eNews for our Wholesale Customers
Hello & welcome!

So... we have just concluded our 15th cycle of Purse Pattern Chronicles and that means that today we are releasing our brand new pattern for Fall 2017, the Flaptastic Bag! And just in case you're unfamiliar with this series or if you by chance missed a post, we've included them all below!
The Flaptastic Bag is a modern-day take on an old-fashioned messenger bag. It includes a full bag-width front exterior pocket with 12 built-in slots for credit/loyalty cards & LOTS of extra room for your smart phone, keys, sunglasses or other items you want quick access to! And don't worry, this pocket is secured with it's own flap (complete with a sew-in magnet closure).
This Flaptastic Bag is sized to safely accomodate your iPad & the extra-wide adjustable shoulder strap will allow you to carry comfortably! The main compartment flap conceals a zippered closure.
As usual, our patterns are carried by the following distributors; Checker, Brewer, & United Notions. But please remember that we love dealing directly with our wholesale customers if you prefer that!
