Holiday and Shop Announcements
Well, friends the holiday shopping season is officially upon us. I have also been busy over here at La Rue de Fleurs HQ finishing up projects, refining the web store and creating new listings for sale. This week I would just like to give you a few housekeeping notes about what I have added for the holiday shopping season. In addition to all of the new things below, I will be sending out some very special offers to everyone on the newsletter subscriber list to help make their holiday shopping experience extra special as well as let you know how grateful I am for all of your support year round.
So, without further adieu, here are all of the new things you will find on La Rue de Fleurs.:
1. Wish List Feature
A new wish list feature has been added to the La Rue de Fleurs website! Fancy, I know. Now you will be able to create a wish list of all of your favorite handmade quilts, soft goods, home decor, and patterns (yep, well talk about that new addition later!) and email them to all your friends and family so they will know exactly what you want. Not only would this be great for the holidays, but it will also be wonderful if you are building a baby registry and want some of those unique handmade touches you can only get here. Adding items to a wish list will allow you to keep track of your favorites any time of year, and if you are on the newsletter list, prepare for early sales so you never miss out.
The feature can be accessed both by clicking on the "favorites button," a little heart that floats in the bottom right hand corner of the page, or directly on the item itself. Add to and email those lists this week because if you're on the newsletter list you will be receiving some early bird and special holiday offers in next week's Inspiration Is Everywhere Newsletter. Since everything I make is by hand and couture often only one exists or every will exist, so having that list ready is the best way to ensure you or your loved ones know just what you had your eye on before it is sold.
Not currently signed up for the newsletter? What are you waiting for!?! Go here and sign up so you never miss a post or special offer. You will also immediately receive a coupon code good for 10% off your next order. Sign up by scrolling to the bottom of the page: https://laruedefleurs.com/

3. Patterns by La Rue de Fleurs
The much awaited release of the Woven Trellis Table Linens Bundle Pattern has launched and is available for purchase as a digital download in the newest section of my shop! I am so excited to begin sharing another part of the creative journey with you through the release of original patterns. Woven Trellis is just the first of many! I already have a few other drafts started and I hope to bring them to you more frequently in 2020.
To get your copy of the Woven Trellis Table Linens Bundle pattern, which includes three different designs in several different variations, you can visit the pattern link in my online shop. The bundle pattern will guide you step by step through the process of creating unique table linens for your home or gifting with detailed instructions and easy to understand graphics. If you have sewn and quilted before, you're all set, but even if you haven't this is a great beginner pattern to try. I am confident you will love creating with this pattern, will enjoy the process and love all of the decor possibilities.
4. Stars and Straps Throw Quilt PDF Pattern is FREE for a limited time!
To celebrate the success of the Quilts for a Cause program and the release of patterns by La Rue de Fleurs, I am offering the Stars and Straps Throw Quilt PDF pattern FREE for a limited time. The pattern includes all fabric requirements, instructions and graphics so you can get a taste of what to expect from future La Rue de Fleurs patterns.
The free downloadable pattern gives complete directions for just the 64in square throw size I made for the Quarter 4 Quilts for a Cause donation. When I offer the pattern for sale, fabric requirements and directions for baby through twin sizes will be provided as well.
Though I made this quilt in a patriotic theme, I think it would work equally well in Christmas holiday fabrics for a festive accent to your home for the holidays. It could also be made for everyday in simple solids to match your home.
Go ahead and download the Stars and Straps Throw Quilt for free through the end of 2019 and let me know your thoughts on my new pattern venture! I welcome your feedback and advice so I can continue to grow and improve in this new endeavor!
Thank you again for your continued support of my handmade creative business! There simply are not words to express how much your support means to me. I look forward to providing more handmade artful goodness and creative content in the new year. May you and your family have a blessed end of 2019 and prosperous 2020! xoxo Janice
