"Our bustling downtown is a thing of the past and as door after door closes forever on fabric stores, art stores, and book stores, I find myself turning to the online presence of some of those businesses for essential supplies. Endlessly scrolling and filling up my cyber cart and click click clicking to get through all of the windows is a chore and hardly inspirational. Frustrated, I was about to close my computer and surrender my life long artist reality when one simple heading caught my eye: "Vintage Pattern Warehouse". Desperate, I decide to try one more search and what a difference that last click makes! This wonderful, colorful site and business is owned by Denise St. James and it is a delight and joy to navigate. I chose three patterns very carefully (and conservatively considering how many I wanted to choose), placed my order, and waited excitedly. When my package arrived everything was beautifully chosen, protected, and perfect. I am beyond happy with the timely service, great prices, and personal kindness extended by the very much bonafied Denise. She is the best of the business world all stitched up with passion, enthusiasm, and joy. She delivers the goods and has helped me jump start my sewing career once again. My photos show the tremendous care and personal touches that made my order so special. Thank you Denise!" Lise L., Santa Barbara, CA

I've made some changes to the way the patterns are listed in the categories. They are now alphabetical as well as chronological! If you are short on time and want to use the search feature or go right to the category, you can find the pattern you are looking for numerically by year or decade!! The only exception may be as I'm adding new patterns, they will be on the last page until added into the mix chronologically.

Here is a post just for fun!! See how many Hollywood families you can name that have acting brothers OR acting father and son(s). I'll get you started and as they come in, when there is a new name not yet listed, I'll add it!
*Try not to use an internet search (think about what you've watched over the years)! Think old Hollywood and new Hollywood!
FATHER and SON(s)
