Everyone reaches crossroads in their lives and must make decisions as to which direction to turn. My daughter and I both arrived at a crossroad at the same time. She has decided to close her brick and mortar quilt shop and become an online retailer only. I have found success with my independently published books and patterns and find myself needing more time to keep up with those pursuits. In the near future, you will be able to purchase and download PDF versions of my quilt patterns from her website, www.marinerscompass.com. The patterns will also be available for PDF purchase at QuiltWoman.com in a few months. My books will continue to be available from my website or by emailing me at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you live in Maine, please check with your local independent bookstore or gifts shop, also. Here’s to new adventures!
