Newsletter Archives : A New Design Space for Christmas

Greetings and best wishes from our new location!

Many of you know that we made a big move to a little island this fall.

new design space in Sointula

Here is a photo of my new design space in Sointula.

It is a one-room rustic cottage with loft that faces the sea. With a wood stove for warmth and the fragrance of cedar my mind is in a calm, creative space as soon as I enter.

I am truly blessed to have such a lovely place to work from.

Where is Sointula?

Sointula is on Malcom Island (population 800) located off the northeastern tip of Vancouver Island on the Pacific West Coast of British Columbia.

This is an old community originally settled by the Finns as a place of new life and harmony.

It is now populated by their descendants and newcomers like myself - artists, writers, fishermen, loggers and ecologists.

In keeping with the creative spirit, our web site has been redesigned!

Many of you asked for a more convenient method of shopping.

I'm very pleased to announce that you can now place your orders at any time of day using our online shopping carts.

Please take a look at the redesigned site. Heather did a wonderful job. And, we've added some free things to take away when you visit.

Free Things on the Web Site

A Pattern Extender is a one-page lesson that shows you how to make more from our basic patterns. You can learn a new technique and have some fun with a pattern that is already tried and true.

Choose one or all of these Pattern Extenders.
There are five to choose from - Frilled Collar, Convertible Collar, Frilly Sleeve, Lengthening a Short Sleeve and Add Buttons to Zip Front Vest.

Simply go to our site, click on Pattern Extenders on the Catalogue menu and follow the instructions.

The Christmas season is almost upon us.

All of us at Petite Plus Patterns send wishes that the season will be a very happy time for you and yours!
