I love sewing patterns!

I began my Etsy shop in 2011 after I realized that the first thing I look for when antiquing is vintage patterns! Every antique store and booksale I attend, sewing patterns are the first thing I seek out. Eventually, I realized I had way too many of them, so I figured I'd begin to share them with the world and resell some of them. Now I go hunting for treasures just for you!

I've included pictures of some of my favorite patterns
