Recently I was asked to review an on-line service which promises to make life easier for quilters. The Quilt Pattern Shoppe is an on-line quilt pattern shop with a unique twist: all patterns are available for immediate download. Patterns are searchable by type, designer, and even quilting technique; there are bag patterns, baby quilt patterns, holiday quilt patterns, home decor and even organizational supply patterns. Patterns are also searchable by difficulty level, making this an ideal way for a beginner quilter to choose a pattern.
I know many quilters do a lot of shopping on-line, and being able to instantly down-load a pattern saves not only time waiting for the pattern to arrive but also shipping costs. I think the idea is a great one! Pattern designers can also benefit from this website by arranging to sell their patterns through The Quilt Pattern Shoppe!
