Love vintage sewing supplies? Me too, so let's talk!

Welcome to Sew Betty and Dot, home of vintage sewing goodness! I’m obsessed with sewing AND vintage, so the things in my shop are truly the things I collect. My mom always sewed when I was young, and I have very fond memories of going to the fabric store and looking through the pattern catalogues (those patterns that she and I sewed are now vintage, by the way!), but it was the artwork on the front of the envelopes that first lit the fire under me to start collecting.

I’ve only been collecting since about 2009; that renewed interest came from a garage sale where there were two BIG boxes of sewing patterns marked “Free.” I grabbed them and ran, half expecting to be stopped with my treasure. If those people only knew what they started! It’s amazing to me that people even now are often mystified and ask me why in the world anyone would want a vintage sewing pattern—and that’s sometimes followed by the tragic news that they’ve just cleaned out grandma’s attic and threw away a ton of patterns {sob}.

I love fabric and buttons and trim, and I have an extensive collection of vintage sewing books—I’m particularly interested in books that taught children to sew.

If you share my love for vintage sewing accoutrements, please have a look around!

    I have always loved all things vintage, from a very early age, and I'll always remember my first vintage frock score at a Salvation Army in my hometown of Lexington, Kentucky. My obsession with vintage continues to this day (I also love chickens!).
