I want to start out by saying that at Folkwear, we are incredibly grateful for our amazing customers! Year after year, for over 40 years, people have been using Folkwear patterns to make clothing (from everyday wear to fancy dress), costumes for theater and movies, reenactments, and to connect with their cultures. From very simple garments to complex and intricately embroidered clothes, we are honored to be a part of all of these sewing adventures. And delighted by our Folkwear fans. Thank you for your support of this small business.
I always like to give our customers a little glimpse into the last year and what we accomplished (and remind us here at Folkwear). I am glad to be carrying this company on into the future.
New Pattern Releases
Patterns Re-released. These are generally patterns that Folkwear used to publish, that we brought back in a larger size range, but there are a few that were only PDF patterns for the last few years and now are available as paper patterns too!
PDF patterns released (we often up-sized these PDF patterns if the original range was small).
There were so many blog posts with amazing sewing tutorials and how-to's, histories, and garments that we made, but I'll list a few highlights below.
We also updated our website this summer. And I spent a month in England with my children. Living and working there was so very good for us and I hope to find a similar option this summer as well. I love that Folkwear allows me to travel and is a job I can often do while away.
We will now spend time over the next several weeks planning for 2023. We will likely have a few new patterns out, and will continue to develop PDF patterns, as well as provide tutorials and sew alongs for our patterns. We will also likely expand our fabric selection. We would love to hear from you! What would you like to see Folkwear do in the coming year? What patterns? What products? What tutorials or sewing information would you like us to have?
