Blue Ribbon Designs

Needlework/Quilting is my passion, obsession, and career.

My Full-time Job:
Blue Ribbon Designs was established in 2004; I specialize in original counted thread cross stitch patterns and quilting designs along with specialty hand finishing of needlework smalls, custom quilting projects, and teaching needlework/sewing/quilting techniques.

My Etsy Shop:
Several years into my cross stitch design career, I found I needed another creative outlet that wasn't part of my needlework business; with my love for fabric and threads, sewing and quilting was the logical leap. I love to spend hours sewing and crafting....and I tend to make multiples of every item I create. In 2012, I decided it was time to put my creative energy to work and open an Etsy shop - here you will find all sorts of my personal sewing, quilting, and crafting items - many derived from my own original patterns/designs. Most of my pieces are one of a kind - each one is special and unique! You will also find the complete Blue Ribbon Designs chart/pattern/design catalog...crafting/creating supplies...and vintage needlework books...

Personal Notes:
I currently reside in Spring Hill, Kansas with my husband and our “kids” - an all-black German Shepherd named Schatzi and a sable German Shepherd named Garin. I am a private person....a self-proclaimed control freak...most times a perfectionist....beyond organized....super analytical....and a little bit obsessive compulsive. I have a deep passion for all things done with a needle and thread - a lover of fabrics, fibers, trims, embellishments, and textiles. I am an admirer of the creative, unique, and artistic. I enjoy the outdoors, nature, and fitness - along with reading about and studying antiques, textiles, and historic needlework...along with quilting, sewing, machine embroidery, papercrafts, and crafting (in general).

Finding a Digital Pattern Purchase

If you have an Etsy account, after your purchase you’ll see a VIEW YOUR FILES link which goes to the Downloads page. Here, you can download all the files associated with your order.

Downloads are available once your payment is confirmed, confirmation might take a few minutes.

Etsy will also send you a download notification email separate from any transaction notification emails you receive (check your spam or junk folder).

Please note that you can't download a digital purchase through the Etsy app. To download a digital file, please sign in to Etsy on your mobile browser or a non-mobile computer.

If purchased a digital item as a GUEST (don't have an Etsy account), a link to download your purchase will be in the receipt email.

Difficulty Downloading a Digital Pattern Purchase

Etsy handles all technical issues, however, try these suggestions for a quick resolution. I have found most issues are due to web browser capabilities - I would start by trying a different web browser.

Trying one of these may resolve your issue:
• Try a different web browser.
• Disable any browser add-ons or tool bars (example, some virus protection add-ons block downloads).
• Try a different device (try a different PC, laptop, tablet or mobile browser on a cell phone).
• Clear your cache/cookies.
• Make sure your virus protection software is not blocking the download.
• Reboot your system.
