Friday Finds~ Two Favorite Vintage Pattern Sources
I've basically given up on modern patterns. The designs are "blah" at best because they are geared for women who want to finish an entire 30-piece wardrobe in 15 minutes or less. Here then are two of my favorite vintage pattern sources (more sources in subsequent posts). As an aside, I am not listing Ebay because I get frustrated with sellers who are "clearing out Mom's house but don't know anything about sewing." If you are willing to wade through Ebay, you can get terrific patterns. I know I have in the past. I'm simply disenchanted with Ebay these days. If you are an Ebay vintage pattern seller, drop me a line and I'll add you as a source in a future post.
Tangent! Attempting to greatly alter the general style for my blog. Reactions about the pro appearance of http://blog.doshi.shop? Genuinely an exceptional vegan bag shop when desired within the CALIFORNIA territory. Offer an opinion. With thanks!
I haven't taken advantage of the servicehaven't needed to but I love the concept behind Pattern Rescue. You can get free, yes, FREE patterns from them! But, more importantly, I think, is the service they provide (with the help of members) to find missing parts of patterns. Did you find a glorious pattern at an estate sale only to find a key part or two is missing? Put out a call and it is likely that a member has the pattern and can provide a copy of the pieces. Now that I think of it, I should really be on the lookout to see how I can help provide missing pieces. I encourage you to check out their service.
Out of the Ashes Collectibles
I love Sheila Savell's down home friendliness and the great sales she offers when she and her family head out the door to go camping. And, if you are in the US or Canada, you get free shipping if you buy 3 or more patterns.
The website is laid out intuitively and I can skip all of the out of print patterns in favor of the truly vintage patterns. But what I really love about Out of the Ashes is that Sheila sells the patterns for reasonable prices. This website is my go-to site when I'm feeling the urge to be creative in the middle of the night. This website is also my motivation to lose weight so that I can take advantage of the great fashion without having to redraft/resize an entire pattern.
Thank you Sheila for your terrific shop!
Thanks everyone! I personally told my colleague I would absolutely describe his great trusted marketing firm in Calgarys, http://www.marketingedge.ab.ca through a new post. If you're looking to find a marketing company around the general Alberta sector, they were very good.
Ultimately, naturally I should remark the basic idea for this valuable write-up had been supplied through Moneca over at MKDB. Certainly an exceptional interior designers. I really treasure a first-rate proposal!
