A Survey From the Past

I found this survey in a pattern from the 1930s.

Anne Adams 1755

Anne Adams Pattern Company is long gone. This pattern is in mint condition - never used. What would you do? Would you fill it out? Where would you mail it to? They wanted to know how the pattern worked for you!

A Vintage Sewing Pattern Sewing contest! is having a Vintage sewing pattern contest from August 1 – September 30, 2007 You have to register to become a member of – but registration is free. The 1st and 2nd prize for the contest is a $100 gift certification and a $50 gift certificate to Please see the discuss board for the rules right now. They want patterns that are from 1920 – 1980s.

I can't enter the contest because I'm a sponsor. But I hope to have a moment to sew soon! I can't wait to see what is going to be sewn!

Today was my daughter first day of "fashion design camp" at a local community college. Two weeks of half day classes on sewing and design. I was thrilled to send her off with my old Kenmore. We'll see what she completes by the end of the course. They will have a runway show at the end of the two week. Will she be a future "Project Runway" member? Who knows!
