Thank you for shopping with us! Vintage means : This store is entirely rescued items from other sewing rooms, fabric stashes, store closures or estate sales, when there is a noticeable flaw with a piece, its noted in description. Items are listed in'found' condition. Sometimes this means a piece of fabric may have been laundered previously to take sizing out which means it will be softened and ready for pressing before you cut it on your end, or they are pieces someone never got to and still have sizing in them.I do not launder items, so if its a vintage item from an estate or old forgotten stash, it may have a scent like closet storage this is normal for vintage items. The new studio is over 800 sq. Feet, so if you are looking for something specific send me a note and I will give the inventory a hunt. Only about 20% of the inventory is actually listed in the store. I may have what your looking for. Vintage patterns may have worn or fragile package edges from improper storage in its previous home. They may have old price tags or stickers from a life of homelessness in a clearance bin or estate sale closet. Stickers are removed here, but sometimes sticky residue remains. If a vintage pattern has been cut and used, it will be noted as cut and complete as each of them is hand checked and written on the instructions sheet to verify contents before photos are taken. This is an endless chore of appreciation, adoration and respect for the style or era of a pattern and does not necessarily lower the price of an item just because it has been cut. Checking cut patterns for completeness is a monster chore. Each cut pattern will have an inspection number #32 written on the back to verify that it has been hand counted and checked. Quilt Quality : When there is not a maker mark on a fabric I have to make a decision on description and use "Quilt Quality Cotton" as a way of indicating that it is something I would use on one of my quilts.
My favorite fabrics are Cranston and Kaufman or Moda, so it has to have that feel or weight to it for me to call it "QQ". Other fabrics may be suitable for quilting, but not necessarily the original intended use. Remains factory folded or uncut. Fragile : A vintage pattern from the 40s -60s may have the word fragile in the description.
If it does, it means that the item may have sensitive dart marks or because of its age or pervious bad storage needs a bit of taping or has already been taped by previous seamstress not much, but some smallish salvageable issue. Pattern means : pattern, template, paper...... Sew yourself or hire a seamstress. I wish this didn't need spelling out here, but once a month there is someone who is upset they didn't receive a fully made gown or some such thing.
