Good News for Quilters and Quilting Professionals
Method of Preparing Fabric for Sewing, or for Cutting and Sewing
US Patent 7,814,832 was issued today for the Inklingo method of printing shapes on fabric.
The business model for Inklingo has been designed to benefit all sectors of the quilting industry, not just the inventor. Inklingo offers new opportunities for quilters, designers, teachers, shop owners, online retailers, editors, historians, authors, publishers, programmers, and manufacturers of fabric, sewing machines, supplies, and tools.
The benefits of Inklingo will be significant and widespread. Inklingo is ideally suited to do well in a tough economy. With retail prices ranging from $12 to $50, Inklingo does more and costs less than comparable tools. Inklingo is the quilting tool we’ve always wanted for machine piecing, appliqué, and hand piecing.
The patent will make it easier for Inklingo to expand quickly and to attract partners and affiliates.

We’re celebrating tonight! As Mary would say, “More later!” Thank you for visiting.
Linda (& Monkey & Russ)

YEAH!!! I’m so happy for you! When I read your book and see “patent pending”, I wonder how you were making out with that. Nice to see the notice on your site!! Now we can all cheer for you!!

Happy Patent Day!!! Can we make it a national holiday in the whole of the world since there are so many international Inklingoists? Congratulations and Thank You. I’m doing patterns (complicated reproduction ones esp.) that I never would have even considered any other way. (I even got a new netbook so I could take it to work (a quilt store) to more easily demo inklingo in the middle of anything! And I know you couldn’t have done it without Russ and Monkey–congrats to them, too–truly a group effort.
Congratulations!!! Inklingo is an awesome invention. I can’t wait to see what you come up with next. VBG
