Sew Many Opinions!

"Vintage Pattern Warehouse is my favorite site for vintage sewing patterns.  Denise's prices are the most reasonable I've found, the patterns are packaged beautifully, and she ships instantly.  I cannot recommend this site highly enough!"  Paula H.

"Excellent web and selection of patterns!"  Janet V.

"Just wanted to let you know that your 2 boxes arrived.  I am so impressed, you obviously put a lot of thought into these prizes.  I know they will be in high demand and appreciated by the winners!"  Judith M., Lancaster Fiber Festival 2018

"Your patterns certainly bring back fond memories!!"  Adele A.

"I received the magazine (from 2006) which had the quilt pattern I've been looking for.  Thank You so much!  Perfect condition hard to believe it was 13 years old!!  You double checked to make sure the pattern and instructions were still there and in great condition.  What a clever idea of recycling vintage/older patterns and giving them a new life.  I've sewn for many years and older patterns are actually made with better quality tissue/paper and for the most part a single size (easier to follow for cutting).  Also vintage clothing, how can you go wrong.  Thank You again."  Mary M.

"Thanks a million!!!  We are looking forward to the festival and greatly appreciate the discount code!!!!!"  Jenni B.

"Thank you for the class and for the admission tickets!  I'm delighted!"  Terry N.

"THANK YOU so much for the door prize!!  That was very kind of you."  Terry P., Co-Chair Quilt Nebraska Annual Convention

"I saw this dress online and search for several days for the pattern being a woman of plus size no one had it until I found vintagepatternwarehouse, I have to say that it has been an easy and wonderful experience.  Denise kept me inform of process and I felt like I was communicating with a friend, when my pattern arrived not only was it exactly what was advertise (am very cautious if/when buying from international sellers), it was send quickly and it was package beautifully with a lovely note from Denise.  I have recommend this website to friends and it will be the first place I look if I need anymore patterns.  5 star seller."  Pauline C., United Kingdom

"Thank you again for the door prize donation!  The sewer that won was excited to get home and appreciate her goodies.  It was a good combination for this venue.  We even had a few ask about your booth location!  We did direct them to your website!"  Connie W., Tangled Webb Promotions, Quilt Show Reno

"For a person who finds that certain satisfaction only sewing can provide, patterns tell the story of their life, similar to going through a photo album."  Deborah C.

"Hi Denise - thank you!  I only noticed the promo after I ordered the two patterns.  Thank you very much, I really appreciate it!  Your shop is fantastic :)"  Janessa H., Canada

"I was the lucky person to win the door prize from you.  I really enjoy looking at the patterns and books.  They bring back memories to when I was in 4-H and using patterns to make clothes and other items.  Thank you for donating these items to the committee putting on Nebraska'a quilt convention.  I know some of the convention attendees were a little jealous including my younger sister."  Jeannine N.

"I love your website!  Thank you so much for your prompt response and for your flexibility!  I did find your site easy to navigate, and it was also very fun to go through.  I'm pretty new to sewing, but not to vintage and antique clothing, and your shop is such a wonderful resource!"  Elizabeth B.

 "We are happy to feature you and Vintage Pattern Warehouse as a door prize!"  Kaitlin D., Vermont Quilt Festival

"Dear Friend!  HAPPY DAY when I found your wonderful site!  I was struggling to get some patterns for my wee granddaughter through one of the big box stores online and UGH-it wasn't happening too much.  But all of the fabric stores in our city have been long gone.  SIGH.  And then I found you!  THANKS for this lovely company!  I cannot wait to get my patterns!  LOVE ALWAYS."  Lise L.

"I received my prize package!  The cross-stitch kit is perfect!  The embroidery transfers are totally cute; my daughter fell in love with them and I am now going to put together a Christmas present for her which will contain kitchen towels, thread, thimble, needles, etc.  She graduates with her bachelor's degree in Dec., and won't have time to devote to learning embroidery until then anyway!  Thank you so much for the prize package.  I love being able to support your business and I love being able to recommend you to my sewing and crafty friends."  Jennifer K.

"Thank you so much!  I'll definitely keep shopping from you guys, you're so good to your customers."  Stacy W.

"I received my patterns today.  They are wonderful.  I wanted to tell you how much I appreciated the care you took with your packaging to make sure they arrive in good shape.  The cardboard and the plastic envelopes are terrific.  You were also super fast, and your prices are very fair!  Thank you for that!"  James N.

"This is my first time ordering from you and you've got a great selection!!!!  I cannot wait to get this!  Thank you so much!"  Sindey P.

"I was so thrilled to find this pattern.  I have four Raggedy Anns/Andys that my grandmother made for my children way back in the early 70s and they all need some kind of repair from years of being loved.  I could have possibly deconstructed a leg/shoe to make a reasonable facsimile but I love that I found the pattern!  I won't touch the body and face of these dolls no matter how stained, I'll just replace a leg or two!  (And maybe make a brand new one for me!"  Barbara K.


"I have received my patterns and am delighted, can't wait to start sewing!  One minor problem, Simplicity 3263 size 14 is missing the instructions and pieces K, L and M.  Do you have them?  If not, can I exchange it for another complete pattern?"

VPW:  "Please accept my sincere apology.  Yes, please pick out another pattern and I will ship it right away.  I'm sorry for the mix up with Simplicity 3263.  Anything in the $5 to $6.50 range is fine.  Just email me with the Brand and number and I will double check the pattern pieces for you! :)  There is no need to mail the pattern back."

"Wow, great customer service!  I sure appreciate the way you handled this.  I'm very pleased with the whole transaction.  I'll be sure to share this on Pinterest."  Victoria B.

