Whew! I shipped out 104 Pavlova Wrap Top & Skirt Patterns this morning. I’m so thrilled she’s on her way to you!
Yesterday I showed you our cheery fun pre-sale envelopes. We decided to also place the envelopes in a mailer, lest the greeting card envelope fail to protect your pattern in transit.
I took some time this afternoon to set up our digital shared sewing space on Flickr for the Pavlova 30 Minutes A Day Sewalong. The colored envelopes are a way to connect Cake sewists at random, sorting us into “houses” during the sewalong which is from March 15-25. Each house has a discussion thread in the Flickr page, check it out. There’s a little prize for the winning house…
I had tentatively set the start date for the 10th, but I want to make sure we leave enough time for everyone’s patterns to catch up with them. The 15th seems a safer bet, don’t you think?
I also took the time to set up our Pavlova 30 Minutes A Day sewingcake.com page, where I’ll post the links to each day’s lesson. The code for the blog badges can be found there, too, as well as the sewalong outline.
You’ll also find some Flickr user tutorials on sewingcake.com, too. I hope that helps, I know technology can be really frustrating sometimes!
