Here in Louisiana, Lagniappe is that little something extra. That’s exactly what I found in my email inbox yesterday!
Being in the United States, shipping costs can be a bit dear when ordering. If that has stopped you from ordering a Marfy pattern in the past, this is a great opportunity.
Marfy patterns are cut without seam allowance. Although I learned to sew using the seam allowance as most US patterns are drafted, I recently moved towards marking the seam instead and have found it really works well. It is becoming my favorite way of marking fabric to sew. I love that I can leave extra fabric in the seam allowance in those problem areas. If an adjustment is needed, I know I have that extra fabric there to play with.
Also, another note on shipping costs. I recently ordered a catalog and three patterns from Marfy. The shipping cost on the catalog is just as expensive as the catalog itself. By combining the catalog and patterns, you can save on the shipping cost of the patterns. And the catalog always includes free patterns which is pretty awesome.
So jump over to Marfy and sign up for the newsletter. You can then take advantage of these great patterns and fall in love with Marfy yourself.
Just curious … which is your favorite pattern maker? and why? I have always been a Vogue girl myself, but I am falling pretty hard for Marfy.
