I first built my Northern Lace website 18 years ago. And for the last 16 winters I have intended to revamp it. I have finally done it!
The original site had been added to piecemeal over the years, but this time I have started from scratch and built a site long the same lines as my Northern Lace Press site.
I wanted to keep the site quick to load and easy to manoeuvre. (My own pet hate is sites which are all bells and whistles and take forever to load!) I also wanted to add my patterns to the site.
I have kept the colours the same on every page, but have changed the top banner each time. The home page gives general details, along with links to my Twitter, Facebook and Ravelry feeds. The legal bits are all on the About page.
Rather than list my books here, I have a page which links over to the Northern Lace Press website.
All this is good, but the best bit is that I now have a shop with all my patterns accessible from my own website. Prices are in ££ and include VAT where appropriate (sorry about that!). And you can pay with either Paypal or directly with your credit/debit card.
