An Occasion for a Great Pattern
Occasionette is a wonderful shop owned and operated by artist-extraordinaire, Sara Selepouchin Villari. After several years successfully growing her online store, Girls Can Tell, Sara opened shop in her hometown of Philadelphia. The store showcases Sara’s whimsical and clever line of tea towels, as well as beautiful gift items made all around the country. Need something for a baby shower? Bachelorette party? Housewarming? Sara’s Occasionette has something for every occasion.

Sara can now use this pattern on her website, in displays, gift packaging, and other printed goods that will help tell the story of her space.
