Yesterday I told you how to search for vintage sewing patterns on Etsy. Today, I'll share my list of sellers who offer sewing patterns for sale.
A couple of tips for you to keep in mind before I get to the list.
Etsy provides an RSS feed button on the home page of each seller's shop. This makes it easy for you to be notified when your favorite seller adds an item to their shop. The RSS feed is the last item on the right side of the page.
You can also heart a seller or a pattern, but you do need to set up an Etsy account to do this. I'd recommend it because it makes it easier to find a pattern or favorite seller again.
As a seller I can see who hearts my shop as well as who has marked any of my items with a heart. But, as a buyer, if you dont' want that information public, you have the ability to keep your hearts private. It just shows up as a secret admirer. BTW, feel free to heart my shop as I only have 42 so far and I'm feeling a bit like the last kid in gym class picked for team, if you know what I mean .
Finally, when you do shop for patterns on Etsy, keep in mind that Etsy defines vintage as anything older than 20 years. Okay, now that you've stopped giggling you'll understand why you see patterns from the 80s coming up in your search for vintage sewing patterns. Also most of these shops sell OOP (out of print) patterns in addition to vintage.
This list is in no particular order - except my shop is first, but hey, it's my blog so I get to be first if I want to.
Patternshop (I've purchased from this seller)
VintageStyle101 (I've purchased from this seller)
SnippetsofTime (I've purchased from this seller)
CraftRage (now I haven't purchased from her, but Rachelle commented that she uses her shop to clear out her extra vintage patterns, but is "hopelessly addicted, so I actually buy more than I sell. *sigh*" Yea, I can relate to that ...)
OhSewCharming (she was my first customer)
I'll come back and alphabetize these for you and save them to the sidebar for easy reference in the near future. In the meantime, if you know of an Etsy pattern seller that I've missed, leave a comment or send me an email so I can add them to the list.
