Dear Shop Owner/Designer:

We want you to know how much we have enjoyed working with all of you. Truly, you are the "key" to the quilting industry and it has been such a pleasure to have served you over the last three years.

As most of you know, Checker has notified any designer (current or prospective) that if they choose to distribute patterns through Patterns Gone Digital (PGD), they would no longer carry or pick up their patterns. As Checker is the "Big Dog" in the quilting industry their decisions have a ripple effect on small startup companies. So with much discussion, much thought, and much sadness, PGD will close its doors (and website) effective April 1, 2014 -- all patterns purchased prior to this date will be honored indefinitely either through the website (until June 1, 2014) or by e-mail to, or by contacting Terry at 801-200-3608.

You can’t afford to compete with Checker, and neither can we!

We would like to THANK all of those who believed in PGD, our concept and our dream. PGD has catapulted the quilting industry into the technology age! Hopefully in the future more shops and designers will take advantage of the cost savings and ease that a company like PGD provides. Again, a huge "THANK YOU" to all who have supported and worked with PGD!

Happy Sewing!!
