Our planned release date of Fall 2018 has come and is almost gone, and yet, our patterns still haven’t launched! We wanted to fill you in on what we've been working on, what's been holding us up, and roughly when you can expect to be able to purchase Fig + Needle patterns.
As might be expected while starting a new business, we’ve run into some delays over the past few months. The first large hurdle we encountered was grading: we weren’t happy with our original grading efforts, and since great fit across all our size ranges is very important to us, we ultimately decided to have a professional grade our two size ranges for both patterns. This was a fantastic decision and we're so happy with the results, but extra time was necessary to put the properly graded versions through pattern testing.
The second large hurdle has been the process of setting up a new business operating from two different states, as Ping is in California, and Sandra moved to Washington in the spring. (At least we’re in the same time zone!) As of right now, the patterns themselves are complete. We’re putting some final touches on everything, and perfecting our instructions, but we’re also waiting for some paperwork to be finalized.
Due to the upcoming holiday craziness, we’re currently looking at January for our first official launch, and we are SO EXCITED! We can’t wait to show you what we’ve been working on, and we really appreciate all of the support we’ve received while we work out the growing pains of getting started. We’d also like to extend a very special thank you to our testers, who have been so amazing and patient with us throughout this process.
