I entered a contest to win a pattern for a tote bag from Urban Arts and Crafts. I won one of the 5 copies of the pattern. However, the store is closing after 12 years. When UAC was in the River Market and I worked downtown I would often walk down there and shop and sign up for classes. I have a lot of good memories from 12 years of classes and shopping. I went today and got some farbric to make one of the bags and I also went shopping in my stash to find some fabric. You will have to wait for progress pictures. Please check out the blog from the store owner as she has a lot of great patterns and you can find her on Craftsy as well.
I wish you tons of luck Karen in your new endeavor. Thanks for the great memories, the fun times, Anni the store cat, and making new friends through the class.

Here is the pattern I won. http://www.ialwayspickthethimble.com/2014/10/03/memory-lane-quilted-tote-sewing-pattern/
