Sarai started Colette back in 2009. She believes the primary role of a business should be to help people. She loves good books, sewing with wool, her charming cats, working in her garden, and eating salsa.

I’m about to purchase my third copy of the Colette Sewing book (after the dog did it first, now my toddler has gotten her hands on the patterns and it’s not pretty) and was wondering if you would consider making it available as a digital book with pdf’s? I love your pdf patterns and am still using your book.

I’d love to, but unfortunately that’s all up to the publisher! They have the rights to the book and patterns, since they published it.
