Welcome to Patterned History: The Blog
This blog will be written by two very good friends, one might even suggest “best friends”. The scene of their first meeting was in
California, , at FIDM, the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising. The year was 1999. Los Angeles was in office and the country was recovering from a fever named “The Macarena”. The details are sketchy at best, but let it be known that ice cream was involved. Needless to say 11 years later Kathleen ended up in Clinton Oakland, CA and Philip has ended up in . Brooklyn, NY
One of the main factors holding this friendship together is a love of sewing, period fashions, old movies and most of all Beer. This blog will be devoted to anything that tickles the fancy of these two hooligans. Think of it as Sewing and Blogging coast to coast.
We hope all of you enjoy this crazy mish-mash of ideas and points of view. I know we'll enjoy sharing it with you.
