Way back in 1999, on January 11th, I took a deep breath and launched my little pattern company. Ten years later, in June of 2009, I launched my web site, and started my blog.
Wow, what a ride it’s been!
At the 10-year mark, I introduced a Welcome Banner pattern to celebrate; and again, at the 15-year mark, I introduced another Welcome Banner pattern. So guess what?
Now that we’ve reached the 20-year mark, I couldn’t let it pass uncelebrated, so I’m introducing another Welcome Banner pattern to celebrate 20 years!
This pattern was one of the bonus projects included in my first-ever Block-of-the-Month program, which is now out of print. Rather than let it languish in the archives, I’ve revived it to use for celebrating our 20th anniversary.
You can do the center portion using your favorite method of appliqué, and adding the borders is super quick and easy. The pattern is available as a PDF pattern in my Etsy Shop, and like the previous celebratory Welcome banner patterns, will always be only $5. Forever.
And since 20 years is kind of a big deal for me, I’m having a give-away!
I’m giving away 20 — yes, 20 — copies of the pattern (in PDF format — so it will get emailed to you), and all you have to do if you want to have a chance at getting one, is leave a comment on this post. If I get more than 20 comments, I will draw randomly for 20 winners. Your odds are pretty good for this one! I’ll draw for the winners on February 12th.
And just for reference, here are the two previous Welcome Banners . . . this one for our 10th anniversary:
And this one for our 15th:
All these patterns are available in my Etsy Shop, always for only $5.
Thanks for reading and visiting! Thanks for being around to help us celebrate 20 years!
And the WINNERS are . . .
I emailed out all the patterns to the address you left in your comment. If you see your name on the list, but you didn’t receive the email, please check your spam folder. Thanks, everyone, for all the kind comments and playing along!
