Threads magazine has an announcement about helping to test patterns from 1912 that will be reproduced to celebrate the Titanic's Centennial.

It sounds intriguing. I signed up today!

I'm doing the kid's dress and apron this week. Several people are helping make the instructions clearer as well.

Hi loti, I'm so glad others are doing this too. I did search PR before I posted this and found nothing. I just searched again and got nothing for the Message Board. Where can I see what others are doing?
Thanks!

Advanced Search " Vintage Pattern Lending Library", the first few are from the 1912 project and you have some of their other patterns on down the list. I know there was a discussion started somewhere.

Here's the discussion here.
There's a facebook page for the group as well, and a blog where you can see all of the contributors projects.
