  • Hi Tarna! I'm new to this site, and have been loving the patterns! Quick question, is there any way to make the thumbnails of the patterns larger so you can scroll through and find a product you like? Especially if I'm looking under a specific catagory like pants or dress, I would love to be able to clearly see the thumbnails to find designs I like. If there is a way to do that on my end I would appreciate the help.

    Thanks!! S

    • Hi,

      The thumbnail size is hard coded, I think, but you could always adjust your browser display size (zoom)...

      Best regards,

  • Thank you Tarna for removing the pattern. Sorry I did not do it earlier. I have just added a new page with a book (Stitch by Stitch) and I hope that I listed in the right category. Thanks again for always being on top of things. Have a great day! Cristina

    • Hello Cristina Millie,

      I do not recall which pattern I removed ... it may have been a while ago.

      No worries, categories can be changed.

      Best regards,

  • Hi B. I hope this message finds you well. 

    I have a copy of this pattern. Mine has a color illustration and the wiki page has a different envelope which is black & white. I'm not sure which to do... add my image to the existing page, replace it, or leave it alone? Also, since mine is also dated 1943, is this still considered a reissue? 

    Thanks much! J

    PS - CONGRATS on the well-deserved Editor OTM award!

    • Hi J,

      It seems many of the patterns were printed in black and white during WWII (particularly if printed in Europe), as well as in color.  You could add the picture to the page.  It is not technically a reissue; more an alternate colorway.

      Thanks...  They just started this, and the "crezy lady with a gazillion edits" may have been an easy choice :)

      Best regards,

      tarna

    • Thanks - I'll add it on.  

      LOL - Your detail-oriented perspective is what keeps the wiki not looking like every Kohls store I've ever visited. Thanks for all that. #NotAHotMessHere

  • Style 4301A- Hi Tarna I'm new here and well lets just say I'm messing up all over the place. I just created a page and of course relized after I pulished it that there is one already for the same pattern. I tried to delete my page but I can't figure out how. I'm hoping you can help as I hate clogging things up with repeat pages. Sorry for making more work for you next time I will triple check before making a new page. Thank you so much for your time Deborah

    • Hi Deborah,

      No worries.  I will delete the page (only admins can delete pages).

      One thing to do to avoid duplicates is to make sure leave a space between the actual pattern number and the letter when you create the page title.  Of course, the best thing to do is to type the pattern name and number into the search box before adding.

      Best regards,

      tarna

  • Butterick 6736 C - Tarna - I must have entered the pattern number incorrectly. It should have been 6737 C.  I just went in to delete my source since I sold the pattern and discovered I entered the wrong #.

  • Hello there! I'm a member of the Fandom Editor Experience team and we've selected you to receive some Fandom swag as part of our first Editor Rewards program initiative with Emerging Interests wikis. This is free of charge, with a potential caveat I'll get to shortly.

    To claim your swag, you need to visit our Design By Humans storefront, figure out which thing you want, and then fill out this form accordingly.

    If you're in the US or Canada, that's all you have to do. If you're not, there may be a customs charge after the item arrives in your country that we cannot pay for you, due to vendor limitations. If you don't want to pay it, feel free to refuse the gift. We won't take it personally at all. If you are not the directed user of this message, please note that we will ignore your form request.

    p.s. I know you already won Editor of the Month, but this is a separate program, and you deserve it!

    • Hello Sannse,

      Thank you!  I filled out the form...

      I fondly remember meeting you when I visited then Wikia in 2014 (time flies...), and hope all is well in Fandom land.

      Best regards,

      tarna

    • Time certainly does fly, and things change! But I'm happy with where Fandom is going 🙂 and love that we are giving out swag to some of our best users.

      Maybe we will meet again one day, I would love to have more people getting together in person!

  • Hi there!

    Congratulations! You are one of the inaugural Fandom Editors of the Month!

    While bragging rights are sweet, this also comes with a Fandom hoodie, should you choose to receive it. We'd need some shipping info from you so we can send it, but it's our gift to you, no charge.

    If you're interested, may I contact you via email to discuss further?

    • Hi,

      Oh wow.  Thanks for the honors!

      Who would turn down a hoodie, particularly now that fall has arrived?  

      Yes, please contact me via email (on file? -  I did visit the San Francisco offices once - if not let me know).

      Best regards,

      tarna

  • Hi Tarna, 

    My name is Abby Glassenberg and I'm the co-founder of Craft Industry Alliance. We have a blog covering craft news and I'm working on a short article about the vintage sewing pattern wikia. I know that there has been confusion out there about what this site actually contains (misunderstanding that it's actually free patterns to download due to misleading clickbait headlines on other sites). The goal of my piece is to set the record straight. I wondered if you might be available for a quick phone chat this week? I'm in the Boston area. My email address is abby@craftindustryalliance.org Could you send me a message? Thank you! -Abby

  • Hi Tarna, I see you reverted my change to V7175A. The Magdorable link doesn't work for me (Safari, Firefox, mobile). The site bounces to a login page.

    If you know how to access it publicly, please let me know--

    Cheers,

    - Sarah

    • You need to log in to blogger to see most of those sites.  I just did not think we should remove the link, so people can decide for themselves.