"I received my order and am delighted.  Both patterns were ones I had many years ago, but they got lost in a move, I'm so happy to have them again and will put them to good use.  Thank you so much!"  Ruth B.

"I just had to let you know how important this pattern order (McCall's #848 Folk Dolls) was to me.  When I was a kindergarten teacher, I made several 32" dolls for my housekeeping area.  The students loved them!  Somehow I lost the pattern after I retired and now that I am a grandmother of a 2 year old girl, I desperately wanted to create a life-size doll for her.  I had no luck finding any pattern that I liked, and kept thinking of the one that I had lost.  I didn't know the pattern maker/number, so I just kept looking online hoping to see it.  When I saw the pattern picture on your site, I instantly knew that was it!  Although I subsequently found other sites with the same pattern for sale, I choose to stick with you, as you were the first!"  Candy C.

"Hi Denise, I received my patterns very happy with them, I particularly love the original owner's hand written notes on the cover.  Alice S. Scheetz....I wonder who she was??  Kind regards from Australia."  Ann F.

"Hello, I'm commenting to try to win the dressmaking guide and also to say thank you for the care put into shipping my previous order!  The shorts I made came out amazing and all of my friends loved them.  Thank you!"  Kayleigh B.

"Would you please consider making 2 new categories?  Plus vintage patterns and plus modern patterns.  It's very difficult to go thru each pattern.  I am looking for vintage 40/50s and retro modern patterns, 44/46 and 24/26 respectively.  Thank you."  Heidi S.  

"I've checked my website and refreshed the 'order' in which the patterns are listed in the PLUS SIZE category.  They run numerically by year, oldest first through modern.  This should help you find the 'era' you are looking for.  You may also do a search of a size 24 or 26 and that should get you to all patterns in your size as well."  Denise, Vintage Pattern Warehouse


"My order arrived quickly with my vintage patterns in good condition.  I really like that they have a whole section for plus size patterns.  Finding bigger sized vintage patterns can be hard but this makes it easier.  I'm definitely ordering more in the future."  Katelin P.

"I just discovered your website.  I love the selection and how well organized the site is.  I made a mistake in my order.  My granddaughter doesn't like the Butterick pattern.  I hope it is possible to cancel that item.  I still want the Simplicity pattern."  Betsy K.

"Once I process the order I can issue a partial refund for the pattern not wanted and the difference in shipping as well."  Denise, Vintage Pattern Warehouse

"Thank you Denise!  I loved the last pattern I purchased from you and am so excited for these.  I look forward to the addition of gloves on the website!"  Stephanie F.

"Hi Denise.  Patterns arrived this morning.  Beautifully packaged, thank you.  I also just noticed that the patterns only took 9 days to get here - excellent!"  Toni L.   (Order was shipped to the United Kingdom)


"Thanks for the pattern, safely arrived yesterday.  Very pleased, what a lovely old thing, memento from past times.  And the style of the jacket is great - really looking forward to making it up."  Richard M.  (Order shipped to the United Kingdom)

"Denise, the check is in the mail.  You should have it by Friday the latest.  (Seems like mail is slower these days especially going out of State).  Cannot thank you enough for being so patient with me."  "Hi Denise, your pattern arrived safely in Syracuse today.  Many thanks."  Kathy S.   

"I ordered a vintage Simplicity apron pattern from Vintage Pattern Warehouse and the entire process was a wonderful experience.  I ordered the pattern on Wednesday and I received it on Friday.  The mailed pattern was carefully packaged to prevent water and tear damage which I really appreciated.  The pattern was never used and all pieces and instructions were present.  I also enjoyed the friendly note included with my purchase.  This company will be my go-to for vintage patterns from now on."  Carmen C.

"Denise, thanks so much!  The patterns arrived quickly and your packaging is lovely.  I am looking forward to sewing these clothes!  And, will watch for more patterns.  You're the best!"  Jean D.

"Denise, thank you for the fast service, your site was a joy to navigate.  Thanks"  Lee G.

"It was delightful to find your site and recall memories of my youth!  I truly appreciate the effort you made to contact me and answer the questions I asked prior to ordering.  It was indeed a pleasure speaking with you.  Also appreciated was the careful packaging and prompt shipment of the pattern (that I was so excited to locate).  McCall's Crafts #7225 Christmas Package  It arrived in great shape and your personal note was very thoughtful.  I would highly recommend your business to anyone....thank you!"  Sandra M.  


"I wanted to let you know how much I enjoyed receiving the patterns I ordered.  I loved the packaging and what great shape the patterns were in.  Thank you.  I will order again."  Myra S.

"Thanks for so carefully and nicely preparing and sending the patterns to Kathy in 'Canada'.  They arrived safely and I'm ready to sew!"  Kathy

"Thank you so much again and all the very best to you for the future.  If your business always runs on this level of customer service, you should be very proud indeed.  It was a member of a Facebook group who recommended your site to me and I'm very glad she did."  Lainey L.

"Hello Denise.. I just wanted to thank you for my order and your kind words...Everything was packaged so neatly...You also have a great holiday!"  Clara M.


"Hi Denise-Just had to let you know that I got the pattern and it's beautiful.  You did an amazing job with the packaging.  Thanks!  Do you have a newsletter that you can add me to, so I can take a look from time to time?  Thanks again, Alexandra  aka. Another happy customer"

"Hi Denise, I'm so happy to have stumbled across your online store by chance, looking for Butterick 6601 pattern!  There is one for sale on etsy I think that is $35 or some price like that.  I just did not want to spend that much on a pattern and am so glad that I found it for so much less on your site.  Then I saw a bunch of others that I decided to get!  I know that I will be back in the future.  Thanks again, Janet in Arizona"
