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.

Berlin woolwork pattern for tray or frame

Handpainted rectangular pattern in green and blue on a dark red background. Probably intended for a tray. Also suitable for a frame. Because the pattern is summetrical, only half of the chart is shown.

Image donated by ebay seller joan10605, charted by Sytske Wijnsma. Pattern from her grandmother's needlework studio in Manhattan, LaMer's Studio, from 1909-1967, where she taught needlework and did work for musea and famous customers.

Cataloguers needed!

We badly need trained librarians or scholars in humanities, to help make our catalog useful and conforming to standards, and teach other volunteers how to do this. If you have some training in cataloguing, we'd be very glad for your help. As many or as few hours you would be willing to spend on it, it all would help. Contact Judith or Sytske via the groups.io/g/antiquepatternlibrary group, or send a mail to the info address above. Thank you!
