A New Look for Vintage Vogue!

Although I began work on my new website last November, it took a lot longer to migrate everything over to this new software than I originally expected. 

If you visit my website in the next week or so, this is what you'll see. Yes, you're at the right place. 

This is the new Vintage Vogue!

There are a lot of new features in the new site.  I have the capacity now to sell virtual products.  Until they're ready, you can download for FREE the pattern for my signature Nostalgic NeedleART crazy quilt block.

I also have free downloadable color cards for:  Colour Streams Hand Dyed Silk Ribbons and Threads, Hanah Bias Cut Silk Ribbons, French Wired Ribbons, WoolFelt® and German Glass Glitter.

The original categories are all listed on the right side, but if you just want to see all of the books or patterns or threads or ribbons that I have, look above in the horizontal header to shop there.

There's an integrated shipping estimator from the USPS, and I can now easily accept PayPal, too.

Those are just a few of the new changes at Vintage Vogue.

Watch for us to go live soon!

Best Easter Wishes Crazy Quilt Block from Vintage Vogue


If you celebrate the season, here's a crazy quilt block featuring one of my favorite postcards from my personal collection.  It's E209 from my Vintage Postcard CD.

Print the block directly onto computer printer fabric with your inkjet printer, then use it as the foundation for your crazy quilt block with the center image already in place. 

To use this foundation pattern, align the edge of your fabric with the dotted line and sew on the straight line.  Flip the fabric over and press toward the dotted line.  Stitch two pieces of fabric together (1-1, 1-2 and 2-1, 2-2 and 3-1, 3-2 and 4-1, 4-2).  Treat as one piece of fabric for 1, 2, 3 and 4.

Piece the block, then embellish it with threads, trims, ribbons and beads.
