Though I have been a fan of Folkwear for years, I am still the “new” owner of Folkwear, and I am learning a LOT about this company as I go about the daily business of its business.

So, I thought I would list a few interesting facts I’ve learned about Folkwear over the past months,
Did you know . . .

Oh, Molly, I am so glad you have taken on Folkwear Patterns! I remember making some great things with the patterns many years ago. I’m following your blog and Instagram and FB. Wonderful!

Thanks for your comment! Yes, Folkwear has been around a while! You can see all the patterns at the top (under Shop). The older patterns are mostly the ones with the lowest numbers. Enjoy!

Oh my gosh! I didn’t think "folkwear patterns existed anymore. I bought them in ’70’s & ’80’s then seemed like company was sold & they left Marin County, California. Somehow I’d love to see what patterns have been made since that time. Is that possible?
