  • Hey Petite Main! I'm Jamie from FANDOM's Community Development team! Not sure if we never asked you if you are interested in turning on the Discussions feature for this community, and migrating the Threaded Forums across as well.

    In case you are unaware of the feature, Discussions was introduced last year to help communities engage with users and fans. It lives in its own space on the wiki and allows users to interact with other members of the community. It is also mobile friendly and gives mobile users a chance to contribute and engage with the community, and possibly turn them into wiki editors as well. Discussions also links with our FANDOM Apps, which this community has and it allows app users to easily take part in Discussions as well. You can read more about Discussions here.

    For more information on migrating forums to Discussions, you can check out this blog over on Community Central that explains everything in detail.

    If you have some concerns, Discussions, and Forums can exist side-by-side in case you do not want to migrate just yet. However, eventually all Forums will be migrated over to Discussions and Forums will be sunsetted as a feature, so getting ahead of the curve is never a bad idea.

    Feel free to have an open discussion with your community about this, and I'm available for any questions you might have. Have a good one!

  • I have been looking for McCall's 9517 (bell bottoms) for years!! Found you site today, plugged in the # and Walla!  I bought it! Then I read the instructions...said not to put in the number that way, you won't find it, or was that only if you were posting?

    Anyway, THANKS for a great site!  I'll be back!

    • Awesome! I am so glad you found the pattern you have been looking for. There are so many fantastic patterns on vintage patterns wikia. I list all my vintage patterns here and they link to my shop Penelope Rose at Artfire. Not sure who you bought your pattern from, but all the vendors are super cool. Also, not sure about putting the number in in a certain way, but as you said you found your pattern and was able to buy it, so it all worked out great. So, untilyour return,enjoy and happy sewing!

  • I'm trying to create a new page for the first time and can't figure out how to add all of the categories and can't seem to find a template. Help! I started Vogue 1962-A. Also, I tried to add a better photo to Vogue 2215 A -- two photos are on the article, but I don't know if there's a way to sub the main photo to improve it. Any guidance appreciated.

  • Hi Petite Main

    I was looking at the vendor links page and noticed that there are quite a few shops that are no longer open. I would be happy to go through and remove the invalid links but didn't want to do so without checking with you first. Let me know if it's ok with you if I remove the links to shops that are either invalid links of go to shops that had their last sale over a year ago. 


    Thanks

    Mary Beth

    • Hi Mary Beth, I'm not quite sure because I don't know if we can know that those shops are definitely closed. Did you ask Tarna what she thinks about it? It would be good to have her advice as well. Kind regards, Petite Main (talk) 08:39, April 9, 2015 (UTC)

    • Thanks - Nevermind I have decided to liquidate and get out of the business. I was concerned since several vendors have pappered their links throughout the list and some end on dead links.  I will remove my link at the appropriate time.

  • How do I get my shop added to the pattern vendor section? I was reading the rules, but didn't see a place to sign up.

    The name of my store is Vintage Sewing Shoppe. It's on Etsy. The web address is www.etsy.com/shop/vintagesewingshoppe. I sell all types of vintage items for sewing machines, notions, patterns, trims, laces and other things. I have been up and running for a few weeks now. I am with the Pattern Patter Team. I have 57 vintage patterns. I add more everyday. I try to sell patterns that haven't been cut. Sometimes I will if I think it may sell and that's when I count all the pieces and I examine each piece to make sure that they can be used.

    I hope to be added to this wonderful group of shop owners.

    Thank you for your consideration,

    Melody Thomas

    • Hello Melody and welcome. I added the link to your etsy shop on the http://vintagepatterns.wikia.com/wiki/Vintage_pattern_vendors page, You're most welcome here! In order to learn how to use the wiki to add your patterns if they are not already there (otherwise you just have to add your links in the "vendors" section after the other links already there, if there are some), you should read the About section and Create a page section. If you have some problems, don't worry and juste leave a message on my wall or on the wall of Tarna, being on different part of the world you might find one of us, depending on the hour. Have a nice time here, we're all lovers of vintage patterns!

  • Hi,

    Why did you remove my edits to Hollywood 1811?  I added from the envelope back, looked up the dating based on publication lists, and added categories, all of which you removed...

    Please let me know.

    • Sorry Tarna, yesterday I was editing Hollywood 1811 when my line went off and today i just clicked on it and I didn't see there were other edits (and wikia didn't tell me). You can revert to your version. Really sorry! Have a nice day!

    • How odd.   Good to know that the failsafes are not always working...  Something to look out for. 

      I was just puzzled and thought you might have had a good reason.
