    On Etsy since 2013

    Clean, curated, and quality vintage for sewing and crafting.

    I started collecting vintage fabric to sew with myself. I have always been drawn to vintage and antiques—I love the feeling of finding something rare and special, something with a past and a story. I found that by using vintage materials in my sewing, I could take these lovely things and give them a new life, merging their stories with my own. I started this shop to give others the opportunity to do the same. Let's bring vintage out of the attic and into our closets!

    All items for sale are guaranteed authentic vintage unless it is explicitly noted that they are modern. They are primarily sourced from estate sales throughout the northeast. All fabric is carefully hand-washed, dried flat and ironed or steamed as appropriate for the particular fiber content. When fiber content is unmarked, all efforts have been made to accurately identify the fabric through microscopy. I have personally checked all vintage patterns for condition and completeness. My goal is to provide clean, quality items, with no surprises.

    New items are listed frequently. I have a large collection and have not had time to list all of it yet, so if you are looking for something specific please ask—I may have it!

    If you are interested in custom orders (smaller amounts than are listed, bulk, etc.), please message me.
