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!

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.
