The latest NEWS from PatternBee Headquarters as of March 2020::

 

NEW PATTERNBEE LOGO . . .

Over the years the PatternBee logo has morphed along with my ever-changing venues and like a well-worn hat--it was due for an update.  I think the new look is "the bees knees". 

 

PATTERN ENVELOPES HAVE CHANGED . . .

For a number of reasons, I decided to make a change to the packaging of my embroidery patterns. This is noteworthy because for over 20 years it has been done only one way; with patterns tucked inside a crisp white envelope and pattern images printed on the cover.  So naturally, any change made at this point is bound to be noticed by all my wonderful long-time customers--and I should explain.  In an effort to simplify my process, I have done away with the printed envelope all together.  I now provide a clear cellophane envelope with the pattern name and images printed on a paper insert instead.  This change has also allowed me to eliminate the upkeep and expense of running a fourth printer--one that was used just for envelopes.  Another benefit is that the reduced shipping weight allows postage costs to remain the same despite rising rates.  And of course, less packaging is good for the planet.  It's all good and I hope you like the new format as much as I do!

 

PATTERNBEE EMBROIDERY Etsy Shop . . .

In December 2019, I opened PatternBee Embroidery a small side-shop on Etsy.  (This is in addition to MeadowSweet WorkShop where I mainly sell my handmade items, collectibles and crafting/sewing resources.)  My offerings on Etsy vary.  I welcome you to stop in and have a look around when you are in the Etsy neighborhood!
