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!

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!

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 kitties- who have no interest in sewing whatsoever. Hopefully, this won't be a problem for you.
