Closing Time

Dear friends, in case you missed my last video, this was my big announcement: I will be closing up the Sewhooked Pattern shop, hosted on Etsy, on December 31st.

I’ve had a blast designing and selling over the years. I registered Sewhooked as a business back in 2006 and I’ve been working at it ever since. I’ve sold patterns to magazines, & websites, but most of all, I’ve sold them independently through a changing landscape of internet sales and to a variety of quilt stores.

A lot has changed, both personally and in the quilting world, since I first started in this business as an independent designer. What has become increasingly clear to me is that it’s time for me to move on to other adventures. I’m not leaving quilting or crafting, but I am closing up shop and will no longer be actively designing and I will no longer be selling patterns. There are lots of reasons, some of which I talk about on last week’s Talk to Me Tuesday.

Some important points: I’m not “leaving” or going away. Sewhooked.com will continue to exist and will still be a quilt and craft blog, but it will no longer be a business.

My free patterns, including all of those on Fandom In Stitches, will continue to be available. I will still run fandominstitches.com, but will be looking for more help to keep the website up-to-date and the Facebook communities blossoming.

2020 will be a year for contemplating what’s next and how to best be the person I choose to be.

Now through noon on December 31, 2019 is your last chance to purchase the patterns listed in my shop.

Thanks for the love and support all the years! 💜
