April 11, 2014Spring is springing up everywhere around us and with the changing of the season Small Potatoes is busy working behind the scenes on a new website. Launching soon, the new site will have new fabrics (owls, whales, comics, kitties, Japanese dolls, pirates, florals and did I mention owls?), new photos, new promotions and an amazing new easy-to-use shopping cart system. Here's a sneak peek of a few of the new fabrics I'm excited to share with you soon. Thanks for your patience while I finish up tweaking the last bits of the new site - it will be worth the wait, I promise!

Wow, where did the frosty air come from all of a sudden? Time to pull out the winter gear already? I don’t know about you but I’m still not ready to put away the flip flops. Time to face reality though... if you’re like me, you’re faced with some single mittens already. If you’re looking for mitten straps, you’ve come to the right place. Small Potatoes Mitten Leashes are the perfect solution!

To all the wonderful customers and new faces I met this past weekend at the Winnipeg Folk Festival, thank you from the bottom of my heart for making the festival a great success for Small Potatoes. By far, my most popular seller of the weekend is my fest-exclusive guitar T-shirts. For anyone who's kicking themselves for not buying one on the weekend (or not buying more than one), I have some left over – limited sizes and colours available. If you would like to send me a request, please email me what size you're looking for at firstname.lastname@example.org

Spring is just around the corner! It’s still snowing like gangbusters out my window but hopefully where you are you’re starting to see the first signs of warmer weather. With visions of tulips and robins dancing in my head I’m starting to make room for summer fabric - and putting the whole store on sale! Get 20% off for the month of March. Time to stock up on all your favourite baby gear and baby shower gifts.

Happy New Year everyone! Yes, I know the year is hardly “new” any more but, hey, a girl’s gotta hibernate a bit in this deep freeze. In true Winnipegger style, I went out in -39°C weather today to attend an outdoor birthday party involving skating, tobogganing and snowman-topped cupcakes. While warming up in the park shelter by the fire, a topic of discussion was the prevalence of single mittens this time of year. Sound familiar? In honour of such a tragic – albeit common – occurrence, I have put my Mitten Leashes on sale for the remainder of the winter. Get ’em while they’re, ahem, hot!

Thanks to everyone who helped make my booth in the Winnipeg Folk Festival Handmade Village my most successful event to date. I always love getting to meet new customers, getting hugs from long-time customers and seeing all the adorable babies as their moms tie a bonnet on them, or hold up a dress for size. This event is one that I look forward to all year and this year did not let me down. The weather was great, the music was amazing and everyone just seemed to be having a blast. Here are some pics from my booth.

Seasons greetings from Small Potatoes! At this point, I can no longer guarantee pre-Christmas delivery on any new orders. We will be closed 12/24/2010 to 1/03/2011 for the holidays. Orders can still be placed but my sewing machine will be kicking its feet up and taking a rest. I think I will buy it a new bottle of machine oil for Christmas, it really deserves to be pampered, it has been working over-time this season.

Well the last two weeks have been an amazing chance to spend time with my family and refresh and recharge while vacationing in the Rockies, while visiting family in stops along the way. And now it’s back to work. I’ve taken the “closed” sign out of the shop window and now I’m back in business and already thinking about the fall (shudder).

By looking at the gap in entries between this one and the previous one you might be thinking that Small Potatoes has taken a bit of a hiatus. However, that couldn't be further from the truth. The Small Potatoes Web department* has been working hard to bring you a fresh and shiny new online experience.
With the help of 11 amazingly talented baby models (and their mamas) and photographer, Ian McCausland, there’s a whole bunch of super cute new photography. I’ve also spent countless hours sourcing some absolutely amazing new fabric that I’m sure you will love.
As well, there’s a new shopping cart system to make your purchasing a little easier and it also allows me to finally sell online gift certificates. Your comments, as always, are greatly appreciated. In fact, you can now review individual products and share them with your friends. I hope you enjoy the new site. Stay tuned for more new features!
*really, just me with the help of my extremely talented programmer-wizard brother.

I'm looking forward to starting a fresh new year with some new products and some amazing new fabrics that I am so excited to share with you. Happy New Year!
