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.

Small leporello, folded, 15 drawings of people in Dutch traditional costume.

The building still exists, with a stone above the entrance depicting the orphans and a verse asking people who enter there, to donate. It now houses the municipal museum of Amsterdam.

Contact Judith or Sytske via the Yahoo group, or send a mail to the info address above. Thank you!
