TRYING really hard this year to get back on the “regular blogging” train. Sunday Lately is so fun and I will be posting weekly (hopefully) 🙂
This week’s themes: Updating, Remembering, Needing, Wearing, Being
We have recently finished updating the Samantha Suspender Skirt Pattern. It is one of my top sellers, so sweet and quick to sew up. The update will be sent out this week to those who already purchased. We updated the fabric requirement chart, added how to enclose the waistband seam (blog post here too!) AND we have formatted the tutorial the same as all our new patterns. Catherine will be hosting a Samantha skirt sew-a-long this month in the fb group with FREE add on’s…. OH SO CUTE!! Can’t wait to show you, you will LOVE them!
We have been using a M4M team calendar- pretesting, testing, release dates, blog post, etc. all scheduled and on the calendar. I always wrote in my own planner, but having one for our entire team keeps me more accountable. It has REALLY helped me stay on track. I am remembering and reminded what I should be working on and not getting AS distracted…. never mind it’s only 10 days into year… so far, on track 😉 SO PROUD, because punctuality in general is not my strong point. I way too OFTEN want to get a pattern out, start the process and then it’s too late in the season and end up with it “on the shelf”. Hoping to get out of the habit this year.
Needing LESS than 400 members until we hit the 10,000 member mark in our M4M facebook group! WHAT?!? So crazy exciting. The best part of the group is everyone is SO helpful, kind and inspiring. We will be having a BIG, exciting celebration once we hit that milestone.
Ohhhh we have one new M4M mama pattern in testing and one in pretesting this week. I have been wearing the new Mama Mya nonstop; it is just the perfect for ‘everyday’ wear. MAYBE look for a sneak peek on instagram or in the fb group this week 😉 I also have been LOVING my sister Judy’s, Patterns for Pirates, new and updated women’s patterns, she always gets it right!
EXCITED! We have been working on so many things behind the scenes here at M4M. New patterns, sew a longs, our first upcoming collaborative M4M team pattern COLLECTION (it will be out late Spring)! It is all so exciting and inspiring. I’m getting patterns crossed off my list that have been there WAY too long, our M4M calendar is filling up quick and I love it 🙂
