Does this production mean that Pat Brown is back from his tour in Iraq? Or will Mr. Anderson be sewing the coat while Pat is gone?

I have a sack coat made by Pat and it is a beauty! I love wearing it and i highly recommend it to anyone looking for a new coat. The fit of the coat is amazing, Pat obviously knew what he was doing when he drafted his pattern (the neckline is right where it should be with none of the odd wrinkling around the shoulders that is caused by drafting the natural neck line too high.)

Pat and Mike have been working together for many, many years and while Pat is still in Iraq, this project was initiated before he left. Mike is a great craftsman in his own right...ask anyone who owns one of his quilts.

Thanks for letting me know. I was wondering because i live only a few miles from Mr. Brown and have met him on a few occasions when i ordered items ect. I have never met Mr. Anderson but i hear he is a great fellow. I hope Pat will be home safe and sound very soon.
