This week, Starts at 60 member Robyn has a question for the sewing fans and dressmakers in the Starts at 60 community:

What do dressmakers do with their old patterns? Do I bin them, or is there another home for them?

Can you help? Have you found any interesting uses for your old patterns?
We’d love to hear from you! Simply leave a comment below.

  2. When my sewing day were over the whole lot of them ended up in the op shop!

  3. Some people collect vintage patterns. I know one of my daughters does. You can sell them on EBay or Etsy.
