Patricia Mallard and I have been friends and colleagues for over 20 years. We were in business together and she taught me everything I know about hand stitching and quilting. Although there is a big geographical distance between us, we still manage to work together in a different capacity. Patricia does a lot of the unseen work that goes into this business, ranging from helping me write patterns, to many hours of embroidery and hand quilting. It’s a pleasure to introduce my Bestie, ‘Patty’, and her designs through Just Stitchin’.
