I hope you have some time now to sit down, put your feet up and enjoy all that you have put out there. Have a great weekend!


Sandi, Congrats on the site. It looks great! I really like the touches of flash. Ordering soon. Keep up the awesome work.


I LOVE that you include the fabric requirements on your site!! That makes it so easy for people like me who want to order the fabric right away after finding a great pattern.

I ordered the Claire from a fabric coop... hope they ship them out soon. :)

Web site looks great my friend! continue on with your fabulousness :)


Congratulations on the release of your patterns! I wish you all the success in the world. I love your designs.



I love your fabric designs, they are so bright and cheerful. Ginger Blossom has become one of my favorites. I can't wait to try some of your patterns as well.



the shop site is really well done. great views on exactly what the patterns require and look like. bravo! the old pattern companies of this world could sure take a lesson from you....go girl!


Yipee!!! You made it!!! We get to see it!!! And I love it!!!!

Hey stranger. Seems like you're keeping yourself busy as usual. I feel like we don't have friends anymore now that school is in the nitty gritty stage...how sad. We totally need to get together when we all have time...impossible right? Well, congrats on getting everything up and going. Have i told you that i'm sooooo utterly amazed by you? Love all the new patterns! I'm still dumbfounded by your pattern signing ...how did it go by the way? Love ya

Great Job with the website. Ordered pattern already. Confused as to knowing if it was in time to get one of the patterns you had in stock (Claire) or if I am on waiting list. No feedback from website or emails sent. Am I missing something? Afraid that I will be frequent shopper of your patterns, they are fantastic on the website, assume they will be even more in person. Anxious..the best to you.

I'm waiting for Pay Day to come around to place my order. I can't wait!

Love your fabric...have used it in a few of my applique patterns and we sell out all the time! Can't wait to see what you have at Market. I'm making a quilt for my daughter's antique iron bed with Farmer's Market....soooo cute. I'll send a pic when I get it quilted.


It is always such a thrill to see that you have stopped by my blog! As for the crockpot applesauce, I merely googled it and made the first one that popped up. Super easy and so yummy. :)

Sandi - Your new site is absolutely gorgeous! FYI - the message after returning ot your site is this: "This page requires AC_RunActiveContent.js." I was still able to see your site without any other issues, though, so no big deal!
As I commented in my web order - keep those scrumptious fabrics, patterns (and your surprises!!)coming. I looove them!


Hey the website looks great and from what I've been hearing you have been really successful if you guys need anything let me know I usually can't help with doing anything cause with my kids I end up bringing more problems but if you and Dustin need kid releif for a few hours I can help with that! Congrats!

I got my order yesterday! Thanks so much!!!

I wondered a couple things...Since I have 4 girls ranging in ages of 3 mo. - 9 years I'll want to use all the sizes in the patterns at various times. So what would you reccommend is the best way to copy/transfer each size into individual pieces?

And unless the info is written on the pattern itself (which I haven't opened yet), I didn't see directions on what length to sew the seams. I know standard comercial patterns are 5/8" is that the case with your patterns?

Thanks, :)

Sandi Henderson

Hi Brandi!

Glad you received your order. :) The seam allowances and other info is on the back inside page. The seam allowance for my patterns is 1/2 inch. I recommend just marking through the pattern with a pencil or pen right onto the fabric. I make dots every 3-4 inches and then remove the pattern and cut it right out. The pattern paper is thick enough that it won't fall apart from this kind of use!



I just received my patterns in the mail!!!!! Yeah! I am so excited thanks so much Sandy. Great service. I'm going to try them and see how I do then I may be back for more.(hehe) They are so beautiful and I love how the book came with them showing you step by step. So you see exactly what to do. I would recommend you to anyone. You are such a wonderful designer. Well worth the money.

Hey Sandi, I got my patterns yesterday and I can't wait to make them. They look wonderful and worth the wait. Thanks also for the freebie. You are the best.
