For Christmas, my boyfriend’s absolutely beyond wonderful mother gave me a membership to the Vintage Pattern Lending Library.
Friends, this virtual library is AWESOME! Membership is relatively inexpensive–$25 gets you a year long membership which include four “free” loans (I’m assuming that means you trace the patterns and send them back?), 10% discount on purchases (patterns are reasonably priced), and once you’ve used up your loans you can borrow patterns for up to a month for $5 a pop. All-in-all, this is a pretty awesome deal.
I can’t decide what to tackle first. Right now, I’m really attracted to the 1930s patterns. Perhaps because the 1930s are the most well represented in the catalog.
Here’s where I need your help. I have a huge problem making decisions. I can’t decide which one to tackle first. Rather than re-post all the pictures here, if you could be so kind as to visit my blog and leave a comment with your thoughts I’d be ever so grateful. I acknowledge that I am going to have to (in all likelihood) grade a pattern up. So size is not an issue.
Thanks in advance for all your help !
