We want to send a special thank you to Mrs. Jo W. in Orangeburg, S.C. Jo has generously contributed vintage patterns from her own collection to our vintage pattern giveaway!

You will love them, some are from the '50's and there are even some vintage smocking patterns. Stay tuned because we will start posting them as soon as we get them sorted and scanned.

Thanks again Jo!
