Calling all Pinterest junkies: Vintage Sewing Pattern Community Board

by Katherine on September 16, 2012 · 26 comments

in Vintage Sewing

Are you hooked on pinterest? Do you have a keen eye for a gorgeous vintage pattern?

Drop a link to your pinterest profile in the comments below (or email it to katherine [at] if you’re shy) and I’ll add you as a contributor to our newly created vintage sewing patterns community pinboard so you can share your pattern finds with us.


This idea is the brainchild of the lovely Lynda from Australia, who you can find on etsy here :)


Edited to add:

If you sign up to contribute, I strongly recommend checking your email preferences here: and setting ‘Group Pins’ to OFF. If you leave the ‘Group Pins’ notification on, you’ll get an email notification any time someone posts to the board and that will quickly become extremely annoying.

I'm the editor at WeSewRetro so don't hesitate to get in touch with any problems or questions. In addition to keeping the good ship WeSewRetro afloat, I do an amateurish but enthusiastic job of raising a daughter, teach university professors how to dominate a computer by day and study for a masters in literature at night. My daily coffee consumption would kill a small horse. I'm having a clandestine relationship with bias binding and my idea of hell is turning a spaghetti strap right side out.

When I add you, Pinterest should send you an email asking you to accept or decline the invitation to contribute to the community pinboard, so keep an eye out for that email.

When you accept, I suggest trying to pin something just to make sure it worked.
