CORRECTION TO 3/18/18 HOTFLASH!

 

This Hotflash incorrectly stated that the Collection 7 Kim Diehl patterns were available for sale as a set. This is incorrect. Patterns are only available in conjunction with the kit of fabric from Kim Diehl’s new line Helping Hands.
We apologize for any confusion on this item.
