Thrilled to have stumbled across your site!!! I remember your instructions all too well from my years at Westbrook College (77-79)!!!
I dabbled in sewing for years, but have finally decided to start my own studio to have a legitimate outlet for my work. I recently was invited to participate in an exhibit called 'Talking Heads' 7/13 - 9/13 sponsored by the North Vancouver Community
Arts Council of Vancouver, BC and the Surface Design
Association of BC. All the inspiration that you bestowed on me as a young girl is going to good use, as I work to start-up my studio here in Charlotte, NC. Glad you are bringing all these wonderful finds to everyone still - best wishes - thank you for your mentorship so many years ago!

Hi! My husband and I have designed a unique wallet and we are looking for someone who could make a pattern and sew it for us. I would like to inquire if you are doing such. If not, do you know anyone whose business is into making pattern and sewing simple wallet projects? Thank you and looking forward to hearing from you.

Kathy, Thanks for your nice comments. Glad you like my patterns. I'm sorry to say I can't help you with the Mystery Jacket--I don't have copies of it. I no longer work for the company and the magazine has been discontinued. The magazine was owned by DRG/House of White Birches in Indiana.

I love your patterns. I was going back through some magazines that I have and there is a beautiful Mysstery Jacket pattern. Unfortunately I did not get all of the magazines to get all the parts of the pattern. It is from 2006. Is there any way I can get the parts that I am missing?
