Virginia from Gingercake, is here to share her adorable pattern shop with us and to announce an AWESOME giveaway just in time for holiday gift making. You may remember her from the lovely Scrappy Pumpkin Tutorial. Take it away Virginia…
Hi! I am Virginia Lindsay, creator of Gingercake Patterns. I started sewing again (like many of you!) when my kids were new and I was spending more time at home while they were napping and playing. I loved all the bright and beautiful fabrics available and I became addicted to searching for new projects all the time! I eventually found myself with many ideas of my own and I loved the process of taking that idea and turning it into a perfected pattern. I wanted to create items that were useful and thoughtful for our busy lives. Since most of us already have an almost full schedule, a day spent sewing is such a treat and I wanted to create a line of patterns would be a treat for the sewer and the person she is sewing for. For sewers, searching for that perfect pattern is like shopping at the mall for other women (we shop at the mall too!)~ we get to think about who we are sewing for, what fabric combinations we are going to use, and always ask ourselves, are they really going to use this? You don’t want to waste your precious sewing time on something that isn’t going to be cute and useful! My favorite feedback from people who bought a Gingercake pattern is not only “we use this all the time!” but also, “i had so much fun making this!” We all know that we can buy something cute at the big box store, but creating a handmade gift is not only about who is getting the gift but about how much you enjoyed your time spent sewing!
This giveaway is for the entire collection of Gingercake Patterns. This will keep you busy well past the holidays! In this collection you will find cute and stylish patterns for moms, kids, and everyone else on your list. Enjoy your sewing!
