Stay at Home and Hop – Meet Some of My Favorite Friends! – Post #1

Welcome to our Virtual Designer Shop Hop!  The word is to stay at home so why not just stay at home and hop with us!?!Print

These are extraordinary times we are living through and and many of us are no doubt stitchin’ up a storm at home:  perhaps starting new projects, completing those in progress or finding some beloved UFO’s from long ago that require nothing more than a seam here or there to complete them.

But with all that stitchin’ goodness, I bet you wouldn’t mind taking a break….right?   Yup! I thought so !  Good!

Carl and I feel so lucky to be part of this amazing quilting community filled with wonderful quilt shops, quilting guilds, Facebook QuiltAlongs, and best of all, my fellow pattern designers who are always coming up with new techniques and patterns  to use up our stash and make gorgeous quilts, handbags or garments !

So for these next ten days,  I want to take an opportunity to introduce to you to some of my favorite quilting colleagues.  A great many of them of have been in industry as long as we, but many are new and just starting out!  All of these quilty businesses are super eager to greet you – our stay at home hoppers – and are offering you super special greetings and/or incentives when you hop over to their websites!

I have over forty websites to share with you but let’s start with these ten first…

I’ll be back in touch with you within a few days to share more!  Now go forth and explore and have fun!  You never know what you might discover!!

PrintHi Quilty Peeps!

No doubt like me, all of your upcoming quilty events have been postponed or cancelled and you find yourself now stitchin’ up a storm at home! Why not take a break and join me on a virtual pattern designer shop hop!?!

Starting on Saturday, March 21st, I’ll introduce you to some of my favorite quilty friends in the quilting industry!!  Starting this Saturday, I’ll invite you to explore the newest offerings, patterns and notions from my fellow colleagues. You’ll meet new pattern designers, explore new quilting websites, and perhaps make a purchase or two along the way. All of them have something unique to offer to you!!

With new and exciting sites to explore throughout the week, you’ll be happy you took and break and virtually hopped and shopped with all of our new friends!

You can follow along in the fun by just subscribing to my Colourwerx Blog (on the right) or subscribe to my Colourwerx Newsletter.  Every few days, I’ll send you a list of links to my friends’ websites for you to discover and explore and shop right at home!

Until then, stay safe and be sane!  XXOO L&C
