Merry Christmas and Happy New Year 2021

It has been a very strange and hectic year, to say the least…so I hope that 2021 will bring you lots of happiness and joy to compensate for the year before. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year, friends!

Year In Review

In the past 12 months I managed to publish 12 NEW designs (1 knitting, 9 crochet, and 2 quilting patterns), and I wrote a NEW book that is coming out early next year – Crochet Animal Slippers!

In addition, we moved our small family business 4000+ km across Canada from Southern Ontario to our new home in British Columbia.

My 2020 Designs

Many thanks to our tech editors (Edie Eckman & Teresa Kent) and to our wonderful testing team for helping me delivering these designs to you:

Pattern Updates

While I love designing new patterns, it is also very important to me to keep my previous designs up to date. Here are 8 patterns that were updated this year. You may need to send me an email if you haven’t received updates for previously purchased patterns.


We translated 2 of my most popular patterns to Danish and 3 patterns to German. Huge thank you to Judith Schumacher and Zarah Lawford for their help with translations.

Oh…and of course, I’m so excited about Korean version of my book Crochet Animal Rugs, which was also translated this year! The cover photo is different from the original book, but the content is the same.
