A note from Brenda: I’ve been a fixture at CreativFest over the past few years, so pre-2017 blogs are gathered here into a single post. They appear in reverse chronological order, going back to Spring 2012.
Fun At Festival
April 29, 2015
I’ve just returned from CreativFestival in Mississauga, Ontario this past weekend. Kathy, my sister-in-law accompanied me and we had a great time meeting with many of our past customers while making connections with new customers. One of the things I like to do at shows is encourage everyone to subscribe to my newsletter called The Scratching Post. You’ll see the newsletter subscription button along the right hand column on this page. If you are a shop, subscribe to the Wholesale newsletter, otherwise subscribe to the retail newsletter. We’ve got a brand new pattern in The Scratching Post for a Cross-body Phone Bag. Be sure to subscribe and start sewing this new bag!

CreativFestival Spring 2012
May 1, 2012
I’m just back from my first stint at CreativFestival in Toronto, Ontario, Canada where I met a lot of you for the very first time. It was great to be there so those of you I hadn’t met could finally put a face to my pattern name. Family member Eilene Patterson came along to help out during the show. Thanks go out to Eilene for her hard work and to all of you who came and checked out my patterns!
See you there!
