For Sale, Wanted & Free to a good home / Pattern/counter books
« on: April 02, 2021, 09:29:20 AM »
I’d really like to have a couple of older counter books. Does anyone have any idea where they might be sourced? I don’t really mind about age. Any info would be appreciated- thanks.

I saw this & I thought you may be interested! / Simplicity 1431 20-28

I saw this lovely pattern on EBay but too big for me unfortunately. It’s at a really low price and hoped someone off here could benefit. It’s a nice pattern with top, skirt, dress and trousers and nice fitting lines and neckline. Hope it’s of use to someone

Patterns Discussion / Russian Burdastyle pdfs
« on: March 07, 2021, 09:52:08 AM »
Hi, I wonder if anyone can help me with this. I’ve looked at the site a couple of times, and the kids pdf patterns are a very good price and often discounted. Has anyone else had experience of downloading patterns from this site. I know it’s Burdastyle but at the same time it’s a Russian site. Apart from using Google translate on my phone camera, I can’t really work out what I’m doing. Is it a safe site? Is it difficult to print out etc. Any advice would be gratefully received.

I was searching for a New Look pattern and noticed this sale on - it seems to be Simplicity and New Look patterns at half price. The postage is quite high at £4.50 but it’s free of charge over £20 and free returns. Hope this helps someone other than me to add to their stash!!  ;)

I’m sure someone else has already mentioned this but it is the Simplicity patterns half price sale at Sewdirect, Minerva Crafts and I’m sure other outlets. I don’t know if it is on in the bricks and mortar shops too?

Just noticed an LIDL advert for the Singer Brilliance sewing machine £119 - looks like it has buttonholes and some decorative stitches and a Singer overlocker £129. There's also a sewing cabinet for £49. Hope this is helpful to someone, or for a present. The offers start today and I presume last a week?

Hi, this is just a query from an oldy to other oldies. Do you remember Style sewing patterns? They were a big seller in the 60s and 70s and I just saw a 1980s Jasper Conran for Style pattern. However I really don't remember when they disappeared, and why. Did they just become very unfashionable or suffer from the fall in home sewing? Does anybody out there know more? I would be really interested to hear. ( Hope this is in the right section- apologies if it isn't)

Patterns Discussion / "La Maison Victor" magazine with men's patterns
« on: September 27, 2018, 13:41:51 PM »

I noticed the new copy of La Maison Victor contains a nice and relatively simple set of men's patterns. It's an all man issue! And I thought to give a heads up to anyone who wanted to sew for Christmas ( or any other reason). They seemed good to me anyway.

I haven't posted my own thread before so hope I have done it right! :o

Hi, I'm new... / Hello from the wilds of Kent
« on: March 12, 2018, 18:50:39 PM »
Hi I'm Sewcycle from Kent. I'm interested mainly in garment sewing for myself. I really like Katherine and Marcy Tilton designs, but try to make things that are practical too, for my shorter than average self. I have done some quilting, and really a bit of most crafts. Hello to everyone  :)
