A huge THANK YOU, a HUGE announcement, and a smaller announcement

First of all, thank you so much for all the support you've shown Go To Patterns.

I've been overwhelmed by the response to my little shop with it's one little girl dress pattern. Thank you to all of you who have purchased a pattern, blogged about the pattern, liked it on facebook, followed on twitter or uploaded your photos to flickr. My pattern would be nowhere without all of you! 

Because of you, I was able to donate all the profit from the first 100 patterns to my daughters' fundraiser for World Vision

Guess what! They're only $400 away from raising their goal of $5,100! So amazing! You can read a little about what they've been doing at Heart & Felt. They've got a few more lemonade stands and bake sales planned to finish their fundraising. I'll keep you posted!

Did you know you can become an affiliate for Go To Patterns?

Sign up here to earn a commission on any sales you send to Go To Patterns from your blog, newsletter, etc. It is easy to sign up then all you need to do is add a link to a post about the shop or put a button in your sidebar. Through the end of July all commissions are doubled! AND, if you refer people to sign up for the affiliate program you earn a commission on all their sales as well. What's not to love?

Now for the announcement…

Go To Patterns is now accepting patterns from designers like YOU! The first Go To Patterns family member joined this week and I'm so happy to announce Bev from Flamingo Toes is now selling patterns in the shop! Check out her first pattern we are selling. Check out her blog too!

The Rebecca Shoulder Bag PDF Pattern isI adorable and the instructions are fabulous! Go get yourself this fun ruffle purse pattern today! Then blog about it and maybe earn a little commission! (wink)

Do you sell sewing patterns and are ready to get out of the business side of opperations? Want to just make patterns and get paid without the fuss of emails, websites, paypal, etsy and sales tax? Contact me to learn the process for submitting a pattern.

That's it! More Go To Signature Dress Pattern Tour next week! Yay! Can't wait to see what they've made!

And finally…

Have you noticed the new digs around here? I gave the blog a makeover and I think it is looking rather fabulous if I do say so myself! For those of you in a reader, here's a screenshot of the front of the blog but there really are a lot of changes so come on by and take a look around.

    All proceeds go to buy fabric… LOL thanks for giving me a chuckle today! I’ve been looking at all the fun dresses created by your pattern. Very impressive! And I’m amazed by your generosity to World Vision. That is so wonderful!

    I love the pattern. I made one dress and hope to make many more for my growing girl in the years to come. How wonderful to hear about the donation!
