Go to Seamwork


I wanted to give you all a little heads up about what’s going on this week…

Tomorrow, at 10AM PDT, we’ll be releasing our brand new pattern, so be here for that! There is a lot to say about this pattern, and a lot to share. We’ll also be doing a limited time promotion, so definitely tune in.

The following day (Wednesday), I’ll be announcing a big big big sewing contest we’ve planned for the new design, so check back in for the details on that. It’s going to be a lot of fun, and we have a massive bundle of prizes you can win. It’s going to be a fun week.

I’m so excited I can hardly wait! I’m on this site every single day to see what Colette has going on that day. I own a bunch of patterns as well as your book and I can’t wait to see this new pattern design. I also think this will be the first ever contest I join. I wish you guys the most success in all your endeavors!


So exciting! I can’t wait to read all the details.


So excited for tomorrow!



Jeri Sullivan

Can’t wait. With nearly 80 degree weather over the weekend, I need to make some new dresses!


I. can’t. wait!! I am planning on ordering the Ginger skirt so I’m waiting to see what this is before I order :)


Yay! I can’t wait to see it!


Tomorrow your pattern and my friend’s novel come out. Today is like Christmas Eve! I’m going to go to bed at 7, because I can’t stand the wait!


Oooooooooohhhhhhhh…….. Soooooo excited, pls pls pls hurry! Me needy new pattern now!


oh yes!!! i’ve been looking forward to this for weeks!


I am really looking forward to your new pattern, love your book by the way.

Madeline Chard

Yeah! Really hope your competition is “Southern hemisphere inclusive”. Always end up sewing off-season! Excited for a new pattern.


I was excited to check the blog this morning, but just realised that 10am your time is not until 5pm my time (GMT). 7 more hours to wait!


I know! I’m waiting with bated breath, too. Luckily, I’m in CST so I’m only 2 hours ahead of Colette Time…about 3 more hours to wait.


I know! The timing tricked me last time there was a release — I kept refreshing before I realized that I had to wait 3 more hours (EST). But it’s getting closer!


Looking forward to the release since I’m eager to get back to my Sewing asap! I just resurrected the machine, now I need to get the Second Coming of the Serger (it’s in the storage unit). With serger and the sewing machine sitting next to each other, sewn garments will be born in no time. What’s more, I like the idea of trying new patterns, it’s re-energizing. Good luck with this latest release!


oooooh, I hate being on EST!!!!!


gaaaa it’s 4 pm here in Italy and the wait is coming toooooooooo much :))
I can’t wait!!!!


I saw it on another site where they sell your patterns and it is gorgeous! Can’t wait!


when is the announcement? im at work, on my cell phone… the suspence is killingme!


1PM Eastern Standard (US east coast)


Hum… about 45 minutes to go… It will be 6 PM in Paris (France)

Paige @ LPD

I’m seriously counting the minutes, lol.


I am counting down the minutes too! (EST)
