First of all…
Happy Canada Day!!!

All of the fireworks are not just for Canada Day today, but also for 2 other amazing events happening today!

What's to celebrate?
1) My Manhattan Bag pattern's public release.
2) A New Website Launch Contest… and Grand Opening of sorts for the "new"

New Pattern Release!

Let's get into the Manhattan Bag pattern first.  The Manhattan Bag has been an exclusive pattern in the Bag of the Month Club since April, 2015, but will now be available to the public as of July 1st.

It has been so well received and I've seen so many, many gorgeous bags made from this pattern so far. The pattern instructions include directions for 2 sizes, plus a removable eyeglass case.

You can read all about the pattern and it's features on a blog post HERE and find it in either a PDF  (July 1st) or Paper version (after July 10th) on my website HERE.

I have also released a FREE tutorial to make a cute and handy zippered case that will fit in the bag flap of the Mamma size. You can find that tutorial HERE.

Please share all of your Manhattan Bag pictures in the Emmaline Sewing Patterns Group on Facebook, or hashtag them with #ebmanhattanbag & #ebmanhattancase on Instagram!!

New Website Launch Contest for the 

As many of you know from either visiting the shop or me announcing on Facebook, I have launched a new website (at the same address) at  It was time to get some new features that will make your shopping experience much more enjoyable.

New Features:

  • The filters make it easy to sort so you can find your product type, finish & size quick and easy. 
  • You can now create accounts so that you will be able to check out faster without adding shipping information. (There were no accounts on the old website.)
  • Your previous purchases are saved in your account, so that you can access your previous downloads and orders. 
  • You can choose one of several currencies so that you can view prices in your own currency.

  • You can link up your Instagram pictures and share your photos on the bottom of selected products. 
  • You can download your PDF patterns straight to your Dropbox!

Wish list:

  • I hope to soon improve the product images so that when you click on them, they will enlarge. 
  • Wholesaler information and accounts will be added for small businesses and brick and mortar quilt shops.
