other stuff...

Well what a week so far.  Gorgeous notebooks from 1973, Ribbon Squirrel and Pawling Print Studio (I've put one on my  Christmas list already) started the week off.

If that didn't make you want to go shopping, marimekko took us down to the woods for some autumn pattern peeks on tuesday.  Yesterday woke us up with some glorious neon from Thrifted and Modern, Ktaadn and LEFTright, which made me dig out my neon markers immediately !  And of course the week isn't over yet.

Lots of you are preparing for shows at the moment, either to exhibit or to visit, and Top Drawer, Tent and 100%Design are all on the horizon.  If this sounds like you then you will love tomorrow's 'weekend starts here' interview with the guys at Mini Moderns.  I caught up with them last week and found out about their inspiration, what it's like to put your work out there at a big show, and their number one tip for a first time exhibitor.  

Pattern booth doesn't usually post on a sunday, but this week is an exception.  We will be bringing you something a bit different on sunday.  The brilliant Passion 4 Pattern Blog Hop.

If you've never been on a blog hop before then I'd urge you to come along and have a look.  Starting with one great pattern blog you get to skip your way through a string of posts stuffed full of inspiration.  The blog hop brings you posts from 51 new designers brought together from around the world for this event.  You won't like all of them, but you are bound to love some of them!  Pattern booth is up early in the running order so have a look on sunday morning and you can join in from here.  Don't forget to let us know what you think of the blogs you see.
