There's wooly magic in the air!
in the Patch designs
....Where we Color your World with Creativity!  
It is time!  It is time once again for change.  The seasons change and everyday of our life we change.  We assimilate the experiences of the day while we sleep each night.  Some changes are a response to something that has happened to us while others are the result of some things happening within us which happens to be the case for the changes coming here in the Patch designs.  Here is a highlight of some those changes:

1.  We have discontinued our Glazed & Matte Threads.  
2.  We will be having a closeout final sale of all the cottons remaining in our physical (but currently closed) retail store.  Sign up for the newsletter for more details.
3.  ALL our patterns will be changing to PDF very soon while some of them have already been reformatted and are now available. I hope you will honor the rights of publication and ownership governing those, please & thank you.
4.  We will be moving.  Yes, our beautiful historical home in downtown Troy, Ohio is for sale.  Click here to see the FB page I created featuring it.  When we have a closing date, Mitch and will be packing up the truck to make the move to.....(can't you hear the Beverly Hillbillys theme song right about now?).  We will be moving to the Pocono Mountains in Pennsylvania.
5.  I am entertaining the notion of selling in the Patch designs.  (email me if you would be interested;   I feel a calling to move into the next progression in my life.  I will be telling you more about that as soon as I feel released to do so and everything is in order -- which just means, not yet.

They are here!

    Wool Q & A
    1.  What does COLORFAST mean?  My undergrad degree is in Communication Studies.  In one of my classes the professor said something that was eternally profound.  She said, "meanings are not in words but in people."  It's true -- which is why it is so important to say what you mean and explain what you mean.  What I mean when I say my wools are COLORFAST I mean that under my recommended care, the colors will not run out of your project. No one can say definitively that any fabric/dye is colorfast under any conditions as there are products/chemicals that can pull all if not some color out; ask any hair color expert or chemical scientist.
    2.  So how do I recommend you care for our wools?  There is no real need to wash my wools before you use them as they are already felted in a process that washes them 3 times, but if after making your project you need to wash them then do so as such:  Either by hand or machine, gentle cycle or easy baby by hand, in cool water, NO BLEACH or harsh detergents, gentle detergent like ALL-free & clear and drying them in a medium heat dryer.  If you've stitched something by hand you might want to consider minimal agitation or tumbling as few enjoy agitation.3.  Cottons have a standard width of 44/45"; do wools have a industry standard width?  I wish.  No they don't.  I've been playing with wools for over 42 years.  I took a Tailoring class at Greenon High School my senior year.  We were supposed to choose a difficult project and make it out of wool.  I choose to make a Pendleton wool trench coat in demin blue with a flannel back lining.  It was awesome!  The width of fabric was 60".  In the time since, I've seen wools range from 48" wide to 72" wide. 4.  What size is a fat quarter of wool?  Well, if you've been playing with quilting cottons you know that a fat quarter of cotton is 18 x 22.  But since wools vary in width there is no industry standard for a fat quarter -- which is why I made up on my own terms for our fabric sizes.  For example, a Corder is 9" x 50", a Chubby is 16" square, Charms are 5" square, our Chunks are 9 x 10" and our Curlers are 4 x 16".  That is the size you receive not the size I started with.
