  • Hello, Birgit! 

    Today, search is working differently for me than it ever has. It is no longer finding partial searches. Example: Searching for 2072 returns, "No results found." However, when I search for the exact title, "Stretch & Sew 2072" I get results with my desired result coming up first.  

    Using the pattern number only is typically how I arrive at the correct page, or derive from the pool of results that the pattern page needs to be created. I'm a little worried this change may make it difficult to find the correct pages.

    Any word if this is temporary or permanent?

    Thanks,  Jackie

  • Hi Tarna, Birgit,

    I am new to creating new pages on this wiki and see you reformatted and moved my Patron Modele entry. Any tips or things I did wrong? 

    Thnks!

    • Hi,

      What I did was rename the page to stay with the pattern naming conventions (in this case, I took out the dash that was not in the pattern number and put the numbers together to match with the other patterns from that maker entered here).

      Then, I resized the picture and just adjusted the spacings, and removed the default bullets (they are just there for suggestions), to make it all look like the other pattern pages.

      You did not do anything "wrong".

      Best regards,

      tarna

  • Hello, Tarna, I've listed a link for this pattern on the pattern page in Fandom. The image there is spotted with mildew. Would you be able to post the image I have on my website in its place? I can email or you may copy the image there.

    Thank you for looking at this.

    • Hi,

      The link did not work, but I found your pattern page.  I think we will keep the current picture - while spotty, it is a bit clearer.

      Best regards,

      tarna

    • Alright. Thank you for checking. I wonder why the link did not work. I just tried and it went through.

    • Hello Kathleen,

      I suspect the link works for you, but not for others because it leads to an "uploads" pagem which is likely restricted.  I typed the pattern number in the search field from there and found the listing page that way..

      Best regards,

      tarna

  • Hi Birgit,

    I just had a good chuckle regarding a simple typo error :Mail Oder 4894 A I guess it should be changed to Mail ORDER instead of 'oder' lol! 

    Cheers Lana

    • Good catch.  I deleted it, since there was already a correctly named page for Kwik Sew 416.

  • Hi Tarna, I acidentally wrote Butterick 5897 A a new page as 5892 A . I have had this happen before and I cannot figure out how to edit the name. Sorry, Tracy

    • Hi,

      I see that you uploaded a picture (the picture is not complete enough to make out the pattern number), is that what you are talking about?

      You did not create a page for either Butterick 5897 A or Butterick 5892 A.

      Either way, if this happens again, you can rename the page (pull-down under the edit menu).

      Best regards,

      tarna

    • Oh, thanks I guess it did not post the rest of the description . It should be 5897.  Tracy

    • Well, you did not create the page at all.  You could still do so...

  • Hello, Tarna -

    It is unusual (at least for me) to find mail order patterns with a copyright.

    However, my copy of the pattern does state ---

    Alice7022.3
    Copyright 1946 by Household Arts, Inc.

    No need to edit the pattern listing again - KS

    • Hi,

      Ha - sorry.  It is highly unusual, but I will absolutely correct it again - my mistake.

      Best regards,

      tarna

    • If there is a clickable link in the Sources/Vendors section of the pattern page, you could look there to purchase.  

      If not, you may want to add your user name to the Wishlist section.

  • Hi Tarna! Thank you for assisting me with my links today. I am not sure how you just make it to my user name on Ebay instead of the full link. If you let me know I would be happy to save you the time. Thanks again!! Nancy

    • Hello Nancy,

      Please take a look at the message I left on your wall.  It explains how to do the vendor link format.

      Best regards,

      tarna
