About Our Intarsia Patterns

  • All of our patterns have been made into Intarsia by Judy prior to offering them to the public. People deserve a pattern that has been shop tested.
  • Patterns are printed in Red Ink and printed on a very high quality tracing paper.
  • Patterns come with a 8 1/2" x 11" color print of the finished piece and a set of basic instructions for making Intarsia
  • Our patterns are NEVER FOLDED, they are rolled up and mailed in a strong cardboard mailing tube to prevent creases and wrinkles.
  • All of our patterns and products are shipped insured.

"Most people do not realize I design the patterns we have for sale. Visitors will come by our studio and see the pencil sketches and ask if I draw these patterns. At first I thought that was odd, although we do not mention where the designs come from.

Each pattern starts out with a pencil shaded version of the intarsia pattern. I like to work out the coloring and I'll use my pencil to shade in areas for the shaping aspect. When I am shaping the piece I will have my pencil sketch on the wall as a reference. I also like to have as many pictures of the subject matter as possible, especially when I am not familiar with the subject.

While I am working on the piece I will make notes if I need to change the grain direction or smooth out some lines to make it easier to cut. I think this is one of the most important steps to ensure the best quality pattern for my customers. After the project is completed I make any necessary changes on the pattern before offering for sale."
