Big Announcement #1 and a Special Deal ONLY for My Readers!

Do you ever wonder what it would have been like to live in a previous generation?  What would your worries be? What would your passions be?  


It's fun to look back on the styles and patterns of yesteryear!  It's actually a little passion of mine. If you gave me whole day to do whatever I wanted, I would probably choose (after sleeping A LOT)a day filled with antique shops, garage sales and thrift stores looking for patterns and pictures that inspire. I have a feeling I'm not alone!

For a while now I have been collecting vintage pattern books and pamphlets.  I also have a collection of clippings from old vintage magazines (like really old).  I love the styles and the inspiration they bring.  


I have an ever growing pile of patterns that I have learned recently can be shared as they are now considered "public domain" (i.e. their copyright has expired and not been renewed).  So I have started the process of cleaning them up and creating PDF's to be purchased in the shop 

To celebrate, and to thank all of you for your support and kindness. I will be offering ALL the patterns in the shop (yes even the Pod and Scoop patterns) at 30% off!  This is ONLY for you.  

IMPORTANT: When you check out, just put "Friend" in notes to seller and I will reimburse you 30% of your purchase.

Here are a few of my favorites:

Paton's Bayeux Crocheted Pilot-style hat

Bear Brand Babushka Style Hat Knitting Pattern


Brunswick Hooded Sweater Knitting Pattern

Paton's Crusader Hat Knitting Pattern

Also, you can bet that I will be sharing some of these patterns with you FREE of charge in future posts.  Just stay with me ladies....there are some exciting gifts on the way!
