Rated 5 out of 5 by Elle3 from 12 Month Journal for all Sewing Projects This is an excellent 12 month journal, notes, undated calendar to record your garment projects and it has great information for a beginner Dressmaker. It has pages for detail information you need to remember on past projects. Also, pages for keeping record of your patterns, notions needed and other small details. Every time I receive a pattern I recorded the information on the pattern sheet. When I finished a garment I save a swatch and answer the questions about the project. This is an excellent tool to have and give to a Dressmaker. I hope Simplicity will have refills for 2019 calendar which will be awesome.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Karankws from Love it, Beautiful I bought this a few weeks ago and have already planned many projects. I wish I could buy more Project pages. Scanning and printing is just not the same. Beautiful pictures. Great info pages. Calendar pages are perfect size. I don't recommend carrying it many places, it's not very durable but that does not bother me, looks and feel vintage which is perfect for my vintage sewing room.

Rated 5 out of 5 by GinaRose from How exciting! I just bought this planner (and a lot of other 90th anniversary items). I found the planner at Hobby Lobby. It touched my heart but didn't buy it that day. I came home and went to your website. I decided to go back to Hobby Lobby so I could use their 40% off coupon and then purchased the other items online. I started to make copies of the calendar pages, etc. but then came back to read more about if Simplicity would be offering refill pages or another planner. I am going to a sewing class this afternoon. I plan to share it with anyone who will listen. I hope to get even more ideas from them. Let us all know if you plan to have something available like this or refills for next year as soon as possible. I think more people would pay the full online price of $39.99 if they knew refill would be available.

Rated 5 out of 5 by She Cave Sewing Chick from SO - there I was; slithering around Hobby Lobby, totally unaware that big things were about to change in my tiny, sewing-room/she-cave-dwelling life. It was sitting upon a shelf, the last of its kind in the store. Already roughly man-handled by some thoughtless cretin whose only real purpose in visiting Hobby Lobby was probably to purchase some pipe cleaners, pom poms and glue to make all her Christmas gifts that year - clearly, a specimen who could not appreciate what lay behind the clear seals she had carelessly broken. No, I'm sure the magic of the contents eluded her, never having experienced the nirvana of a sewing machine humming along. But, I digress. I picked it up, and much as a child chooses a small puppy or kitten on Christmas Eve, I knew I had found the one. It was meant to be. I had found my companion. For the next year, at least. It has all the bits we sewers and planners crave. A perfect marriage of creativity and planning. A Place for my swatches. A Place to store measurements. A Place to remind myself to routinely throw something in the crock pot for the other house-dwellers so they don't starve while I'm in my she-cave, humming along with my sewing machine as it creates the latest and greatest from the blob of fabric I feed it. The only improvements that could be made would be additional pages sold separately, as I have more humans to sew for and keep measurements on than pages provided, or perhaps a website password page for all the fabric places I shop from online. Otherwise - zero improvements. SIMPLICITY - You have something with bringing out the retro themed items. Don't overlook this. We sewers LOVE vintage, and LOVE sewing history!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Farm Sweet Farm from Oh simplicity you’ve made my year! Simplicity I can’t say enough good about this beautiful planner! It’s amazing! I’m a planner junky but I’ve struggled to find a sewing themed planner that is not only beautiful but useful. Well here it is! I was literally looking at you’re website drooling over this planner when my sister texted me a picture of it at her Hobby Lobby! I almost died! Was she really holding that planner in her hand? For five minutes I held my breath waiting for the confirmation text. Finally, the text came in and she was in fact holding it in her hands! Other than the birth of my children, I cant remember ever being so excited. The art alone is amazing, especially for anyone who sat at the pattern counter as a little girl looking through the Simplicity books, thinking about what she would make one day, while mom shopped for the perfect fabric for her pattern. I’ve watched some YouTubers say they think the cover is cheap but I don’t know how anyone could say that! It’s beautifuk to look at and I also like that it’s not a cheap looking laminated cover! The clear pockets, the stickers, the project planning pages are absolutely useful and stunning all at the same time! Each months tips are helpful with space to write goals and take notes! Also another very helpful thing is that you can add additional paper etc. from Create 365 because it’s the same planner system. The possibilities are endless now! Perfect!! The calander week days has a horizontal lay out, I personally prefer a vertical, but that’s only my personal preference. Simplicity will you please keep making these planners ever year! They are truly AMAZING!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Bizprof from Great idea but wish for more quality... Simplicity, you are holding out on us. Why wait until your anniversary to make all of these fabulous products? I purchased the planner and like some others, I wish the disks and cover were more durable. But since I am happy with my current planner, this is simply be used as a prop in my crafts room. I purchased the mugs, coasters, tin boxes, calendar, magnets all with that vintage vibe. Plaese consider making products of this ilk available all year round. Add COLORING BOOKS, too. Each one featuring a different decade. You have a wealth of imagery in your archives. Please share it with us fashion starved customers. The way people dress today cannot hold a candle to yesteryear. Perhaps we can begin a style revolution to elegance and sophistication in dress!
