Handy answers to frequently asked questions.
Where can I find <insert pattern number / description here>?
That’s a good question; your favourite search engine can help you answer it.
Can you help me find it?
No. But if it’s for sale in my Etsy shop, you can buy it there.

No. Comments soliciting patterns will not be posted.
I have a pattern for sale that I think your readers would be interested in. Can I post about this in the comments?
No. Comments containing advertising will be deleted.
Do you purchase pattern lots?
Yes, selectively. Email me to discuss.
If I really, really, really want a pattern that you blog about, will you trace the pieces and post them?
What if I paid you to do that?
Do you copy patterns and sell them?
Will you sew something for me?
No. (Unless I know you outside offline. In which case: maybe.)
Can you recommend some GTA fabric stores?
Sure. When I lived in Parkdale, I used to shop at Designer Fabrics and the workroom, as well as King Textiles and Leather & Sewing Supply Depot. The Toronto garment district is around and west of Queen Street West and Spadina, towards Augusta. And I hear the Fabric Room has luxurious stuff (by appointment only).
