I moved a few months ago and slowly setting up my sewing place. I have a huge box of older patterns. I know there are a lot out of style or I will never make. I hate to throw anyway. My question, do you all throw old patterns away or is there someplace that could use them. Taking suggestions. Thanks

You can sell them on ebay. I just listed some patterns from the 70's that I thought would never sell and there is an interest in them. Or if you don't want to bother with that you can donate them.

Lots of folks here would buy them. Many patterns translate well into the present, especially the classic styles. Setting up the sale would be a lot of work as most sellers here will photo front and back of each envelope and sell each pattern separately. What about Ebay?

I have an attic full of them. Most I keep for a detail, or because I do.

The RTW contest I want to do can be made from a variety of these types of patterns, although I'll probably just draft it since it's actually easier then rummaging in my attic.

I sell them here, in the Classifieds section. Yes, I do scan front and back of each pattern, and keep them in my Picasa folder.
