May, with the official launch in June. Take a look and let me know what you think.
