Join Our Lutterloh Sewcial!

Announcing our long awaited
Vintage Lutterloh Sewcial!

In our ongoing effort to initiate discussion about using the Lutterloh patterns we would like to make a
special limited time offer!

From now until Wednesday, September 30th, 2009 we will be taking e-mail requests for the patterns needed to join in our first Vintage Lutterloh Sewcial.

The patterns will
not be posted to the blog so be sure to send your e-mail request before September 30th, 2009.

After the start of our sewcial on October 1st, 2009 no more requests will be honored (so please don't ask.)

So how do we start?
We will send the same patterns to each reader participating in the project all on the same day, October 1st, 2009.

Anyone requesting the patterns will be expected to participate in our Sewcial by sending comments and a completed photo of their project.

What are we making?

Once everyone receives their patterns we will all begin using them to create our own vintage 1930s and 1940s
inspired APRONS!

The holidays are just around the corner! These retro style aprons can make great hostess gifts for Thanksgiving, Christmas, Hanukkah and of course you'll need one for yourself too!

We should remind everyone, these patterns are for your private use only and must not be posted on the internet in any form! This offer is not intended to be a free distribution of these patterns. We expect each recipient of the patterns to send comments on their progress. These can be as simple as a progress update or certainly any questions or helpful tips you encounter along the way. We all know that a picture is worth a thousand words so please feel free to e-mail us a photo if you need to demonstrate a question about your project.

What should we do when we're finished?

Once we start using our patterns there will be a four week time limit to finish our aprons. We would like to have a gallery of the finished projects so please send a photo by October 30th, 2009 in an e-mail as soon as you are finished. In your e-mail please include a note of your permission for us to post your photo on our blog.

If you don't think you have the time right now to participate in the project discussion, please do not request the pattern. Anyone requesting the patterns but not participating in the project will not receive any future project patterns. Please don't ruin this type of project for the people who truly want to use these patterns. As long as everyone requesting the patterns joins in and we are able to maintain an active discussion there will be other opportunities later.

Remember we are counting on you to keep this an active discussion so everyone can learn from our experiences! This is vintage after all and we will need one another to figure it all out.


  1. I'd love to participate. I still need to get a set of curves but I should have them before the start date. And while I have a lovely set of vintage Lutterloh (with models dating from 1972-1974) and the lastest releases, this will be my first project. An apron seems suitably 'easy' for my first one! I may need my hand held a bit.

    Aprons? Can't wait. I'm in.

  3. Don't forget you need to send an e-mail before Sept. 30th to request the patterns. Read the post again to get the addresses.

  4. I can't wait to get started! Will we have a choice of the waist down kind or the kind that covers from the neck down? I'm sorry I don't have any experience with aprons but I desperately need one. Thanks!!

  5. You must e-mail us in order to join the Apron Sewcial. We need your e-mail addresses in order to send you the lovely apron patterns we have planned.

    Please e-mail us to the address in the posting.

    You'll love these aprons!

  6. I'm in. I'll email when I'm home from vacation. Sounds super fun!

  7. Ann and Fonnell, you know I am in for sure and have already emailed Fonnell.
    Itching to see what we're going to do though!!

  8. I am super sad to say that I messed up this one. It's been sitting on my dress form because I don't know how to proceed. I know it's super simple for some of you, but I am stuck. And embarassed. :/ I guess I'll take some pictures to show you all. Can post them again tonight.
