Pattern Updates Released

Pat1818 February 12th, 2011 by Pat1818 | No Comments | Filed in Releases

The pattern section received a major facelift.

Besides the visual changes there are structural changes as well. Patterns can now be organized by the book, magazine, or website they came from.

Each book, magazine, and website has it’s own page, with references back to each pattern and even each project.

Considering a new magazine or book? Interested in one of the patterns? Search My Sewing Circle to find the pattern and see what projects others have made with it.


Designers now have their own page as well. See all patterns & projects from that designer’s patterns.

There are major bug fixes for Internet Explorer included in this release. The collapsing forum problem is fixed as well as many other alignment problems. Thanks to everyone for providing input to help make these fixes possible.
