Are you interested in sponsoring Kid’s Clothes Week this fall? We would love to have you! Sponsorship for KCW is in 3 month blocks: the month before KCW, the month during, and the month after. For this fall that means September, October, and November. All sponsor spots run both on the KCW blog and the KCW community site. There are 3 sizes available for sponsorship. All sizes are the same on the blog and the community website.
- SMALL: 145 pixels wide x 125 pixels high. There are 20 small sponsor spots available, but the small spots are shared so only 6 will show at one time. They are randomized and all of them are not shown on each page load. The small sponsor spot is $25
- MEDIUM: 300 pixels wide x 125 pixel high. Only 8 medium spots are available and these are always visible. The medium sponsor spot is $75.
- LARGE: 300 pixels wide x 260 pixels high. The large sponsor spot also comes with the opportunity for a sponsored post & giveaway the week before KCW! There are only 5 spots available and the cost is $150. Large sponsor spots are always visible.
Since the last KCW, Meg and I have gone through all your comments and feedback from facebook, twitter, and this blog. We’ve made ourselves a big to-do list filled with things that will make the Kid’s Clothes Week community site even better. Personally, I love a list and the tiny happiness that comes with crossing things off a list. I am happy to report that we have a few of your most asked for items taken care of:
This is a big one. You can now comment on people’s projects! Often when I was looking through last season’s projects, I had the impulse to tell people how cool their stuff was, but there was no commenting ability. Ack! We know you felt it too, so we have commenting all set and ready for the coming season.
The KCW image upload process wasn’t always being respectful of the auto-rotate flag that some cameras have. This technical difficulty is all fixed. If you have sideways images on the site, you can delete them and re-upload them, and them problem will be fixed.
Projects for a Pattern
On pattern pages, you can see the most recent 20 projects made with that pattern. This is the most fun! We’ll also be adding a link to a page that will show all the projects for that pattern.
If you’re looking for something in particular, the search function is the way to go, but if you just want to browse, we’ve added pagination to projects and patterns to make this a little easier and faster.
We’ve also put in a number of smaller changes, and we still have more to go! Dashboard additions, favorites, and main project image flagging are coming up next. Thanks for all your suggestions!
In past KCWs, everybody went to flickr to see pictures of your sewing projects. Now, with the new site, you can share not only pictures of your projects, but notes about the pattern you used, stories of how the sewing went, and any changes you made. You can also rate the pattern or tutorial you used and tell people whether or not it’s worth making!
