I hope your final days of 2018 have been restful, peaceful and were full of time to sew! We are so grateful for the many sewists who sew their Christmas gifts using Thread Theory patterns and for the enthusiastic support that you show for our little business all year long! Thank you!
This year has been filled with many highlights for both Thread Theory and Matt and I in our personal life.
We’ve launched four menswear patterns:
Our baby, Noah, was born:
And we’ve had the privilege to see our patterns sewn into many absolutely stunning garments!
From left to right:
- Finlayson Sweater sewn by Jocelyn Buggie for her brother’s Christmas gift and shared on the Thread Theory Sewing Community Facebook page.
- Another Finlayson sewn by Kayla Kissane for her uncle as a Christmas gift and shared on the Facebook community page.
- A paisley Fairfield Button-up sewn by James Nacy and shared on the Facebook page – he altered the collar to become a large 70’s style one to suit his fabric choice.
- A Goldstream Peacoat sewn by Léa Provost for her father’s Christmas gift and shared via email.
Matt and I are so excited for the coming year. We have a nice collection of patterns already drafted so that I can delve into instruction writing once little Noah and I have settled into a routine (we are getting close…as you can probably tell because I’ve actually managed to write a couple of blog posts lately!). Since last year’s wallet patterns were such a success, the first pattern on my list to write instructions for is a bag. Instead of a quick bag making project (as our wallets are), this is an involved project which is a lot of fun to sew! I look forward to sharing the MANY features with you when the pattern is ready!
The rest of the waiting patterns are garments…but I won’t give away any hints about those yet 😀
Happy New Year!
