Pat Virch turns 80 on September 29!!

Here are messages from some well wishers:

...........................
Perhaps 15-20 years ago I learned of Pat Virch and her books, but was
unable to find one to buy. So…I found her address and wrote her. She
was so kind to not only send me a book…a original…she wrote on it
for me. I treasure that book and others I have bought since then.

She is one of rosemaling’s treasures…

Happy Birthday to Pat! Is there any chance she is still teaching?

I have several of her books, bought the hard way on Ebay. :-) If you have a
list could you send it to me?

Wonderful, wonderful books she did! I’m a big admirer!

I was able to purchase one of Pat’s books on e-bay. It has a lot of great designs. I feel priviledged to have it. And I’ll be sure to send her birthday wishes!
