We've been getting a lot of questions recently about when Patrick's going to get around to designing some new fabric collections for you. Truth be told, he never stopped but we've been keeping it under wraps until we could share some exciting news with our loyal customers, followers, and friends. Guess what?!
Patrick Lose Fabrics is now a division of Northcott!
Northcott is a leading quilt fabric manufacturer with worldwide distribution and a strong and dedicated network of sales representatives throughout the United States and Canada. That means your local quilt shops and fabric retailers will be seeing Patrick's new collections in a timely manner, so they can offer them to you! We are thrilled to partner with such a well-respected, trusted, and forward-thinking company as Northcott.
Patrick's first collections, including a slew of colorful new blenders and his Halloween and Christmas 2021 lines will debut to shop owners and buyers in October. So be sure to tell your LQS that you'd like to have them take a look and offer the latest from Patrick Lose Fabrics.
We've heard most often from our Celebrations in Quilting readers and subscribers, hoping to be able to make the projects they see in each issue from the same fabrics we used. With that in mind, Patrick designed many of the projects for the Fall 2020 issue using fabrics from the current collections by Northcott and Banyan Batiks, another division of Northcott. Check out your LQS if you're inspired to use the same fabrics in the projects you choose to make from the issue and if you can't find them there, visit PatrickLose.com because we'll be carrying them in our online shop for those who can't find them locally. You'll begin to see some of Patrick's blenders and holiday prints for 2021 in our winter issue—the first of VOLUME 3—coming in just a couple of months!
In the past, it's been difficult to provide you with information about what shops have our collections when you've contacted us looking for them, because shop owners were ordering through distributors and we didn't have their customer information. It's exciting to us that Northcott has a great Product Finder feature on their site, so it will be much easier for you to check on the website to see if your LQS carries what you're looking for. Of course, we still want you to feel free to contact us if you have questions. Our contact info is below.
While the world's been turned upside down this year, we've spent the time developing lots more products to inspire you and keep your creative spirit busy during this time. Our evolution into this new partnership with Northcott was driven by our commitment to provide the very best quality and service when you choose Patrick Lose fabrics.
Thank you so much for your support over the past 27 years of Patrick’s career as a designer in the quilting and crafting industries. He always says the best is yet to come!
Please stay safe and healthy and enjoy the rest of your summer.
