Email sent to our web customers October 2008

Dear Crafters

Many of you will have seen Blushing Romeo , our pink Zebra quilt. After taking the craft shows by storm he is now available through The Pattern Place web store at a special introductory rate. Included in the offer is the boxed Zebra Crossing pattern and a colour pack of your choice, (Pink, Blue, Purple, Green or mixed packs) so you can make your own colourful Zebra! Visit www to view on our web site.

Our original black and white Zebra Crossing fabric kit has also been reduced to a very special price of $69.00 for web shoppers. This kit includes all of the fabrics for the front of the quilt, including the borders, as well as the pattern in our trademark pattern box. There is limited stock so this offer will be for a limited time. We are not planning to remake these kits so get in early to avoid disappointment, once sold out they will not be re-offered.

The Zebra would make a great gift, made up if you have the time, or why not give the project kit to a crafty friend so they can enjoy stitching him for them selves.

WORKSHOP UPDATE - I have arranged a hands on workshop in conjunction with the Craft and Quilt Fair in Brisbane on October 23rd. You will make either a small zebra, giraffe or elephant wall hanging ready for stitching. For further information and enrolment visit our web site and follow the links. This is a fun class and I do hope you will be able to join us.

There is also a possibility of organising a similar workshop in Adelaide between the 6 - 8 November however I need a 'show of hands' to get this running so if you are interested please let me know asap on

Happy crafting and best wishes,

from Susan .

Welcome to your Pattern Place Blog

Hi everyone and welcome to my very first blog - ever !!!

I feel quite proud to have managed to navigate my way around the web to set up this blog page for all of us in The Pattern Place community to use.

We would like to use this space to let you know what is happening here in the studio and to share tips, tricks and new ideas from the craft world.
New patterns will be released here first so you get to see what's coming as well as the new things we will be offering in our web store and on our stand at the craft shows.
Also I would like to post photo's of creative ideas and new ways our patterns and products have been used to inspire you and give you some new and fresh ideas.

You are welcome to use this space to comment on my blogs and post your own ideas so we can start to get to know each other and begin to come together as a community. If you would like to write a few words simply click on the comment link at the end of this post.

If you would like to receive an email when ever I post new information click on the Subscribe to: Post link at the bottom of the page. This will be about every two - four weeks and it would be a great way to stay in touch with new releases, special offers and updated news.

I can't wait to get started and I hope to hear from you soon.

So here's to new friends, happy times and lots of stitching. Susan.
