  1. I am very pleased to see this post and see my name "in print" as one of the contributors of this issue of Asian Fabric magazine. It is a wonderful issue, full of great designs by Georgie Gerl and four guest designers, including me. Great job!

    I do need to point out, however, that in the above post somehow the first two paragraphs got duplicated and inserted into the third paragraph. You might want to clean that up so the post is easier to read. Also my last name has been mispelled - it should be Flanagan.

    Thanks again for a great magazine and for inviting me to be a part of it. I hope I can contribute more designs in the future.
