Yay! I want to see these so bad! *laughs* They seem like they would be super cute!

did you see 'em at FC? I know there was one fellow who ran around in his red fox jammies for most of the weekend...

anyway we will be doing a photoshoot in the not too distant future, so you'll be able to see 'em on the site after tha.

It gives me a tingle (the good kind!) to see all your pattern pieces hung in a row from their little pattern hooks. . . makes me want to get busy on my own sewing projects : )

thank you! and a big YES to sewing projects! I love your work.

we will be at Wondercon, in SF at Moscone Center on the last weekend in February!

if you'll be there too it would be great to see you.

very cool. (And so organized!)

What do you make your patterns on, out of curiosity? The color makes it look like tracing paper but I figure it has to be something more durable. (I've been using tagboard sheets, myself. Not ideal but they work.)

we get oak tag on a roll. I can't imagine using anything else for the bigger pieces! (it is also the industry standard, and it never hurts to look like you know what you're doing.)

we order the stuff from LA and they UPS it to us. let me know if you want the contact info. they also have the "dot paper" for drafting, and brown kraft paper for making edits, the oak tag is just for the final draft (and for production patterns).

Definitely interested. I've been looking for something that'd store a bit better than the tagboard.

What's the price on it? And how much is in a roll, which I assume is the smallest quantity you can buy it in?

Atlas-Levy in LA is the place. price depends on how much you are getting. I think you'll love using this stuff - it really helps us.


hope this helps! we also work with a company called PGM Pro for things like pattern hooks, pattern weights, bunny punch etc.
