I recently ordered a used copy of this Kwik Sew book from a Goodwill store on Amazon. The condition was listed as good. I've bought used books this way many times and have always been pleased with them. Well, this copy arrived without the master patterns---the main thing I wanted!
Just another case of the trouble you can get into when you assume!

You used to be able to order just the patterns from Kwik Sew when they were Kwik Sew. For $5.00 they sold extra pattern sets. You might try the website that has Kwik Sew now, and see if that is still possible, or maybe someone here could supply that! Try the classifieds! If I had them, I would, but I do not have this book. Good luck!

Looks like there is a few left. I would send
It back. You paid for the book and the pattern.
Call amazon you should get a response .

How did you pay? If paypal, call them. If credit card, pay them. You didn't get what you paid for.

The same exact thing happened to me, when I bought a used copy of this book but for babies from an amazon vendor.

Unless the listing said selling "as is", contact them and tell them the patterns are missing. That's what I did and my money was refunded.

The problem is these sellers don't sew and have no clue about master patterns.

I'd also send it back. Amazon likes for people to be pleased.

When I clicked on "details" about a used one it read if the book comes with a CD or code those might be missing...BUT it did not mention the pattern book might not have its patterns.

These books are so great it would be well worth it to return that copy and purchase a new, unused one. The are useful not only for the basic patterns with variations, but for the professional style sewing techniques.
I have the Babies, Todddlers and the Childrens ones that I purchased in the '90s and used them countless times for grandchildren and am now using them for great grandchildren!
