Prince: 1958 - 2016

2016 has been full of loss.

Today, the Fandom in Stitches Designers remember one of the greatest artists of all time the best way we know how: in fabric.

Rest in peace, Prince.

  1. Quite moving. Thank you.

  2. For the Block Purple Rain by Kristi Lehane tested by Jo Minvielle I'm getting the following message: "Puplerain.pdf is unsafe to download and was blocked by SmartScreen Filter.

    I do love these blocks. Would it be all right if I use these blocks to make a wall hanging for my daughter's dance teacher who used Prince's music for many of their dance routines when my daughter was dancing throughout her high school years? Obviously this would NOT be for profit. This would be out of love of his music, love of dance, and love of our dance studio and the instructors there. If so, I'd really like to be able to get access to the block I'm not able to download. Thank you.

    1. We would love for you to use our patterns for a gift. What a lovely idea! Please let me know if are still unable to download Kristi's file.
