What to expect
Today kicks off the tour, so check the schedule near the bottom of this post for all the dates and links you need to follow along. We'll be sewing garments, bags, and even a quilt. Learn about some Canadian pattern designers, shops, and other Canadian sewing talent.
I've rounded up some fabulous discounts just for the tour and I hope it will give you a chance to try out some new to you Canadian shops (or revisit some favourites). Please visit my Sales Tab for all the details. Thank you so much to all the great shops who offered discounts for our readers.
I wrote about one of Janelle MacKay's patterns from the book she co-authored On The Go Bags. Here's a sneak peek for now, but you'll have to wait until June 27th to see more. There's a discount for anything at the publisher site C&T Publishing so you can get the book, either hard copy or ebook at 20% off, plus anything else they carry with code CANADA until July 5, 2016
Of course we can't forget prizes! In fact, there are so many, they've been split up into prize bundles giving you more chances to win. A special thank you to our sponsors who contributed prizes. Prizes up for grabs include: FQ bundle from Flare Fabrics, $25 Emmaline store credit, FQ bundle from Camelot Fabrics, $25 Tangled Blossoms Design store credit, and patterns from these designers you'll learn more about over the coming days: Carla's Creations, Thread Riding Hood, On The Cutting Floor, Jalie, StitchArt, Blue Calla, Pollywoggles and Libs Elliott.
