Nice Non-Profit: Antique Pattern Library
I found this awesome resource online that I had to share. I think it'll be helpful to creatives looking for winter projects, needing to make decorations for a party, or really anyone who enjoys making things.
It's the Antique Pattern Library :
This ongoing project is an effort to scan craft pattern publications that are in the public domain, to preserve them, so we can keep our craft heritages in our hands. Most of these scans have been graphically edited to make the images easier for craft workers to see, and to reduce file sizes. They are available, for free, to anyone who wants them, for educational, personal, artistic and other creative uses.
The COMPLETE books are scanned and available for download. They include full directions and patterns. Sorry contemporary vlogs, websites, online classes, and chat rooms. This website is a superior library of everything maker, it's good stuff! Below are some of my favorites:
The following images are from the Ribbon Art Book from 1923.
