My very dear friend, teacher, and all around awesome person, Jill, is de-stashing her fiber arts magazines, books, and single patterns. She knows I love these vintage books. I have amassed a pretty good collection of these great old pattern/how-to books. I want to preserve them for future generations. While unpacking a priority mailbox full of magazines from Jill, I came across the adorable patterns from the booklet which are the subject of today's blog. I absolutely had to share.
Some of the American Thread Company booklets are missing a publication date in the cover I found that Amazon.com listed a couple books as being published in 1967. Including Baby Infants to 18 Months. I think that's a good approximation given the styles of the print, names of the yarns used ect. (I still have some of the books my grandmother owned for comparison) Plus I fall on the vintage side of the library myself LOL!
I will showcase the vintage patterns in "Baby Infants to 18 Months" today. (just going by size and for no other reason) As is the custom with these blog entries I'll attempt to bring these vintage style patterns up to date with recent additions patterns from modern designers. (I have another vintage book to share soon)
It's been fun to sort through the best of the patterns in this American Thread Star Book # 210 and see how designers have brought some vintage designs up to date for us. Beautiful. Thanks to all of you who have taken time today!
