My Gotta Keep Janet Sane Somehow Shop
I answered an ad on Craig's List about patterns they were giving away, (say FREE and I am there!), and they brought bag after bag of patterns till I had a vehicle full of patterns. I don't remember the count, but it was way over 2000. Being an organizer at heart I went through and organized every pattern and fell in love with the fashions and styles. I gave away or charged $5 a bag for lots of those patterns, briefly half. Since I was disabled and looking for an outlet that wouldn't "throw me down the stairs" when I was done (aches, pains etc.) I discovered first another site, but eventually drifted over to Etsy. A match made in heaven!
I found the wonderful Pattern Patter Team and have learned so much about vintage patterns. I have learned that I have a passion for vintage patterns because they have so much history to tell. I just get blown away when I discover yet another fashion I knew nothing about. What was happening in the world when this outfit was worn? Who wore them? What were they thinking and feeling? I have looked at patterns that were not printed and marveled at how much of a talented seamstress this sewer had to be to follow this pattern.
OK, I still have the ooohs and ahhhs when I look at kids patterns old and young. Their bright faces have not changed much over the years. Every pattern is a marvel that only needs opening to discover the magic of discovery. Is it Christmas? It must be because I sure find gifts every time I go through some "new" patterns. The thrill of the hunt is what keeps me going. Then there are the suburb teammates and buyers that I have come across. I have found kindness and consideration in just about every person who has crossed my path on Etsy.
