Keep those cards and letters coming ;-)

I've spent a good part of the morning reading your emails and comments here and on the Facebook pages about Quilting Celebrations. It's been a wonderful morning to hear how much fun you're having with it. Some of you have already finished projects from it (I'm impressed!). That's what I want to hear - that it's a magazine you'll actually read and USE! Has anyone out there made one of the recipes yet? I'd love to hear from you, too.

Please be sure to also copy your comments and make them known to Fons & Porter. After all, it's the tean there that needs to know if you want to see Quilting Celebrations become a regular thing. How would you like to have it come to you 4-6 times/year? I'd love to be able to bring it to you, and so would the great people who helped me with this issue.

So please contact F&P and post your comments here as well:!/FonsandPorter.

Thanks so much for your support and interest in what I do. I have a blast and want to include you all in the fun!

Keep the comments coming as we celebrate quilting.

Cheers! :)

Christmas Cheer

Good news...I thought my holiday embroidery collection wasn't going to be available for a couple of weeks but I was wrong. Christmas Cheer is available now! See the post below for more info and, if you'd like to order, here's a link.

I hope you like it! :)

Christmas Cheer

Here's a peek at my upcoming machine embroidery collection, Patrick Lose's Christmas Cheer. I don't have all of the details yet but this one should ship in October. You've been asking for them and I'm really excited to be able to bring you some new embroideries for the holidays.

Check back for more details or watch the website. We'll post the info as soon as we have it.

Click here for a larger image of the designs included in the collection.

Come see us in Houston!

After several emails this morning from shop owners/customers asking why we wouldn't be attending Quilt Market in Houston we did some checking and, lo and behold, Patrick Lose Studios is not listed as an exhibitor. The fact is, we have taken a booth in the Robert Kaufman Fabrics grouping and, although we were assured we would still be listed separately as a vendor, it didn't happen.

I'm sorry for the confusion this has caused and, no doubt, will continue to cause but it's out of our control.

Not the best way to start a Monday..... :-(

Happy Friday :)

I can't believe what the FedEx guy just dropped off. I had no idea it was coming so soon but here's a little peek in the box. It's the sample yardage of my Scribbles "Meander" collection for Robert Kaufman Fabrics. What a GREAT surprise and a perfect end to the work week.

I thought you might enjoy a look at what's coming to your favorite quilt shop in the near future. Click on the photos for a more up-close-and-personal look.

More details to come. I hope your Friday is happy, too! :)

This just in...

Quilting Celebrations! Yep, I have the real thing in my hands and I'm awfully proud of it and the crew that helped me bring it to you. It's been a long time in the making but it was worth it. I hope you think so, too!

More to come....

A whole new Party venue!

How would you like to join us to Party with Patrick on the high seas? We're dreaming up a few cruises for 2011 and would love to know where you'd like to go with Gary and me and a whole bunch of other quilting friends, old and new. It's quilting and camaraderie taken to a whole new level.

As details become available, we'll be posting them here and on the website under "Party with Patrick!". Info will also be available on the PWP Facebook page and my personal fan page. Stay tuned for the latest on this exciting new endeavor for all of us. What could be better than a wonderful cruise vacation to exotic places? Including quilting and partying time on the agenda!

I hope you'll join us on one of our adventures :)
