Welcome!

This ongoing project is an effort to scan craft pattern publications that are in the public domain, to preserve them, so we can keep our craft heritages in our hands. Most of these scans have been graphically edited to make the images easier for craft workers to see, and to reduce file sizes. They are available, for free, to anyone who wants them, for educational, personal, artistic and other creative uses.

Maaskamp 1 - 2de Stuk

E. Maaskamp inde Kalverstraat 18

A small but wide pattern sheet, with three patterns: two repeating patterns and in the middle a small oval motif. It's one of the few patterns printed in the Netherlands. No date is known, but it looks like the patterns in the first half of the nineteenth century.
