Turnkey Design, Build, Support Services



Quilting is a visual art, so it was important that all pattern pages were able to display a number of images.  A visitor must be able to browse the images on posts and product pages.

For purchasing a pattern, the WooCommerce e-commerce solution is used. WooCommerce is a feature rich solution that offers all the current and future shopping features needed. Key features include:

  •  Download virtual files
  • Shipping products if desired
  • Simplified checkout, no account registration needed,
  • Local pricing (currency switching)
  • PayPal provides protection for the purchaser.
  • Bank transfer payment option for AUS customers.

The Blog is important and exists to present articles of interest to quilters and announce the release of new patterns and products.

A newsletter system is integrated and it maintains a distribution list for signed up subscribers. A subscriber list is maintained.

Website performance and security has been significantly improved during this update. .

The design was built on the highly flexible WordPress CMS platform.
