About Us

Sharon Martin McCurdy - Pure Joy DesignsWelcome to Pure Joy Patterns (Pure Joy Designs). That’s me, Sharon McCurdy, in the photo. I have been creating patterns for a long time, though not as a business. Years ago, I would make clothing using my own designs. Back in those days, I did a lot of machine appliqué, which I still love today.

But when I was introduced to quilting, my world changed. I found myself creating patterns and samples for the quilt shop where I was working. That’s when my love of designing and writing (I wrote software manuals as a technical writer), finally came together…and the rest, I guess you could say, is history.

Everyone always asks where I came up with the name “Pure Joy Designs”. Well, my mother's name was Joye. Years ago, my sister and her husband (owners of  Wire Works Custom Jewelry) made Mom a necklace that read “100% Pure Joye”. I always loved the necklace and decided to use the concept as my company name. Additionally, Pure Joy is a daily reminder of Mom, who passed away in 2007.

When I'm not sewing, I enjoy gardening, playing golf, anything crafty, and of course being with my friends.  I am a hummingbird enthusiast.  I love the summer when the hummingbirds are here.  I usually have 8 to 12 feeders around the property.

We always welcome the opportunity to meet new people, develop new relationships and look forward to delivering the best service in the industry for many more years to come!
