As you know, PR will complete 8 years this Friday!!! I also promised to announce the PR Award winners the same day. So what do you say to a virtual chat party in the chat room on Friday, November 28th 9 pm eastern time.

I can hardly contain myself until then. You guys voted very well.

Who's bringing what? I am bringing party streamers, decorations, and of course a b'day cake.

Each year in November I am reminded of that night when I came back from vacation and saw my email box flooded with responses about PatternReview.com and what a great site it would be. Well we're still here 8 year later.

So lets have a post thanksgiving party and celebrate and honor the craft of SEWING! Who's in?

OMG! It seems only yesterday that PR was only *this* tall!



OK, I've not been a member since the early days, but I sure am glad PR exists and is the site that it is today!

There's much to celebrate; I'm in!

Congratulations, Deepa! I'm so happy that you started this website. It's the single place I check EVERY day. I love the inspiration, the practical information, the great tips, and the chance to see what everyone else is doing . . .

Congratulations Deepika!

I've been with you for 5 years now and have enjoyed every minute of it! As a matter of fact... it has gotten even better with time! You read my mind with the photo gallery and that is the first thing I check everyday. And since I've been on sick leave for 4 months, I spend a lot of time here!

Thank you, Best Wishes, and continued success for the most informative and fun sewing site out there!

~ Angie

Congratulations on eight years!

This is great. The rum will be provided, so I will bring the ice cream, cake, and the entertainment.

Hope to see everyone Friday night.

It's tequila, not rum. I must have been imbibing early.

I'll have to try and figure out what that time will be in New Zealand. Probably some unearthly hour on Saturday morning. Congratulations, I haven't been a member that long but PR is now a very important part of my life. I spend way too much time checking out all the different threads. I feel I have friends all over the world. Can't wait to find out who the PR award winners are.

I remember when PR was a light bulb over Dee's head back on the now-defunct Sewing World web site. I will try to stop in, but we are hitting the road early Saturday morning. So will someone please enjoy the cake for me? Thanks! :-)

I remember those discussions too. Deepika was so excited about putting together a simple site together to share pattern reviews. I'm sure she had no idea what a community of friends she was creating. I've been part of PR since the early days and I miss old friends who've moved on and am thrilled to see so many new friends here. This is really a special place to be. It's where I came when my mother was dying and where I go when I can't figure out some alteration or when I want to share something I've found. I'm looking forward to the party. See you all there.
