Just place items into your shopping cart, then select Save Cart "Wish List" Enter your e-mail address and the e-mail address of the person you want to send your "hint" to along with a message.

Benefits of creating an account
If you want a time saving feature of your billing and shipping info to be saved for future purchases, create an account the first time you make a purchase. When you create an account, you will just need to remember your login id and password to access your account for future purchases as your shipping and billing address information will be saved along with information on past orders. This is handy when you want to remember what you purchased here. It is especially helpful with international orders.
If you forget your account password, we will have it e-mailed to you from the account log-in page. When you visit the store to make future purchases, or to revisit your wishlist, go to the Manage Account page and log in to use your saved shipping and billing information to check out. (Of course for security purposes and PCI compliance, your credit card information is never saved and must be entered each time you purchase.)
Each time you select an item and place it in your cart, the default is to display the full cart contents. However, for quick and easy shopping, you can change your cart options to not display the full shopping cart each time you add an item (which means you can browse through a department and choose multiple items from that department without leaving a particular page). In the view cart page, just toggle the Cart Option setting to your preferred shopping method and click on update cart.
We accept Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Discover, and PayPal. If you prefer to purchase offline, we'll also gladly process your order with a credit card or by mail with a money order or bank check. When you complete your order, just choose the "fax" or "mail" payment option to print out an invoice to fax or mail in with your payment.

Pat has had an online store since she lived in the Silicon Valley in the late ‘90s. She has been a quilter for over 30 years; although her first quilt (which she still has) is stupendously badly made. She has loved fabric and designing all her life. Her first attempt at a design was on her window shade, to the dismay of her parents. Despite being an artist at heart, visual arts second, and playing piano by ear first, she managed to earn a Bachelor’s degree in Business, due to the uncertainty of the economy in the 1980s and looking forward to gainful employment. Since there were few jobs available in the rust belt, she moved west to California, where she resided for 17 years. After graduating from Santa Clara University, and marrying in its Mission, she decided that due to her flawed “tact” gene, she’d be better off not working for corporate America. She made her way to the top immediately by owning her own business. Making handcrafted products was the first phase of the business, but when she found that others shared her love of fabric, she decided to make them available to others. She has made her home in Arizona since 2001 with the love of her life (with her on the left), and formerly fur-machine Mopsy (below right). Mopsy's crocheted clone is now with us.
