   I’m pleased to announce that I will be designing exclusively for Troy’s  Riverwoods Collection!  I’ve worked with Dorothy and Terry Troy for years, and I’m thrilled to be part of their team!    We are already hard at work on my first fabric collection and will be shipped later this year.  I’ll share photos as soon as I can.

I”ll be presenting at Troy’s Fabriganza in October and will be in their booth at Quilt Market.  If you are attending either, please come by to see what’s new and say hello!



Happy 4th of July to all  from the Combs’ family!


(Sorry, this is the best photo I could get, Cocoa would not look at me!  But you will notice both of the “boys” are sporting their 4th of July looks.  Cocoa in a red and white striped bandana and Benji is in a blue and silver stars. )

What a wonderful surprise to hear from Darra Williamson yesterday!  I’ve known her forever and am honored to be featured in her new blog: Sew How We Sew!

 Her blot is a collective  endeavor; with her “sister-bloggers” are Laura Nownes, Christie Batterman, and Jennifer Rounds.  It features how to videos and wonderful posts.  Darra will be giving away a copy of Rodale’s Favorite Techniques from the Experts.  Be sure to check it out!

Thanks Darra, loved hearing from you and congratulations on the new blog!
