If you love vintage patterns, then get over to the Commercial Pattern Archive (CoPA) at the Univeristy of Rhode Island. They are allowing free access to their database of vintage patterns until Tuesday, September 25, 2009. To get free access, use “guest” as the username and “pattern” as the password. Go the to Commercial Pattern Archive (CoPA).
(As of Saturday night, I could not log into the database. I don’t know if it’s an error on my part, or if there is a technical glitch on their side. In spite of this, I’m going ahead and posting the now because the clock is ticking. Hopefully you will have better luck than I in accessing the database.)
