Hello there! Here we go! Posting my first video blog. Hope you enjoy learning a bit more about me and my blog and patterns.
Thanks so much to those of you who gave me suggestions of what to talk about on my first video blog! I was a big nervous, but hopefully I’ll get better as I do more :)

You did so good! :D It was almost like getting to hang with you in person! Can’t wait for more videos.

YAY!! Great job! “There’s actually people who SEW the patterns they buy?!?” LOL!! I’m not one of them either! I sew some of them, but they’re just so interesting to look at, that I get the one’s that call to me and I like to see the collection grow over time. It’s like an archeological dig through women’s history, based on something both as ephemeral and timeless as fashion! Great stuff; especially when you can find something, can ‘translate’ what era, and discern the form and context of a particular piece of clothing or pattern. I alway wonder who owned it and why; did they make a garment? where did they wear it? what happened to it? etc. etc. Just fascinating, and I’m glad there’s folks like yourself that continue to promote vintage fashion and patterns (particularly in era’s that I don’t know much about). Looking forward to more video blogs!

Your ongoing smile and happy face were great to look at during the video! So interesting to find out what your drive is to do the things you do! And what a whopper your cat is, wow, he must be heavy ;) Hope to see more video’s of you, it was a pleasure to watch! Well done, Lauren!

Dear Lauren, how nice to meet you. While I have always been interested in Vintage fashion, I felt like I was alone as well. Your work is so lovely, your styling so authentic. Keep up the great work, thanks for sharing yourself and your kitty on video. Happy New Year.

Wonderful job!!! You certainly didn’t look nervous at all! I really enjoyed hearing you talk about why you do what you do (sounds funny typed out like that) as a business! I hope you continue to have greater success!

This was great, Lauren!! Echoing Corinne, it is great to “meet” you, and hear about what got you into vintage clothing, and why you love it. Thanks for posting!

Excellent way to begin what I’m sure will be many more videos! Congratulations on all your successes over the years, and we (the collective vintage clothing enthusiasts) will be honored to continue supporting you in any way we can!
