Donate now to support the Antique Pattern Library project to pay for such things as database and website development, web hosting costs, data entry, scanning equipment, and help us meet the public funding ratio, which allows us to keep our nonprofit status, making your donations tax-deductible, depending on where you live and on the local tax laws and tax treaties.

If you can’t afford to give anything, which also happens in these difficult times, introducing the Library to people who don’t know of it yet, is very useful, since it broadens our user base and therefore also our donor base.

H-ML108 The Workbasket Vol. 10 No. 6 March 1945
8 pages. Crochet: crocheted pottery, plate with swirled rim, oval basket, candy plate with handle, deep dish with lace rim, seashell candy or nut dish. These are crocheted objects that are stiffened afterwards with starch, and sealed with shellac. Tatting: tatted edges. Sewing: garden apron and kneeling pad.
Scans donated by M. Leigh Martin, edited by Sytske Wijnsma. Published with kind permission of F+W Media, the current copyright holder.

Also, two links have been added to selected publications on archive.org. These two are trade catalogs for floor tiles and wall tiles, around 1900.  Great inspiration for mosaic, applique, embroidery, leaded glass, and maybe also for floor patterns, if similar tiles would still be available.  Links suggested by Franciska Ruessink.
