Retirement Announcement!

After having a conversation last night*, I realized my original Quilted Winter Hood Pattern is now a decade old.

Wow! Time flies.

My first Quilted Winter Hood Pattern was the first pattern I released publicaly. Initially published in print form in 2011, this winter hood got me through a very difficult time. I wrote the pattern while we were “living” on an air mattress in a spare room filled with boxes. The winter hoods I created using this pattern literally paid the bills and got us through. Beyond the financial aspects, this winter hood kept me connected, kept me researching, and kept me creative, while I was emotionally shut down during the situation.

In the past decade, this hood has kept many heads warm across the country and around the globe.

I have decided it is now time to allow my first Quilted Winter Hood Pattern to retire. At the end of the year, December 31st, the pattern will leave my shop.

At some point in the future I will develop a new quilted winter hood pattern focused on the many quilted hoods in my collection.

  1. This is the first hood I made and I still wear it…and not just for events. Great pattern. (Though I have to say, when I saw the subject line, I wondered if you were retiring. Glad it’s just the pattern.)

  2. I am glad you like it so much.
    (it will be quite some time before I retire, if at all.)
