I Got a Free Pattern from Simplicity!


I received this free pattern from Simplicity!
A couple weeks ago there was a pattern sale at Hancocks and I went LOL! They did not have this pattern in stock. (Not surprised!) But, when visiting the Simplicity site one day, I got the chance to participate in a survey to test their new site. I usually don't bother with surveys, but since they were giving a free gift, why not! So far I haven't seen the updated site yet, they are probably still working on it.
I bought a couple of McCalls patterns over the weekend at Hancocks. They were on sale. Will share later. I have quite a few projects lined up that I want to sew. I just took a peek at a couple of fabrics in my stash that I had put aside. I think I'll go shopping in my stash tonight and make some concrete choices of what to do next. And, I need to post on PR the two dresses I made for my granddaughter.
I still go to Hancocks although I'm sure I've said I'd never go there again because they never have all of what I want and it's along the way when I'm doing errands. I continue to give them a chance. Hmmm! I even saw some cute fabric, but I didn't purchase because do I really need more fabric, LOL! Yeah of course! Have a great day!

I also took the survey by chance last week. My free Simplicity pattern 2566 arrived at my house on Friday. I also picked up some of the McCall's patterns on Friday from Hancock Fabrics.

Thank you for the lovely compliment.

I need to check my pattern stash for that one, I'd purchased a lot of simplicity patterns during one of JoAnn's $.99 sale, really like it.

That's nice that they sent out a free pattern. Yeah, I know what you mean about Hancock's. When my local one was still open, I never could get everything I wanted. Sometimes it was kind of frustrating, but being the sucker that I am I always went back. Definitely because of the $1/pattern sales.
