Previously For Sale Patterns

Hello, friends! I stopped selling quilt patterns as of December 31, 2019, though I do continue to have requests for my previously for sale patterns. If you find yourself in need of one of my currently retired patterns, I will offer you the pattern in return for a small donation to a food bank, non-profit, or other similar charity in your area.

Email your receipt and I’ll be happy to send the pattern. Please, only one pattern per receipt. 

Please note that my free patterns are still availble: Free Patterns, Free Fandom Patterns, Free Harry Potter Patterns.

Last Call

This is the last call for those of you who would like to purchase from the Sewhooked Pattern shop.

I will be permanently closing my shop TODAY, December 31, 2019, at approximately NOON Central Standard time.

I’d like to share a huge thank you to everyone who has supported my efforts and independent design over the last decade and a half.

As a reminder, my free patterns will continue to be available, but I will no longer be selling patterns and my current For Sale patterns will no longer be available. Sewhooked will continue to be my crafty home, but will no longer be a business. For more information, please see last week’s Talk to Me Tuesday.

See you later today in my video. Love and best wishes for a Happy New Year! ♥

Instagram Quilt Festival (#IGQuiltFest)

20190301_103448

Hello, friends!

I’m participating in the #IGQuiltFest over on Instagram. Follow me – @sewhookedjen!

#IGQuiltFest is hosted by Amy’s Creative Side and encourages quilters on Instagram to share photos daily using a variety of prompts during March for National Sewing Month!

Amy Ellis is the same creative soul who brought us the Blogger’s Quilt Festival. I participated in several of those events over the years and always thought they were a super fun way to connect to and get to know other quilters! You can see my posts for those events here.

Hop on over to Instagram and get to know me, and lots of other great quilters, better!

My Favorite Things 2016!

My Favorite Things 2016 Block of the Month sewhooked.com

I’ve been teasing the 2016 Sewhooked project for some weeks now and I just can’t wait another day!

Beginning January 1, 2016 and each month for the rest of next year, I will be sharing My Favorite Things!

My Favorite Things will include 12 patterns to paper piece in both 6″ and 12″ as well as a number of bonus blocks to mix and match your own favorites.

On the first day of each month, you’ll have the opportunity to download that month’s pattern for free. After the first day, each pattern will be available for a small fee from my Craftsy Pattern Shop, with the entire block set available for sale by December.

I plan to include instructions for at least one possible layout to create a quilt from your blocks, but knowing me, I will have more than one by the time we get to December!

I hope you’ll join me in 2016 for what I hope will be a super fun event!

Featured Pattern: Bicycle!, just $2.95 on Craftsy!

Two Dollars in March

  

If you have visited my Craftsy shop, then you’ll know that the grand majority of the individual blocks I’ve designed and shared there are priced at $2. This has been the case since I first opened my shop.

My philosophy has always been to keep my prices as low as my little business can bear because I know what I myself, as a quilter and a shopper, think is a fair price.

It’s been several years now since I first started selling patterns and in order to keep up with the craziness that are PayPal fees, all $2 patterns will be going up to $2.95 in April. I do hope you’ll forgive me for this business necessity and I also hope that if there is a pattern (or patterns!) you’ve been thinking about getting, you’ll grab it now while it’s still $2!

The prices of entire sets will stay the same, so, as usual, buying patterns by the set will save you a significant amount.
