Some Other places to find free antique patterns:

Museum sites with textile-related collections:

  • Victoria and Albert Museum
  • Museum of New Zealand Te Papa Tongarewa. They have a separate page dedicated to their Berlin woolwork collection 
  • Norwegian embroidery pattern digital collection
  • The Sterling and Francine Clark Art Institute
  •  Historisch museum Deventer The now-closed historical museum of Deventer, that gave us permission to chart and publish selected items from their collection.
  •  The collection Landwehr-Vogels  is probably the most extensive collection of Berlin woolwork patterns in Europe. The patterns can be viewed in detail, but not downloaded. We're not allowed to repost or even chart them, either (and I asked). That said, it's fabulous eye candy. The link has some search criteria pre-filled. Our collection and theirs overlap for some twenty items.
