New Media Arts will no longer solicit donations online.

If you would like to help the Antique Pattern Library, 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 future donor base. Blogs, tiktok, instagram, pinterest, ravelry, facebook, other social media – show others your favorite publications and what you made using them. Our work is only useful when people actually use it!
