2022-09-20 New Publication: Spool Cotton Co. – Bedspreads Book No. 166


Our yearly fundraiser is underway! Our goal is 6000 USD, same as last year, and we’re not starting from zero because some people donate every month. Every little bit is welcome! Our current total is 981.55 USD. Help us to make it to the next year!

Donate  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.

Also, when shopping on Amazon, you can set New Media Arts as your preferred charity for Amazon Smile. They give us some money for every sale via that channel.
