Version 2.1 for Haiti

For the past few weeks, I have been working closely with my graphic designer (who happens to be my good friend Kelly) in preparation of launching an updated version of my French Press Felted Slipper Pattern.

Version 2.1 has a few differences when compared to the original version. First of all, it looks way prettier! Kelly did a great job of making the pattern clean, cohesive, and aesthetically pleasing- it sure beats my Microsoft Word graphics(can we even call them graphics?).

I have been listening to customers to find out what you all would like to see in the pattern and what areas have been unclear. Much time was spent on the forums at the new French Press Knits group on Ravelry and I got to work. Although, due to space constraints, I couldn't include every suggestion given, I did my best to clarify and add helpful information.

I posted the new pattern on Ravelry today, and when I did, I checked the box to notify past customers of the update. Because I have not been on Ravelry that long, I am not quite sure how this works. I'm hoping that past customers will automatically be able to download the updated version. If this is not the case, please let me know.

Also, if you have bought the pattern on Etsy and would like the updated version, just shoot me an email with the last name on the Paypal account and the approximate date of sale.

Finally, from now until the end of the month, half of all proceeds from pattern sales will go to World Vision's Haiti Earthquake Relief Fund. World Vision has worked in Haiti for 30 years and has more than 800 staff on the ground. Your gift will help them meet the immediate, urgent needs of earthquake survivors, and also enable World Vision to help the people of Haiti in the weeks and months to come. Please join us in praying for the children and families devastated by the earthquake in Haiti. Read more at http://www.worldvision.org

If you haven't had a chance to buy the French Press Felted Slipper Pattern or Breckenridge Cowl Pattern, there has never been a better time to buy!
