Donna Dewberry pattern error?

cat1121November 23, 2007

Has anyone duplicated the Trompe L'oeil folding screen from her book titled 'Decorative Furniture'?

When enlarging the patterns to the specified size(s), they exceed the size of the painting surfaces.

Am I misunderstanding something??

Sorry Cat, I don't have that book so can't be of help. Have you thought about contacting her at her website, or maybe contacting Good luck with your project, hope you will come back and share a pic with us. Luvs

I had tried her website (no response) and just now followed your suggestion to contact the Plaid site.
Thanks so much!

Cat, I found this email address and phone number in one of my One Stroke books. It was listed for info on certification classes, but maybe they could direct you to the right place to get help.

Phone 407-339-0239
Fax 407-339-5513

Plaid should get back to you quite quickly. I had a general question for them about getting some Rub-ons to come off that were stubborn and they replied within a day or two, and even offered to replace the rub-ons which I thought was pretty impressive.

Well, I did hear back from Plaid - it is not their publication - and they were kind enough to give me a toll free number for Dewberry Designs. They were very nice even though they could be of no help.
Apparently I am to 'wing it.'
Thanks all!

Well if there's anything we crafter's know better than the average soul it's how to "wing it"! I'm sure you'll make it look fabulous, Cat!

Hey, Susan - I must have needed to hear that!
Thank you for the vote of confidence. I am certainly and surely going to enjoy this project.
