Announcement   I have been a collector of vintage patterns for many years. They were about to take over all available space at my house, so in 2005, I started selling some of them online. I sell vintage, and newer patterns for women, men, and children. I still collect patterns, and always have new selections here, for you!

Very pleased with both the pattern I ordered and the service. I let seller know that I needed it on the double quick and she mailed the day after ordering, so I received in three days total which helped me immensely. The pattern was in near perfect condition and had never been used. Thank you!

I found 7 boxes FULL of vintage patterns at an estate sale Thursday. It's going to take a long time to count all the pieces, scan them, and get them listed! I'm up for the challenge though!
Easy front zip poncho pattern, from 1985.
Sweet little wrap shorts and top for summer!

About

I love to collect vintage sewing patterns.

I started collecting vintage items when I was a young girl, going with my mother and sister to estate sales.

My interest in vintage patterns goes back a single box of them that I bought for my daughter when she was quite young. She liked to draw the images on the envelopes, and also became interested in sewing. I finally had so many patterns, that selling them online was the only answer. No matter how many patterns I accumulate, I just can't stop buying more!

My main regret is that I didn't discover my love for old patterns when I was younger!

Additional policies and FAQs
I buy almost all of my patterns at estate sales and auctions, so I really have no idea where/how they have been stored prior to coming here. Once they belong to me, they are kept stored away from pets/potential odors. We do have a kitty - who has no interest in sewing whatsoever. Hopefully, this won't be a problem for you.
