Just let me have a little gush for a minute… I’d like to extend a personal, heartfelt thank you to each and every one of you who voted for us.

As a small business, we may not have the biggest budget in the world, but we put so much care and attention into creating inspiring and accessible sewing resources – so it feels amazing to have our hard work recognised by winning three national awards.

And having the support of such creative, generous and thoughtful readers and customers who voted for us means the world to me and to my team. We really do have the best customers in the world!

Thank you sooooo much!

If that wasn’t exciting enough, we have a stunning new sewing pattern launching next week. Stay tuned...

  1. That's Awesome, congratulationsūüéČūüéČ

  2. Congratulations! What an achievement :-)

  3. Congratulations Tilly. I just picked up one of your patterns from Patternreview and I am so impressed with it. I will be buying more - especially the new Zadie dress. I am wondering if you plan to offer neckline variations for the Martha? It is such a beautiful dress and I think an add-on pack of a few variations (for $5-8) would really be great.

    1. Thanks so much for your feedback - I'm so pleased to hear you are impressed with our patterns. That's a great idea to add neckline variations to the Martha dress. What kinds of necklines would you like to see?

    2. Oh I would love it if you would consider making an add-on package. I love bias cut dresses - they are so luxurious. If I had my wish, I would love to see a v neck, boat neck and scoop neck option and maybe even some sort of collar as if it were a button down. I just love the Rosa pattern I bought on a whim on patternreview and I am looking to pick up the Orla this week. I love finding new pattern companies with well-made patterns!

  4. Congratulations Tilly and the rest of the game. It's a great achievement for a small business. What a boon. Looking forward to seeing the new pattern x
