We don’t want to confuse you with our two logos! Yes, there is an Almost Heaven, the Wings logo, and an Almost Heaven Designs, the needle and thread logo – both on this website representing two divisions of our business.
Sherry runs Almost Heaven, which focuses on books she authors and self publishes. She also develops all products related to her book personalities and topics. Oh Sew Happy is her latest inspirational book. She introduced the book at Houston Quilt Festival with great success! Sherry has combined sewing/quilting terms with her wisdom and guidance to creating a Happy Life. You can order your copy and request she sign the book for you or a friend.
Sherry designs all the Oh Sew Happy ladies now available in kits. She also developed a new gift line of Oh Sew Happy t shirts, journals, mugs and more.
In addition to purchasing several products on our site, we have added a separate shop for buying our personalized products. These products include T shirts, journals, totes, mugs, laptop covers and much more. All these products are designed using our Oh Sew Happy ladies and our most popular floral designs.
Rita owns and operates Almost Heaven Designs which includes patterns, kits and fabrics. She designs all the patterns and kits. Designing 3-dimensional floral quilts is a specialty of hers. After successfully demonstrating vessel patterns at Houston International Quilt Festival, we added several vessels patterns to our web site. Also, Rita has developed a new technique floating a design aspect of the quilt away from the quilt top. This has become one of the most popular art quilt designs she has offered.
Her quit patterns have appeared in Nancy’s Notions and AQS catalogs. Rita authored the only book on Texture Magic, a popular fabric manipulation product. She has several teaching videos with National Quilters Circle, an online teaching site. Rita also designs for several thread, fabric and batting manufacturers. She has worked on The Quilt Show as a volunteer for several years.
Rita is an accomplished quilting instructor traveling to quilt guilds teaching online classes and teaches at Houston International Quilt Festival each Fall. Click here to view her workshops. Catch her video shorts on You Tube. The videos are tips on how to create fun and easy Almost Heaven Design projects and learn how to master several quilting and fiber art techniques. Rita continues to develop online classes for fiber art and business related topics. She also has published college level curriculum books and classes on psychology, relationships, afterlife, business and marketing. She co-authored Financial Freedom for Women.

Our goal is to encourage beginner to experienced quilters and crafters to try our easy techniques for dimensional quilts, fabric manipulations, and embellishment ideas.
Our instructions are easy to follow. Our techniques are designed to take the difficulty and stress out of creating something new or for the first time. Customers who purchase our patterns or attend our classes are instrumental in helping us expand our pattern lines. We listen to all the ideas and suggestions you give us. We incorporate many of your suggestions in our patterns and classes. Each year we exhibit at Houston Festival to show off our latest patterns and newest techniques for creating our quilt designs.
All our patterns are also available as a downloadable PDF file. This is a convenient way to get your patterns immediately and start being creative within minutes! This also saves on shipping costs.
