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.

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!
