Holiday Motivation

Instead of what is becoming my usual Monday Motivation post, today I bring you holiday motivation in honor of Thanksgiving here in the US! The best part of this post may be the Thanksgiving, Black Friday, Small Business Saturday and Cyber Monday sales I found! I’m off to Disney on Sunday so it also seemed fitting to share my motivation early.


Megan Nielsen is having a sale through Sunday on all women’s and maternity sewing patterns. Take 30% off with code BLACKFRIDAY at checkout.

Papercut Patterns are having a 3 day sale on their website for 30% off patterns. The sale is valid through Saturday the 28th New Zealand time. Use code “flash” at checkout. I adore my Milano cape and I think everyone should have one!

Deer & Doe is offering 20% off their patterns on Black Friday. The sale will be going live Friday morning with no coupon code given in the email I was sent.

It looks like all classes and kits from Craftsy are on sale. Go see if a class you’ve been wanting to take or a kit with some fabric you love is on sale is having a pre Black Friday sale offering up to 60% off. I believe the sale ends on Thanksgiving so act fast.

Britex is having an in store sale on Black Friday and a Cyber Monday sale for those of us not in the San Francisco area. Both sales are 30% off everything! Learn more on their blog.


Grey’s Fabric is having an in store sale Friday-Sunday for 20% off fabric and 25% off machines. They are also doing a cyber Monday sale with code “handturkey” for 20% off your online order.

Girl Charlee is offering up to 75% off select fabrics from today until Sunday. New deals are constantly being added so go check them out! You can find more detailed information about their sale on their blog.

There has still not been confirmation of the 50% fabric from Pendleton on Black Friday that I read a rumor about, but I am holding out hope!

Joann’s has a lot of door buster items in store and online, but the one that jumped out at me was the $99 Singer dressform. I have the same one in a different color and it works pretty well. They are also offering discounted and free shipping with code “THANKS60”.

Blackbird Fabrics is offering 15% off all coating until Friday. Use code “coatlove” until midnight PST.

Are there more sales that I missed? Add them in the comments section!


Anna Graham from Noodlehead was on the Modern Sewciety podcast recently and I loved listening to that chat! Felice Regina was on the same episode and her story about how she became a fabric designer for Windham gave me chills. Go listen for yourself! 

Anna Maria Horner has lived a very interested and artistic life. If she doesn’t motivate or inspire you in her chat with Sandy of the Crafty Planner podcast than I don’t know what will!

While you’re listening to crafty planner listen to Sandi’s interview with Sarai of Colette. I listen to seam work radio and it’s interesting to hear Sarai on the other side of the microphone.




I’m off to Disney on Sunday for 6 days of fun in the sun! I got so wrapped up in my arithmetic quilt that I didn’t make any of the garments I had planned and guess what? That’s okay! I’m sure I will still have a great time, despite not wearing brand new me-mades. I do hope to get pictures of some recent me-mades while I’m down there so I can blog about them soon.
