Where oh where did January go?
Here in the PATCH NYC studio, the first month of 2014 was a blizzard-like blur of activity as we put the finishing touches on a new collection to present at the NY NOW show. While the snow was piling up outside, we were inside creating our own piles of beads and fabric as we designed new jewelry, scarves, bags and pillows. Oh, and we managed to fit in time to create some new original art to show as well. Phew.

The holiday season is zooming towards that double whammy crescendo of celebrations, Christmas and New Years, yet we feel like we just finished clearing the table from the Thanksgiving feast. Guess time truly does fly when one is having fun! Before tearing off that last calendar page of 2013, we want to share some images from another magical season in the shop. We wish everyone a wonderful holiday and all the very best in the new year!
