I emailed a local columnist a few weeks ago. She writes an antiques and collectibles column for the Indianapolis Star. I asked her if she would write a column about vintage sewing patterns, so that we could hopefully help preserve some of these little treasures. Nothing irks me more than hearing of patterns being thrown in the trash!
She wrote a lovely column that you can read here, complete with an interview from yours truly. Enjoy!
And don't throw away your patterns, please. Pass them along to someone who loves them. Like me. (The one shown here is from 1956. Sadly, it's sold.)
