Good news everyone! As you know there has been a lot of talking about a site redesign and code review. Well, our awesome programmers from Area 17 have just rolled out a major improvement. You will notice that the site is much faster now! We know from reading your survey answers that the speed of the site was a big issue. Slow and steady might win the race but we are happy to announce that turtle speed will no longer hinder your pattern browsing abilities. No more little hourglass while the Sabrina loads, no more failed pages, easier download of all the patterns, can you ask for anything more? Well yes, but that is also coming. It’s all very exciting.

Speaking of very exciting, BurdaStyle is going to the mid west and the west coast! This weekend we are going to be spread out across the country. Nora A will be in Chicago at the American Sewing Guild Conference and Alden and Nora K. will be heading to San Francisco for the Renegade Craft Fair. There will be more information about this in tomorrow’s blog post, but we just couldn’t keep it to ourselves any longer.

Have a great week!
