Dear Crochet Friend,

Mary Toth fled Hungary during World War 2, bringing with her only her two children and a few clothes. 

Her husband remained in Hungary, jailed by the Nazis.

After arriving in Miami via New York, she went to work immediately in the garment industry, earning very low wages, but it was enough to provide shelter and other necessities for little son Joseph and her daughter, Violet.

At the end of a long day sewing at the garment factory, Mary would make dinner for the children, then go to work on her needlecraft projects.

She loved to make things for others, both for the reward of a smile and “thank you”, as well as a small profit when appropriate.  It helped keep her happy, and make ends meet, as she awaited (and prayed for) the arrival of her husband.

Many years passed and, her husband, Joseph Sr., did finally arrive from Hungary and they lived a long life together in the United States. 

Mary was my grandmother.  She passed away in 2001, at the ripe old age of 88.  She had taught me to crochet only weeks before.

One of her final projects was a beautiful afghan, which she gave me just before she died.  It was knitted from a wartime pattern book.  One of many pattern books my grandmother collected over the years.

Unfortunately, most of the historic pattern books printed during her life are out of print, and original copies are nearly impossible to find.

But, thanks to the internet, I've been able to preserve these historic documents for you, and all who love to crochet.

It's true.  After extensive copyright research and digital preservation, you can own the same pattern books my grandmother (and perhaps your grandmother, too) used.

Here's What Others Have To Say About This

Vintage Crochet Pattern Collection:


"Hi Tabitha,
    I did get my vintage crochet cd in the mail.  Boy you believe in fast shipping I had it in no time it seemed.  I haven't had a chance to do any of the projects yet.  But I will say I am very pleased with the quality and lay out of the cd.  I am sure I will have many hours of creativity with this cd.  Bringing happyness to my friends and family that love my crafts as gifts.  I do feel like I really got my moneys worth with this product.
thanks for the great work,"

Penny, Santa Clarita, CA




 Just a short note to let you know how much I look forward to trying out some of the patterns in the “Vintage Crochet Pattern Library”  I received the CD in two days and immediately popped it into my computer.  There are so many patterns and they are so gorgeous!  I don’t know which one to start first.  Some of these designs incorporate Hairpin Lace techniques which I have been interested in trying, I just couldn’t find any patterns until now that used this technique.  The instructions are very easy to understand with finished pictures for every project.  And the best part of all is the pattern books can never be misplaced or ruined because they are on a CD!  No more time spent searching for that specific pattern book.  Just pop the CD into your computer and your ready to go! 

Your service and attention has been very professional.  It’s been a pleasure doing business with you.  Please keep me in mind should you have any other products available.

What's The Cost For This Collection Of Rare, Vintage Pattern Books?

Rare pattern books are, well... very difficult to find.

So, unfortunately, the original copies in my collection are not for sale.  They're just too scarce and almost impossible to replace, especially in near mint condition like these.  If you were fortunate enough to stumble across a copy, you could expect to pay at least $20, even up to $100 EACH.  Purchased separately these rare books would cost you at least $364.50.  (They cost me MUCH more than that).  Even if I cut the price in half, You'd still have to part with over $150.00.  To me, that's just not practical for most of us.  So... I'm sharing these collector's items with you for immediate download AND on compact disk at a price anyone can afford...
