There's wooly magic in the air!
in the Patch designs
....Where we Color your World with Creativity!  

Change is the one constant since the waters covered the earth and isn't the blue ball on which we live a beautiful thing to behold?!

Here at in the Patch designs, we have always been on a forward progressive path.  And the desire to offer creative wool products that inspire and encourage the making of more magic is our catalyst for change.

So what has changed (or will)?
Let me tell you!

1.  MOVED!  That's right; we have moved.  We have moved from our Troy, Ohio home to a temporary home in Lake Ariel, PA.
Since it is a temporary home, we do not as of yet have a phone number but you can still contact us at:  info@inthepatchdesigns.

IF you need to phone in your orders, no problem; email me your request along with your phone number.  I'll give you a buzz & we will be able to take care of your needs/wants/needs =).

2.  There was a temporary delay in the fulfilment of orders due to Mitch & I driving back and forth from Ohio to PA in a 28' truck (2x's) with our business AND our personal items.  We did it in two weeks but now we have to unpack the workroom and get back at it!

3.  And for now -- that's all.  BUT it's really not ALL.  I have some incredible NEWS to announce coming in MAY so please check back, sign up for our newsletter and stop by our FB page.  

Until then, thanks for allowing us to be a part of your wooly creations, for sharing your lovelies with us and for creating with us for over 15 years.  It has been a wonderful journey on a creative road!!

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.
