Very exciting news. Meet Aria Lane…

Back in September 2012, I began designing a few quilts behind the scenes, and knew eventually that someday I would like to turn them into patterns. I began brainstorming ideas for how I would go about selling the patterns, and my little idea somehow turned into a big one. If you have been around Pile O' Fabric for any length of time you know that I have a tendency to do that, haha.

Meet Aria Lane

After months and months of hard work I am so very excited to introduce to you, Aria Lane. I want to thank my friend Emily, sister Holly for all your hard work on Aria that last few months it would not have been possible without you! Aria Lane is a modern design company that produces original modern quilt and embroidery patterns for the crafting community.

Mission and Goal

At Aria Lane our ultimate goal is to provide quality modern patterns for all you modern creatives out there. Here are some of the ways we are doing this
Clean Pattern Design  Of course the most important part of a successful pattern is a brilliant fantastic product, but another very important part of a pattern is the actual pattern itself.  You will find NO hand written instructions, and no Microsoft Word Docs at Aria Lane. Our patterns are designed to be clean, organized, easy to read, and easy to follow. Tested, Tested, and Tested Again We have recruited over 25 people who are now on our list of testers. Each quilt pattern will be tested by multiple people of multiple skill levels. For example theConcerto pattern has six sizes and we assigned one person, each of a different skill level to each size.
Easy and Fun to Shop The Aria Lane website is beautiful, clean, and makes shopping for patterns an easy and fun experience. Our PDF patterns are emailed instantly after purchase, so you can begin working on your project right away even at 3am!

The Future of Aria Lane

We are just beginning to bloom here at Aria Lane, and hope for much growth in the future. Ultimately, I would love to see Aria Lane produce, distribute, advertise and promote modern patterns from many creative and talented product designers. What do does that mean for customers? A wonderful assortment of modern quality patterns from amazing designers all together in one company. What exactly does that mean for designers? Well we can leave the product designers to do what they do best, and take care of the logistics (laying out the pattern design, copywriting, testing, marketing, printing, advertising) to Aria Lane.

For the next few days I will be featuring the two collections we currently have, and giving away some patterns here on Pile O' Fabric. We don't have a ton of patterns yet, but we will be rolling out quite a few more quilt patterns, and a new embroidery collection very soon! We would absolutely love it if you stopped on by Aria Lane and checked out or new shop, maybe even picked out a pattern or two. You can also follow us via social media to be updated when we do launch our new collections. Orsign up for our newsletter. Thank you so much for your support and I do hope you will join us on this adventure!
