The Sling Along pattern and webpage is finally ready for release to the public!

PLUS--- If you use this discount code - SLINGIT0618 - you'll get $2.99 off the retail price of either the Sling Along pattern -OR- the "Sling Along Pattern PLUS Build-a-Notions Kit"!  BUT DON'T DELAY!!!! This coupon will expire at midnight on 6/28/18... before we release it to the general public on Instagram, Pinterest and our regular FaceBook page the 29th!
A NEW SnapHook Size!
Our new Sling Along pattern calls for a 1.5" wide Snap Hook and so of course we've added this handy piece of hardware to our growing product line. We'll be stocking it in two colors for now, gold and silver and I think you'll find that this convenient size is on the supply list for many other bag patterns you may enjoy using as well!

The StudioKat Designs Group page (on FaceBook)
So.... back in January of this year we started a private FaceBook page for our customers and it's been growing steadily since then. If you're already a member, thank you very much and if you aren't a member yet, I guess the obvious question is.... why?

Here's THREE good reasons to join us there!
1- Facebook recently changed their algorithym AGAIN, and the result was and still is that many of you just aren't seeing our posts on a regular basis anymore. So... we created this closed and private group for customers who follow us. This means that only those who are granted access to our group will see our posts, AND, because our members have joined our group by choice, they will automatically see ALL of our posts. No more missing a blog post or a discount code for YOU!

2- YOU get the opportunity to post pictures on this page! How cool is that, right? Maybe you've just completed a bag and just want to share it with someone! You could show it to your hubby or your neighbor, but let's face it, they very likely don't understand the work or the love you've put into it! But what if you could upload a picture and voila... could get immediate accolades? Would that be awesome?
3- YOU get the opportunity to post a question and get an almost immediate response from experienced sewists just like YOU! Because let's face it, you might be in the midst of sewing and have a question about a step or a supply item? You could email me, but it might be after hours, or I could be away from home or out of the country and unavailable to answer the question! But now you can pose the question without having to wait until I'm available!  Wouldn't that be great?
So... does this mean we're abandoning our old FaceBook page? Not at all!             How could we ever turn our back on 196,000+ loyal followers? But out of necessity we do feel its time to change some of our emphasis to a platform where we can be sure our message is actually heard! We'll continue to post on our FaceBook business page... though definitely not as often as we once did. Our Wednesday videos will still be there and we'll still post announcements & specials there, but if you want to be sure to actually SEE all of those things, I would suggest you give our new FaceBook group page a try! 
So... are you ready to give it a whirl?
Just click HERE to give our new group a try. You'll need to answer two quick questions for me (to prove you're neither a bot or a stalker) but I promise I'll approve your request as soon as possible! And thanks in advance for your understanding! Please feel free to email us with any questions you might have at info@studiokatdesigns.com
