    Would you happen to know where I can purchase the pattern of Old Fashion Ladies Design by Phillips-Shwallon

  2. Linda S. says:

    I’m sorry, Rita, I do not. I did a search for it and came up with nothing. There are several Yahoo and Google groups concentrating on embroidery… that would be a good place to start asking.

    Thanks for stopping by…

    I can’t seem to find them on your site,
    Thank you, JoAnn

    I bought a Karen Phillips-Swallon Welcom pattern and wondered if there was a color key available. I didn’t take a picture of the sample at the show where I saw it, but it was breath taking and wanted to replicate it. Thanks for your help.

    For all of you requesting info on Karen Phillips Swallon, here is a url from a crazy quilting site I love.. this is all I know about her. There is an email address at the bottom of the page.

    I just read this article and I know it is a year later, but I thought I would tell you what I know about Karen. I have been to several of her classes and she lives around the Pittsburgh area. Karen travels to Marietta, Ohio once a month to give classes and I know she travels to other places to give classes. We are working on her Welcome now and it is beautiful when completed. If someone would like her telephone number please e-mail me at and I will look the number up for you. I hope I am allowed to put my e-mail address her and I am not breaking any rules.
