Perhaps the lack of replies is down to these link already having been posted a few years back.

I'm sure that any patterns you scan would be most appreciated.  Smiley

I stumbled upon a site that makes me wish I could do needlework.  I checked to see if it had been posted here before, but could not find it.
The patterns are amazing!
Each link is a PDF file of scanned book/magazine pages from the late 19th and early 20th century.  My personal faves are the ones from the roaring 20s.  Many of the clothing items are very wearable by modern standards.   You can even find crocheted flapper dresses and so many gorgeous hats.
Tons of cross stitch and embroidery patterns including Art Nouveau.
Hundreds of patterns for those who love tatting and lacework too.

I hope this is the right place to post this link ... http://myauntsattic.web-log.nl/ is the weblog of a Dutch woman who digitalized lots of very old cross stitch patterns that had been in her family for a long time.

Don't worry, the weblog is not completely in Dutch: at the end of every blog post there's a message in English too. All her patterns are copy right free. Have fun with them! Smiley

A treasure trove! Thank you!

I already saved the deer.

Holy crap! Has it really been 5 years since anybody has posted in here?  Wowzers. Well a few of the links in the first two or three pages are no longer websites, but that antique pattern library is a treasure trove of awesome! I have a few vintage books with amazing patterns in it and as soon as I get a scanner I will be posting some of the pages. Thanks for an amazing find!
