Gently used sewing patterns
Do you have patterns that you no longer use or that have outlived their usefulness for you? Need a pattern one size larger or smaller? Just don’t sew any more and want to get rid of your patterns? Well bring your gently used patterns to the convention and drop them off in the Riverview Room. If the envelope has become worn, please put the entire pattern in a clear freezer baggy so pieces don’t come up missing. Reuse, recycle, don’t make them part of a landfill!.
