A note about "Popup Blockers" and this site.

Built on the shoulders of my mother's company (Calico 'N Things), CNT Pattern Co. is very much a homegrown business. As sole proprietor, I'm one of those lucky kids who got the opportunity to return to the soft down of mother's wing. The knowledge she shares with me provides the base on which my company is standing.

With over 25 years in the quilting business, mom has owned a quilt store, worked directly with Amish elders to distribute Amish quilts, and created Calico 'N Things, a home-based business for mail order quilting supplies -- which later grew to distributing wearable-art clothing patterns and fabric.

After moving close enough to my home in Aspen to fully enjoy her grandchild, my mother encouraged me to produce patterns for her company. I had taught school, run my own school and written a book titled "Building Self-Esteem For Decision Making: A How-To Handbook for Parents and Educators of Young Learners - Ages 3-7" (now there's a mouthful). With a desire to build a little more self-esteem of my own, I decided to follow my mother's suggestion. This Web site is the latest chapter in building my business and exploring new opportunities.

I hope you enjoy this site and our patterns,
Karen Nye

Through the years, I have learned that most individuals thrive on creative problem solving. My goal has been to develop a product that embraces and challenges this human characteristic. CNT Pattern Co. strives to create patterns, with easy to follow directions, that teach specific techniques while creating wearable art!

I think you'll find that, in addition to style, all of my patterns are designed for comfort, flexibility and durability. I hope you enjoy making and wearing them as much as I've enjoyed designing them.

Look for us at these sewing and quilt shows.
