Winter Holiday Patterns at Play

Dec. 1
- 2019 -

We are so thankful for our PATTERNS supporters. Your excellent ideas to continually improve PATTERNS are so helpful.  You are making the Membership easier to use and timesaving, too! 

For example, you asked for all designs to be in one assortment as opposed to the “mini-collections” we were offering. The “mini-collections” caused confusion and took precious time to work through to decide what to use. 

Starting with December 2019 – the month now available to purchase and give as gift memberships—all twelve designs are in one easy to see group, flowing from one to the other as you browse the pdf you receive.  I agree it is much easier to use! 

Of course, we left your Secret Surprise – your monthly Thank You Gift – as a separate design. It really needs to remain a surprise, don’t you agree? 

December’s Winter Holiday PATTERNS are all inspired by vintage designs circa 1930-1971. We love them all, especially the pink, red and white poinsettia and coordinating stockings. Did you know it was frowned upon  to use pink and red together until the 1950’s? It was a real faux pas and became all the rage in the 1950’s. 

We hope you enjoy mixing these patterns as they were intended. The conversationals are really “mixers” as are the classic patterns. I can see them all in a jumble on a craft project, maybe découpage,  or in a stack of wrapped packages. 

What more can you make with this playful group of PATTERNS?  Covered boxes, party favors, small bags for table favors or individual baked goods, paper placemats for a casual supper, bookmarks, or packaging for your homemade candles and gifts. 

Need to take care of a gift for the crafters on your list? Did you know we offer PATTERNS Gift Memberships? What a fun gift for your crafting friends and family members!  Your kid’s teacher would appreciate it, too!

It costs $19 for a one month PATTERNS Gift Membership or a full year for only $190  (that’s 2 months free!). 

Thank you, again, for your support of PATTERNS! Have fun with the whimsy of December’s  winter holiday designs. 

With gratitude,
