Pattern Swap, Spring Wardrobes & Pattern Giveaway!

Spring is around the corner so dig into your stash and bring patterns to swap, especially any vintage ones. Everyone will be given a ticket for each pattern you bring. Then you exchange a ticket for a pattern. Any leftover patterns will be donated to the East Bay Depot for Creative Reuse.

Then we'll discuss spring wardrobes and fabric possibilities and have a drawing for Christine Haynes Emery Dress pattern. Christine generously donated her pattern for this vintage inspired dress for a giveaway (Thanks, Christine!). I finished my Emery Dress last month and blogged about it here

Here are the details: 

Date: Saturday, February 22, 10:45 am to 12:15 pm
Patterns set out: 10:45-11 am
Swap: 11-11:30 am
Wardrobe/Fabric discussion and Giveaway drawing: 11:45-12:15 pm

Location: Berkeley Public Library 
Community Meeting Room, 3rd Floor 
2090 Kittredge at Shattuck 
(near Downtown Berkeley BART station)

Note on Parking: There is metered street parking but it can be tough to find an open spot. You may want to park in a lot. There are a couple within walking distance of the library (for example, lots at 2150 Kittredge St., 2061 Allston Way, 2020 Kittredge). 

Wheelchair accessible. Please refrain from wearing scented products to public programs.

    In case you're wondering, there were more than 60 patterns leftover from our pattern swap. I stopped by the East Bay Depot today but they were unexpectedly closed. They're usually open on Sunday but there was a sign on the door saying they were closed for "unforeseen circumstances." Thanks for bringing all the patterns, ladies! It was fun!

    Sorry, I can't go as I have a prior commitment. I'd love to attend another time.

    I am so bummed I now can't go. I have loads of vintage patterns from the 80's and 90's I'd love to give away. Hopefully, this event will re-occur later in the year as it's a great idea!

    Rats! I wasn't able to make it this morning, but I have lots of patterns that are a little too big for me now that I'd love to pass along (sewing pattern size 18 and up). Please let's have another one sometime!

      We'll do a pattern swap every few months so you can pass them on. :)

    I have two or three boxes of patterns from the 80s and 90s if anyone is interested in this time period.
