    I am a designer and patternmaker within the textiles and craft and patchwork genre. My initial pattern making business was undertaken in the field of stitchery and quilts, but I have diversified enormously in the past year or so. My blog displays examples of the work I am currently undertaking. http://www.ricketystitches.typepad.com

    I am in need of a pattern designer to help me create a pattern for backpack that mounts a touch screen tablet device on the outside of the bag. I’m located in Greensboro North Carolina and really having a difficult time locating a commercial pattern designer. I welcom any comments or suggestions on how to go about achieving this goal. thank you for your time and consideration.

    Today, I went to the beach with my children.
    I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old
    daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She placed the shell
    to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside
    and it pinched her ear. She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is totally off topic
    but I had to tell someone!

  28. 31 Bronwyn April 2, 2014 at 2:26 am

    I’d love you to include me on your list. Thanks

    You really make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this topic to be actually something that I think I would never understand.
    It seems too complicated and very broad for me. I’m looking forward
    for your next post, I’ll try to get the hang of

Craft Apple

An apple a day keeps the doctor away, right? Well, crafting is my apple. It’s what I do to maintain my sanity while taking care of my family. I homeschool my three boys, ages 14, 15, and 16), am a quilter, a bagaholic, and pattern designer.  Oh – and I also like taking pictures.
