    Hi Pam,
    Is there anywhere I can buy the Amazing Alphabet book in New Zealand as the postage adds quite a lot.
    I’m doing your Wandering Whimsy class at Symposium in Auckland. Will you, by any chance, be bringing any copies of the alphabet book to NZ with you?
    I love the designs in the book and I’m really looking forward to your class.

    1. Pam Holland says:

      Yes I will Marion.

      1. Hi Pam, saw the article in Applique society. I am also crazy for Bayeux Tapestry and lecture and teach about it. Have done multiple section from the Bayeux Broderie kits by Chantel James. Loke your idea of doing it too. Have visited it almost yearly for a long time and always get a new perspective

      2. Pam Holland says:

        Super Cathy. I study it continuously. I was supposed to be there in September. But that won’t happen.

  3. Marion Hamilton says:

    Fantastic. Please save me a copy.

    1. Darlene Korkan says:

    Hi Pam. I tried your Adobe Sketch on the iPad today. All went went except I missed a step so when I went to remove the photo behind the sketch everything disappeared. Will try again later more carefully. Fran

    1. Pam Holland says:

      Fran, It’s probably still there, just check if the little eye in the right hand corner is crossed… if it is, then click it to open it. It locks the image when it’s crossed.

      1. Fran Cox says:

        Thank you Pam I am still learning all this new technology, have to keep up with it. 10 year old grandson showed me how to airdrop photos to his iPad last week. Another new thing learnt.

    I don’t know how I got your blog today but I was very pleased to receive it especially since I am going to Houston tomorrow. and will see all these beautiful pieces in person. Your blog includes the fantastic portrait, the long Goodbye, that was so artistically done by Lea McComas. I am thrilled to see it since this was taken from a pjoto of my parents. I am sure I will see it often during my stay in Houston. Excuse my now while I go wipe the tears from my eyes. It is such an emotional piece. I will fully explore your blog at a later time!

    Dear Pam Holland
    I fell in love with your textile art. I m an artist at 65 years old. But just realizing what I like to do is illustration, embroider, photography, landscape painting. I was thinking one day how can I use all this.

    I m a christian and I have a friend who is a missionary to Guatemala. I was watching television and a program designation craft with Jim West was on and talking about Guatemala. Then you came on at the end and I though wow look at that. So I looked up your website. Im so excited. Just to take you for your identity in art.
    Thank you for your ideas and teaching too with iPad and camera. Everything. I will be looking at forward to viewing more of you, Im a fan. Thanks

  21. suzanne says:

    Do you have any plans to complete your alphabet series by adding their heads? love the few I saw.

    1. Pam Holland says:

      Still working on them, thanks for asking.

  22. Lynda Treger says:

    Hello Pam, I am purchasing your Alphabet book online. I live in USA and unsure of the correct postage to click: what’s ‘US’ mean? It’s $8 as opposed to 36.xx for international. What’s US mean? USA? Thanks you, Lynda Treger

    1. Pam Holland says:

      Linda, it is sent from the USA and it is $8 I think.

  23. Hi Pam — I took your cheese cloth portrait class at Houston, two years ago and am now finally getting down to making my own pattern of an elephant and all his wrinkles. I have the pattern on the vellum, but now am trying to remember how to get it on the cheese cloth. Also when do I put the Mistyfuse on the cheese cloth? Thanks so much for your help.

    1. Pam Holland says:

      Hey Patty, can you send me an email and I will talk you through it.

  25. Connie Reilly says:

    Pam, when you refer to coloring the fabric background with “pigmented ink”, what is the ink you are using?

    1. Pam Holland says:

      Connie, it could be a number of pigments. Sometimes I use inktense blocks, sometimes pencils, often I use Fabrico pens or bottles of ink.

  26. Diane Wiscott says:

    Hello I would like to take a “Cat Thread Painting” class from you. I live in San Diego county. Are you going to be teaching in California or near my state in the next year? Thank you, Diane Wiscott

    1. Pam Holland says:

      Cheers pam

    Pam, I am planning on joining the zoom meeting for the jetty quilt. I have the details for the meeting and the zoom login. I don’t know what the timings are for the meeting and I can’t find and email address to ask you for it. I am in NSW and worried that I will miss the meeting due to the time difference

    1. Pam Holland says:

      I will send a reminder next week.

  28. Sue Smith says:

    Hi Pam, I’m doing your Frida class in Adelaide at Quilt Encounter. Is it possible that I do my wall hanging only 36” wide. That’s all the wall space I have in my sewing room for display. So looking forward to your class. Cheers Sue Smith.

    1. Pam Holland says:

      Sue, yes that’s fine. you can make it as big or as small as you want.

I so love your art, your energy, your talent, your sharing, your kindness for us who need help, your ….. the list could go on and on! Just thank you for sharing. I’ve had the Geraldine pattern for years and purchased everything I need to make her BUT… she’s still waiting. Thank you for you for sharing your fabulous talent! Maryjo Harrell, Utah, USA
