- Whoa! Did you know that Flickr has a group devoted to trading vintage patterns?! It looks like it's been pretty inactive for a while, but I say it's high time for us obsessives to get things going. I've uploaded some patterns to trade (including the one above, Simplicity 9868) -- let's get the party started! (I'm "GremlyGirl" over in Flickrland.) There's also a fabric swapping group over there. I'd been toying with plans to set up a stash trading blog, but it looks like this may eliminate the need!
- Over at Colette Patterns, Sarai asks about your clothing pet peeves.
- New patterns coming soon! Grosgrain is planning on opening an etsy shop!
- Somehow I didn't know that Sandra Betzina had a website, Power Sewing. Considering how much I love her books Power Sewing and Fabric Savvy -- not to mention that I've been considering writing a post called "I Love You, Sandra Betzina" just because of her awesome knit top pattern, Vogue 2980 -- I think I'll be spending some time there.
Happy weekend to you all...and happy birthday to my brother! Little bro, I tried to find a Fonz-inspired pattern for you and couldn't -- so this is for you. (You know what I'm referring to!)
