Free Vintage Crochet Patterns from 1840-1850
Something you may not know about me…I love genealogy, researching family trees and antiques – I love pottering about in antique shops and seeing everything from years gone by.
I love holding something in my hands that I know someone else, many years ago also held in their hands. There is just something special in that to me – perhaps I am odd 😉
When I am unable to browse in shops I like to browse online – here are a few more vintage crochet patterns you might like to take a look at.

Thank you so much for posting the link to the antique pattern library! It seems silly, but I’m literally giggling with excitement right now! Haha! I honestly thought that the only way to find these were estate sales or actual antique dealers/shops!
