New Year, New Nie McDee (sort of)

Posted by Leonie McDonald on

Happy new year, friends! 2021 is already... interesting, isn’t it? I really hope you’re doing OK.

Over here the shop is back open, the website has had a refresh, and I’m happily stitching away again. I’ve got some fun plans for Nie McDee this year but first, a few changes are coming. To keep this post short and sweet, I’m just going to jump straight into them. 

Last Chance to Buy Kits

The main news is that kits are going away. Once I’ve sold out of the remaining stock, I won’t be listing any more. Kits are really costly and time-consuming to put together and unfortunately with relatively few sales I’m just not able to keep them going. I may be able to bring them back in some capacity in the future, but for now it's the end of the line for kits.

I still fully intend to produce lots of digital patterns (you’ll find them on Etsy) and I’m planning on setting up a Patreon in the next month or so which will act as a monthly pattern subscription service type thing but more on that later!

Ready Made Collections Are Coming

I’m currently working on a small collection of ready made goodies. My plan is to launch small batches sporadically, perhaps once every month or so. As you know, stitching takes a lot of time so I can’t produce heaps of stuff, and there’s a lot to consider with pricing. It might be a little while before I get anything listed but I hope it’ll be worth the wait. 

I’m most excited about this change. I set up this whole business so I could make things for a living, and I finally feel confident enough to actually sell stuff I’ve made.

As for everything else, it’ll remain much the same. I’ll still be over-sharing on Instagram, still posting inconsistently on the blog, and still binge watching historical costume YouTube channels while I stitch.

Thanks so much for reading! If you have any questions about any of the above, do feel free to drop me an email or DM.
