Loudoun Sampler Guild Holiday Gathering

Thanks to Kathleen Oliver for organizing such a fun event. 
It was great meeting so many stitchers and other artisans. 
What an inspirational day!
 Here is my sister Kathy Barrick with her one-of-a kind jewelry pieces! 
They are stunning!
Carriage House Samplings shared a table with Kathy's "French Sentiments."


  1. Looks like lots of fun!!! Love the models, the girls are on my short list :-).

  2. I was so very nice to meet you Marty and what a delight to have you and Kathy both join us for the festivities- glad to know you enjoyed your day...
    Looking forward to seeing your new designs in 2011!

  3. Hi! I' m Sandybell, from Bari, Italy! I like so much Kathy' s pattern. Especially, I' m looking for "WESTWINDS": I love it very, very much, but I know that it' s an old pattern... however, I would like to ask you if it is still aviable. I hope to receive your answer as soon. Thanks so much! Hugs, Sandy.

  4. Yes! ALL of Kathy's designs -- old and new -- are available. Hoffman Distributors has been ordering many charts lately, keeping Tim very busy. If you can't find a source for the chart you're looking for, please order through our website:
