Today I'm joining the 50's club and I have a strange mix of feelings. I don't know what to think: if I am already old, if I'm still young --this thing they say that "these days 50's are the old 40's". You may have experienced it already.
Going over my life in my mind as a film rolls at the movies, I could see how many things I went through and how happy and grateful I am about everything I've achieved!
For this occasion thought that a blog post had to have something different about me. Told myself: "Pat, you better come out with something special to share"!
Hope you like it.
All my love,
Hey Guys and Gals,
I just wanted to update you on whats happening @ The Studio. We have been making renovations, adding color, cutting fabric, laughing and really working hard to make an awesome studio that promotes creativity. Some of you that follow us on Facebook (and if you don’t, shame on you!) have seen some of our behind the scenes shots…. That’s what you get for LIKING us!
Once we are done we will post pics… promise!!
Since we made the renovations during the Holidays we weren’t able to get the festive décor out BUT we super excited to be adding some DIY projects and challenges for 2012... YES we said challenges…. So get those sewing machines ready!
Walter and I founded this company some years ago 100% from scratch. We believe that to become better persons we have to project ourselves through hard work and moral values, like honesty and generosity; for us family is number one --I'm sure all of you can relate to this!
We translate this values from our personal lives to our company, loving and puting our passion in everything we do.
Art Gallery Fabrics want to wish everyone a very Happy Holidays!! We hope that you get all that you need and more of what you want this season and a healthy and prosperous 2012!
Pat & Team

Hello my sweet friends!
I must apologize for my looong absence on this blog! A lot has happened in the past few weeks, including my trip to my native Argentina, an expansion of our warehouse/offices, and the usual juggling between fabric design, pattern design, quilt design, you know the drill!
So, I know the girls in the AGF team kept you guys posted on some of the stuff going on here, especially the thing I'm most excited about right now; the BO PEEP SKIRT PATTERN!
I love this pattern and I'm sure you will too!! Featuring double layers & gathering detail on the side, this flirty high-waisted skirt is as easy to wear as it is to make!
The skirt has a zipper on the back of the waist. I thought that because many of you could be a zipper first-timer, a very detailed section with many pictures it's included. Isn't that cool?
You know my CD patterns, they come in a CD containing more than 40-page PDF file with detailed diagrams and step by step hi-resolution pictures. And don't forget that the real size templates are included.
I'm so in love with this skirt! We shot this reaaally cool video promo and I wanna share it with all of you!
What fabric combination do you like most?
This pattern will be available at your local quilt shop next week... but... if you tell me which one is your fave right now you could be taking home THE BO PEEP PATTERN + the FABRIC to make it in your favorite combination free!!!!
Other two winners will be taking the pattern as well (so, 3 winners!)... don't miss the chance!
I'll close the giveaway this Friday this 16th, and will choose the winners randomly.
Oh, and have you stopped by my Facebook Page?? "Like" it and let me know for a double chance on the giveaway, yay!
Have a great week everyone and GOOD LUCK!!!!!
fab here. i'm extremely happy is finally friday! (bet I'm not the only one)
let me tell you a lil' bit about what we've been up to this week: so the thing is, Pat is coming up with this pattern. it's called the "Bo Peep skirt", and it's one of my personal favorites!
actually this pattern started loooong ago (like... a year and somethin'), when we first got the Modern Affair line. this was the first prototype:
then we decided to drop the scallops and make a few more changes. it transformed into this, which we presented for the first time in Houston 2010 as part of our Paradise dreamboard:
and finally, it morphed into this:
so now that is ready to hit the market, we shot this cool video as the promo, with me starring the whole thing, haha! here's a couple of backstage pics:
made with (my favorite) modernology fabric...
with the uber-girly coquette collection...
made with hyperreal garden's awesome "Lush Foliage" print...
and last but not least, with the super-cute bespoken line!
we're all biting our nails here waiting for the video to be ready... which we WILL share as soon as it's done, take my word for it!
hope you enjoyed these little sneek peak! til next time!
