As we close out 2016 we wish you a happy holiday and a healthy and prosperous 2017.
We celebrate your support of Fit for Art Patterns with this year in review:

August – Held our first Sew! Let’s Get Dressed retreat in Baltimore. Here Rae does a fitting for Priscilla and her ponte knit pants. Join us for our Knit Workshop in January!
October – Carrie finished her French Jacket and wore it at the ASDP national conference in Vancouver BC. Fit for Art Patterns was a proud sponsor.
November – Began work on a new Pants Details Pattern and a new Knit Variation which will be presented in 2017.
December – Hosted June Colburn for a program for the Baltimore ASDP on Japanese Textile Traditions that included trips to two museum exhibits.
Also, a special word of thanks to those who invited us to present trunk shows and classes:
Grand Rapids ASG, Central PA ASG, Buffalo NY ASG, Capital Quilts in Gaithersburg MD, Needle and Thread in Gettysburg PA, and Lilies of the Field in Easton MD.
These Central PA ASG members worked on pants one weekend and everyone had a fine mock up and adjusted pattern by the time they went home.
Memories of Buffalo NY with their ASG Chapter in September!
Our friend Nancy at the Grand Rapids ASG Jacket Class in April.
We hope our travels take us to a city where we can catch up with you in 2017! We wish you great enjoyment sewing your modern wardrobe of fun separates with our jacket, knit and pants patterns this year.
All our best, Rae and Carrie
