Where vintage sewing is for everyone.
The history of women is often told through the treasures they made with their own two hands. I was raised in an antique shop and my mother taught me to find the stories of women shining through each loving stitch of the clothes they left behind.
At Mrs. Depew Vintage LLC, we have been providing high-quality vintage sewing patterns, ephemera, books, and research resources since 2008. But well before that, I (the Mrs. Behind the brand) was raised in my mother's antique clothing shop, helping her hunt for and restore beautiful and rare antique clothing pieces for theater and film productions. That passion for sewing and commitment to preserving history has made Mrs. Depew Vintage a trusted name in the vintage sewing community.
The Mrs. Depew Vintage Studio is part office space, part warehouse, and ALL museum where we work to preserve, restore, and protect sewing patterns and their history for the next generation to learn from. The sewing desk often does double duty as an antique paper repair and restoration space.
Our extensive research library houses sewing patterns, catalogs, quarterlies, magazines, pattern books, tailor systems, and manuals from the 1860s through the 1990s. We currently have over 3,000 research and dating texts in English, French, Spanish, Italian, Norwegian, Swedish, Dutch, German, and Russian.
