6 1/2 year old says this studio "is the coolest!"

Clay Davis, daughter of & my friend, Becky Davis came by the Studio after Becky ran in the Idiotarod.  Clay who is 6 1/2 years old, along with Becky, my friend Ginger & Ginger's god daughter Che helped me move my big table to its new resting place.... later that day Clay was overheard to say "That's my friend Pattiy. She has the coolest store in Asheville." Just melts the heart.

Fabric Shopping in the ATL

The Cotrice Collection gal, Cotrice, on the left, hooked me up with a great new matte jersey source while i was in Atlanta this past weekend.  Came home with a bunch of great fabrics that will become mostly new skirts for spring just in time for the CURVE studios & garden Spring 2011 Open House Weekend & Twilight Party coming up April 22nd to 24th.  Please save this date!

"Horizon" the third in the Quiet series

Miss Pickles in front of "Horizon"
I started a series of quilts that are "quiet" several years ago.  I am back with them again... with "Subtle" & "Horizon" so far with one more coming I hope.  Turns out "Quiet"was purchased thru The Signature Shop in Atlanta, GA by a client who has come back asking for 1 maybe 2 maybe three more larger versions... The serendipity here is that i came back to this color palate before i knew of this client's interest.  Some time i love how the world works.  Support is all around us.  This is a good thing.

I was a VCU Basketball Cheerleader

The New Website

It is time to make a web presence for Pattiy Torno @ CURVE.  I guess I should not be surprised but I continue to be grateful that I have an ongoing business such that I need a web site.  So here goes...
