Providing public domain content has become a bit of a passion for me. So much so, I started a company to do just that! Purple Kitty is not a large corporation. It is just me...with a little help from my family. I have created several websites dedicated solely to this mission and have reproduced hundreds of public domain patterns once thought to be lost so that they are now available once again for EVERYONE! When I am not doing that, I am a total tv junkie (yes, we really do have that many tvs in our house), hang with my kids and husband and take care of my pets, a dog and five kitties.

The reason Red was chosen is because it was a sturdy cotton thread that could be counted on not to fade or bleed.
