Notice of a Work Disruption at Canada Post

Bad news: "Canada Post received notice that the Canadian Union of Postal Workers (CUPW) intends to begin strike activities at 11:59 p.m. EDT on June 2, 2011. In the event of a strike, Canada Post will not operate. Mail and parcels will not be delivered." Orders shipping to Canada:  All orders will be on hold until the conflict resolves.

There's an App for That Too!

Great news! We just released a free  Jalie Application  for all iPhone/iPod/iPad owners out there! This means that you can now take your Jalie catalog with you without having to connect to the internet. When you have access to a network, you can download and save backs of patterns and instructions for your next trip to the fabric store. You can search the offline catalog by keyword,  by pattern number or category...  or simply flip through the catalog pages for inspiration.! Once you are on the pattern detail page, you can view pattern pieces and line drawings and tag the patterns as Favorite or Owned. This means a quick access patterns in your wishlist and no more duplicate purchases!  The application lets you add patterns to an offline shopping cart and when you are connected to the Internet, simply hit the checkout button to move all the items to our online shopping cart and complete your purchase (the buy 3, get 1 free promotion on still applies)

Jalie on Ice

I recently received an email from a professional skater who made all the costumes for Sterren Dansen Op Het IJs , the Dutch version of Skating with the Stars . He said he used our patterns for each and every costume on the show (modified of course - as you can see in the photos below) and the results are s-t-u-n-n-i-n-g: It is such a thrill to see our patterns come to life in such beautiful pieces. I could not help but browse online to find more photos... I stumbled across this funky version of leotard 2792 (view C) with a "slightly" higher leg.  Click the link to view more photos of the show. Kudos to Simon and his team for those three months of hard (but ooooh so productive) work. I'm sure it will inspire many skaters out there!
