For some reason for awhile I couldn't get a response clicking on a pattern on the Simplicity site to see more than the thumbnails, Simplicity or New Look. Now I can get them to open.... but it's slower than dialup. I've tried with IE or Firefox. Same result. Any ideas? Is it just me? I don't have the problem on other sites so don't think it's my computer or isp.

The Simplicity site is notoriously slow. So much so that I very rarely visit the site anymore. You can find several threads on PR mentioning this over the years.

I can't imagine HOW they make the site so slow, but they're in a class by themselves. We should unleash the Simplicity website on our sworn enemies.

Well thanks, you're right it's never been lightening fast so what I was noticing wasn't just slow, but a change from even normal slow (for them). I find Nordstrom's and Target excessively slow to respond or implement search specifications, I don't know how major retailers like that get away with it.

Even worse, Simplicity has not acknowledged they even have a problem.

Such a shame, but Simplicity's site is just soooo slow. Sometimes I put up with it just to get at the content. But I usually order Simplicity from the Sewing Patterns site.

Is there any site that has all their patterns seen in the catalog? It's nice to browse at home before a sale, but not all pictured.
Guess I'm off the HL's 99 cents sale today....

hahaha!

I love browsing patterns here (especially new releases) because you have the number of reviews right there at the same time!
