I am a pattern designer...and fabric designer.....I am a designer.
I am here to inspire, to motivate, to create.
I am the shipping department,
the bookeeper,
the graphics department,

the IT wizard,
the file clerk, the switchboard operator.

I am Natalie Barnes.'s a pleasure to meet you!

most days are spent

designing new fabrics

and new quilts,

searching out inspiration

for both,

and pattern writing, illustrating and editing.
