Regarding Changes at Craftsy

Big changes are afoot at Craftsy, and if you are following any independent designers on social media or via their blogs & websites, you’ve probably been hearing a lot about it over the last few days.

For those of you who haven’t heard, Craftsy sent emails to all of their designers, including me, on December 19 to let us know that they are drastically changing the platform.

Many designers are losing their shops entirely. No questions, no ability to petition for a second chance.

Other designers, like me, received a message saying that we can keep our shop, but that some of our patterns may be deleted. There is no list of patterns that may be excluded from our shops.

Stores will be purged or locked down on December 28, depending on whether or not designers are being cut. My understanding is that the remaining shops will be frozen until some time in 2019, meaning those designers who do make the cut won’t have access to change their stores.

We were hit with this all at once. No chance for input, no time to process with just Dec 19 – 28 to figure it all out.

Here is the FAQ they have created for this change.

Because of the past ease of using Craftsy, most of my paid pattern business was built on their platform. Losing control over my pattern business is not an option. I am an independent designer and have been since I started down this path many years ago. I do everything myself from designing, writing, communicating with pattern testers, editing, publishing, promoting, etc.

Effective immediately, my Craftsy shop is closed. 

As of the writing of this post, I have deleted 261 patterns from my Craftsy pattern shop, both free and for sale. There is a lot of work ahead of me to remove & change all the links on Sewhooked and to find appropriate new homes for all of my patterns. Please know that I will get all of this sorted out, but it is going to take a considerable effort and a lot of time.

On that note, Craftsy says on the FAQ linked above that customers will continue to have access to purchased patterns which have been purged will be able to print or save those PDF files. However, if at some point this because an issue for you, please feel free to send your receipt to me at sewhooked@gmail.com and I will be happy to send the pattern or patterns you purchased to you directly.

All of my FREE patterns are still available right here on Sewhooked. You can access them to print or save. See FREE PATTERNS in the menu above. There are several menu options to choose from.

For the time being, all of my paid patterns will be in my Etsy shop. If you’re looking for a pattern not currently listed, please get in touch and I will add it for you. I am looking into several other possible platform options as I decide what to do next.

As of right now, my Craftsy & Share-A-Sale links no longer work. If you need help finding a pattern, please contact me. Be patient as you wait for replies. 

Sewhooked is no longer a Craftsy affiliate effective December 22, 2018.

For the time being, I’ll be enjoying my family as much as possible for the holidays and I hope you get to do the same.

In Stitches,

Surprise! New pattern – Signs Signs Signs

Surprise!

Guess who has been working on a new pattern in between all the other craziness?!

You guessed it!

Some time ago, Robin B. made an amazing suggestion that I have had in the back of my mind ever since – a multi-directional signpost.

With all the travel I’ve been doing this year, I absolutely could not resist designing this one. I did a little research and a little sketching. I worked up a pattern and sent it off to my pattern testers.

It is now tested and ready to share!

This awesome, versatile pattern is perfect to express your wanderlust or to point to where your loved ones are, or maybe share your favorite fandom locations. Think fabric with existing text, hand or machine embroidery, stenciling, fabric markers, the list goes on!

sign post title

Find Signs Signs Signs in both of my online shops:

$3.95 on Craftsy

or

$3.95 on Etsy

10″ x 30″ (10 1/2″ x 30 1/2″ with seam allowance) as shown, made using three paper pieced blocks.

Need more signs? Duplicate and rotate the center block! Add to larger projects or make as is for a fun wall hanging.

Includes full-color instructions with fabric amounts, suggestions, and paper pieced pattern.

tested by amber

And here is Amber’s fantastic tested version! She has big plans for this and I can’t wait to share what she does!

If  you try your hand at this pattern, I’d love to see what you do with it over in the Sewhooked Facebook Group! Not on Facebook? Tag me on Instagram (@sewhookedjen) or Twitter (@sewhooked)!

Thank you for stopping by and have a fantastic weekend! 😀

See you soon!

New Pattern – Braided Confetti!

title

I’m delighted to share a new(ish!) pattern!

braided kaleidescope 500x500

A version of this pattern (above), originally known as Braided Kaleidoscope, was published in a magazine many years ago. The magazine went out of business and the copyright has reverted to me. Because it’s not been available for some time, I thought it would be fun to update the pattern for 2017 (almost 2018!), turn it from a single block into a quilt, and share it with you!

While the piecing hasn’t changed, the color HAS. The new version is colored quite differently to create a new effect. It’s also designed to make a 46″ quilt.

 

Make it scrappy, soft, or bright. Whatever works best for you!

Pattern includes fabric amounts, paper pieced pattern units, coloring page, and instructions to make the quilt shown here, all for just $4.95.

New Pattern – Frosted Firs

Frosted Firs Title

I debuted Frosted Firs in yesterday’s Talk to Me Tuesday because I just couldn’t wait for the official pattern release!

20170103_172719

Frosted Firs was inspired by my family’s winter trip to Utah in January 2017. We rarely get winter weather in Austin, and snow was high on my adult children’s wish list. There is a point when they don’t really need “stuff” anymore, so we gave them a snowy experience instead!

Frosted Firs Sample Block

The Frosted Firs block can be paper pieced as a 6” block or as a 12” block.

Frosted Firs quilt

Quilt instructions & fabric amounts are included in the document to make the 46″ x 64″ quilt shown here. Quilt layout uses the 12″ version of the block.

holiday house

Bonus updated version of  Holiday House to mix & match with Frosted Firs.

table runners

Frosted Firs is a very versatile block and can be mixed & matched any way you choose for a variety of fun wintery finishes!

The pattern includes a 6″ & 12″ pattern for Frosted Firs, quilt instructions for a 46″ x 64″ quilt using the 12″ pattern, a coloring page, more idea suggestions, and an updated version of Holiday House as a bonus. The complete pattern is $4.95 and is available on either Craftsy or Etsy.

Free Pattern Friday – Holiday House 2017

free-pattern-friday

Welcome back to Free Pattern Friday!

After a week away from Free Pattern Friday for charity work, I’m back with a fun favorite, Holiday House!

Holiday House was first shared as part of a blog hop back in 2011. I’ve updated the pattern for 2017, adding a 10″ version for your piecing pleasure!

I can’t help but think that Holiday House would make a fantastic block swap!

Even with a single block repeating, Holiday House would make such a fun quilt!
