We are very excited to announce these new features that are available now!

Designer members are now able to link their member accounts with their designer page.


  • Renamed “projects” link to “projects & designers" for improved navigation
  • Added "I am" button on designer page to allow member to link to their design page, patterns, and sources
  • Once linked the designer member will have access to edit designer page and associated patterns
  • Added designer links to member "about me" page
  • Enhanced designer page to allow picture upload/management
  • Added ability to add designers to list of favorites
  • Included special enhancements specific for content editors to assist with managing/monitoring designer/member relationships

We created a brand new project design board, which allows you to start creating a project by designing with fabrics.

From “my sewing room”, select your projects page. You’ll see a link to launch the design board:


Pull in fabrics using the search dialog, move them around, remove them.


When you have the fabrics you want just click “create project”.

Hope you enjoy these new features!

Government Censorship?

Normally we wouldn’t find ourselves caught up in anything political but proposed legislation PIPA and SOPA could impact sites like My Sewing Circle, Ravelry, Facebook, Twitter, etc. directly.
