Today's a very special day for me.  My oldest son, Mark, is turning 19 and this is a huge day for our family.  You may have come to know Mark a little as he always gets dragged in to help me model any of the men's or unisex patterns like the recent Unisex Pajama Pattern (my husband just won't do it..) and Mark's always a very good sport about it.

I wanted to ask you to help me celebrate with this surprise giveaway of a $5.75 RRP pattern FREE today only.  I also wanted to say thank you to everyone who participated in our recent discussion on Craftsy Unlimited.  The nearly 150 detailed, first-hand reader comments have really become an important resource to other readers contemplating using the new service.

    Thank you for the free pattern. It looks like it would be a fun project. I am wondering if you might know whether my sewing machine would be able to handle projects like this. I have a Singer Fashion Mate Machine. Do you think it would be able to handle the layers involved in making wristlets, purses, etc. Thank you!

    Thank you for the free pattern and a very happy birthday to Mark. It’s a real milestone birthday, at least here in Canada.

    I have so many Craftsy classes that I have purchased already. I still need to make many of them and that’s my goal for this year. If, and that’s a big if, I get them finished, I might look at the Craftsy Unlimited option.

    Thanks again!
