Farewell 2019!

What a blast 2019 was! We had an amazing year!

We released two new patterns - The Ring Sling and The Bowler Bag, got to meet lots of our lovely UK bagineers at The Festival of Quilts, had two seasons of The Bag of the Month Club, and three sets of The Bag Retreat! Wow! Thank you all for being there for all the fun with us!

What's coming for 2020?

It's new pattern time!

The Crossbody Bag, The Loopy Lou, and The Side Hustle
