Tomorrow I will be discussing one of my favorite charities, Northern Adirondack Hats for Hope Initiative, NY.. (we have a facebook page) While looking for patterns to use for this year's distribution I ran across Pam Dajczak from Sincerely, Pam designs. Pam lives in Ontario, Canada so she knows from cold. :) I am sure there are others reading this blog who, are either looking for great patterns to make as this year's holiday gifts, or are looking for something a little fresh to give to charity. I think you'll find something you like at Sincerely, Pam designs (I found several! LOL)
I do not mind spending money for patterns created by independent artists like Pam Dajczak for designs that I will use mostly for my charity work repeatedly. It's a good all over feeling everyone, in this case, wins. I do not expect designers to give away charity patterns for free. Pam Dajczak, has made her passion into her job. She is a work from home mom. Her pattern sales help support her family. Just like the sales of my work support my family and my charity work. I like to support by buying a pattern if and when I can.
Sincerely, Pam's designs run the gambit from women's sweaters to baby clothes. Checking her page on Ravelry I found 121 designs to her name! Including pattern bundles. I like pattern bundles! A whole collection of patterns for one price? Who can beat that? Pam Dajczak has created 19 bundles. While it was nigh unto impossible to pick a few I managed :) (Of course I had to look at all of them to be sure I picked the patterns I really liked LOL)
Sincerely, Pam's designs make life easy for those of us who have many people to give gifts or who are asked by their kids, "Hey, Mom can you make this?" (As my kids have done in the past LOL) Pam Dajczak has created some really nice Unisex designs that are sure to impress.
I'm not really a young woman any more but I still like to keep up with fashion accessories and clothing. I like comfortable clothes that don't look sloppy. Pam Dajczak really answers the call for clothing that mixes fashion and function. When I choose pieces from a designer's collection to share, I try to envision friends or family wearing the pieces to see if they would have broad appeal. These pieces are classic and classy.
This blog practically wrote itself! I want to thank Pam Dajczak for the fabulous designs and for enticing me to buy a few... yea I said a few LOL! I encourage all of my readers to check out The Sincerely, Pam Monthly CAL group (crochet along), The Sincerely, Pam Facebook page , and Sincerely, Pam the Weebly Blog. Thank you for reading the blog today and if you stop by the Sincerely, Pam pages write her a note to say hello!
