Find Crafty Patterns

Hi Fans of Vintage Patterns!!!

I am Ellie. I am generous in years, passionate about the creative process and I love beautiful handmade things. 

My mother dropped me in front of the sewing machine at Age 8 to keep me occupied and it was game over from there.  Do you remember when Vogue mailed out paper singlets of their upcoming patterns?  It was Christmas for me every time one of those envelopes arrived.  Sadly, after moving a number of times in my younger years I finally had to lighten the load and I got rid of them ... still regret that one.  During those crazy years when time whipped by and I needed me time, I went to the fabric store.  Sigh... I drifted my fingers over fabric, lazily drank up the pattern books and designed beautiful creations with buttons, bows and bling ... anyone with me?

Many years later after career, children, moving, home renovating I can finally make time for creative me!  I am happy knee deep in all my patterns, starting more projects than I have time or space and generally indulging the original me.

I am thankful that visionary individuals have designed this site and I greatly appreciate the wonderful contributors who add their amazing patterns.  It is like Christmas for me every time I sip my tea -or wine =-)- and dreamily mouse thro the pages.

I hope to add some of my treasures to the collection.  I would appreciate any helpful comments if you see my blunders ... hoping the old girl can still be taught ... and sharing your comments.
