10 Additional Thoughts.

I've never heard of them but it could be because I'm an Aussie. However, I'm off to have a looksee. Thanks for bringing it to my attention.

After looking at the new catalog, there are several of the designs that I'm definitely going to make.

And Kate loves for Folkwear users to email photos of their creations to her so she can add them to her gallery page.

I'm still on the hunt for Folkwear patterns. We catalogued a bunch of them last year in the Commercial Pattern Archive.

I first thing I ever made using a pattern was the Folkwear Regency dress in about 1981.

I made the Kinsale Cloak for my roommate in college, 30 years ago. It is still one of my proudest accomplishments.

Thank you for bringing attention to Folkwear. I started selling their patterns in 1976 when I opened a fiber shop in Evanston, Illinois. I made each pattern as they came out. Even though I can no longer wear most of them - 30+ years does add a bit of weight to a woman, I still have them in my collection. Can't wait to make the hat!

I'm glad to hear that so many of you are also Folkwear fans. I would have guessed as much!

In the small world department, as it turns out, Kate and I have a friend in common. This friend worked at Lark with Kate, and I taught her two sons. She was one of my all-time favorite parents in 28 years in the classroom.

I ADORE Folkwear patterns, and started buying and sewing with them in the 70s. I have made many and have always been thrilled with the results. My most recent creation was about a month ago, making the women's hippari jacket for my aunt. It came out beautifully as ever!

Bravi Lizzie and Kate!
