Here is a rave about the Traveler’s Trio Name Badge Holder (one of three patterns in the Trio)

Do you know I wear the tag holder you gave me on the train every day? Works like a charm holding my monthly ticket. Thanks for (making it for me) again!

Here are some raves about the Two-Hour Tulip Purse Pattern and Template:

Hi Janice,

I received your Tulip Purse Bouquet pattern and template the other day and wanted to tell you how impressed I am with the quality and value of these items. I love that the template is neon green (I can’t tell you how many times I have to search for my clear rulers in a pile of fabric scraps). I also like all the markings and cutouts in the template, wow, does that make things easier!

It is a cool rainy day in Florida today, so I think I will make a purse!

Thank you for such a great product.

Hi Janice,

Just wanted to let you know that I’ve made up two sizes of the bags. I did the larger one in blue and white batik and it turned out real cute! I made the smaller one in black and red batik with shorter handles to look more like an evening bag. It is really cute too. We had dinner Saturday night with my husband’s family for my in-laws 55th wedding anniversary. I wore something to match my little bag! It kept disappearing off the back of my chair…. my mother-in-law kept taking it! Guess I will have to make her one!


Dear Janice,

I just wanted to write you personally and tell you how fun your pattern is.  I taught our Tuesday morning ladies how to make it last week and they really only took 2 hours.  They were happy!!!!  I also love the sample you sent us.  What type of stabilizer and fusible batting did you use?  (Fusible fleece) I did one up before they got here that morning, but it’s not quite as stiff.  Thank you so much.

Hi Janice,

Tulips are my favorite flower and now my favorite purse pattern! I’m loving these purses that I’ve made as samples (for kits). I’ve been using flannels and really like the way they look. Outsides are simple patterns and linings are “lively”. I’m also thinking about adding to the kit another feature I love in purses. . . a dogleash for keys. I just had to let you know what a genius you are!


Hello, I just wanted to tell you that I bought your 2 hr tulip purse pattern at a retreat from Batiks ETC who were vendors. It is one of the best patterns I have every used. Your directions are great and very easy to understand. I have made 4 as Christmas gifts for my granddaughters, three of the standard and one large.

Thanks for a great pattern.
