This community is for vintage crafting. Things like embroidered tea towels, dirty lace dresses, things your grandma made, Tatting, Sewing, Quilting, Crocheting, Knitting, etc. I would prefer that this community stay more vintage than kitsch, while everyone enjoys the kitsch-tastic element of the 50's and 60's, I would prefer to keep this more vintage and less modern. This is also not the place for posting pictures of your most recent crosstitch of wolves howling at the moon, Not vintage looking = Deleted post. Sorry but you have to keep things on topic. No flaming people. I will treat you with your own medicine and then ban you, so don't do it.

We are here to help everyone with the pursuit of making things as lovely as your grandmother did. Pictures of crafty vintage finds are welcome. No ebay auction posting here. I do ebay, but if I don't spam my own community with it, neither should you. There is plenty of communities for ebay auctions so list them in the appropriate place please.

I would love it if people would start a vintage pattern exchange here. I go to estate sales and find all sorts of wonderful vintage patterns, so if you find some interesting vintage patterns for embroidery, sewing, tatting, knitting, crocheting, vintage paint by numbers, anything along those lines, I would love to see it here. Maybe as things pick up with more members we can start a pattern library free of charge for people who would like to have some copies of nice vintage patterns.

Thank you for joining my community, I hope it lives up to your standards.
