Susie Tate of Millican, TX created this exquisite Triple Play as a Christmas gift for her daughter who loves bees! Suzie says she’s been sewing & quilting for years but that this was her very 1st attempt at bag-making. Didn’t she do a GREAT job?

And just in case you didn’t notice, Patricia Strobl is a big-time fan of all things “West Virginia” (even though she currently hails from Fairmont, TX), and I bet she’s having lots of fun carrying this fun-loving Everyday Attache!

Gay Anderson stopped by our booth at the Road 2 California Quilter’s Conference to show me her ultra-modern Odyssey! She said it was her “all-time favorite purse”!
And Jan Strickler of Cypress, TX is back with yet another gorgeous  bag entry! This time she fashioned a springlike exterior  for our Everyday Attache!
And speaking of Odyssey’s, here’s an especially fun edition of our Odyssey pattern! It was created by Diane Jones Straus of Midway City, CA. Diane also dropped by our Road 2 CA booth to show it off and who can blame her, right?
And this elegant Gadabout was created by Mary-Lou Wightman of Surry, BC, Canada, who said that this may have been her first Gadabout, but it won’t be her last! She said the bag went together easy and she’ll definitely be making MORE!
Karen McMillan of Salem, VA said that this Everyday Attache was her very 1st StudioKat Designs bag. She made it as a Christmas gift for her daughter and is now making plans to make one for herself!




And finally, this classic Triple Play was lovingly made by Nancy Davis. I love her fabric choices and the thin cording she chose to use on the bag top!

So…there you have it!
