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.

L-YS001 Six Silver-handled Scissors
Six different antique scissors with silver handles. When such scissors would be too worn to use, the handles were taken off and put on another set of blades. Most of these date from the middle of the 19th century.
Borrowed from various sewing baskets and collections, scanned by Sytske Wijnsma.
