Getting my patterns printed has been the plan since the spring of 2009 when I wrote my first official pattern: Teardrop Hearts
I would include a picture of the pattern but I am still in Pennsylvania and without my computer. You can see the pattern if you click on the shop tab above and scroll down.
I spent 2011 writing one tutorial and one sewing tip every week and posting them here! I also wrote one new pattern per month. I ended 2011 successfully with 52 new sewing tutorials and tips! Plus, I wrote 12 new patterns!
If I met all of my 2011 goals, the plan was for me to get all of my patterns printed and into stores. Achieving my dreams of seeing my patterns being sold worldwide.
Since the start of this year I have been contacting people and planning for my patterns going to print. Only this year has been truly daunting. If you aren't sure of all that's gone on, take a look at these two posts for a bit of an update:
With everything that happened, the time for my patterns to get printed was set back. We also used up all of the money we had saved towards getting them printed.
There is no way for me to move forward now, not without help. So, I launched a fundraising page on Indiegogo. I am officially asking for help. If you can help, any amount you can give would be greatly appreciated! If not, then please just share my page. Spreading the word by sharing the page and my story can help too!
Every little bit adds up and there is no way I can do this alone!

Thank you for any help you can give whether it be financially or by spreading the word, I am truly full of gratitude for anything you can do.
