Welcome to Old Paper Patterns. 

I realised how many paper patterns are out there and how many beautiful out of print patterns head to landfill or recycling becasue people do see that they have any value.    Now I have catlalogued scanned and listed patterns for sale.  Envelope condition varies from Excellent to Torn and Damaged and some with no envelope at all..  When going through these patterns I realised that some are 70+ Years Old and to stand the test of time and still be uncut and intact at this time is remarkable.   I have opened each envelope unless factory sealed and glanced at the contents inside.  All patterns are as listed but its not an exact science.

Listings will continue to be updated on a regular basis as new stock is sought.

When looking through the listings you will find that I have classified patterns in 3 ways Uncut, Cut to Size and Cut to Specific Size. 

Postage will be calculated on Australia Post charges.  Prices will vary depending on Quantity.   

Old Paper Patterns are now Accepting International Orders with Paypal.  

I am indroducing a new way of checking all my cut patterns I will be offering a certificate of guarantee which will show the buyer what pattern pieces are included in the envelope and any exclusions or alterations that may have been made to the original pattern.   I reassures the buyer they are buying a quality item.   If the pattern is uncut it will be clearly listed with the same guarantee.    I will update you when the new patterns are listed.

I hope you enjoy Old Paper Patterns and if you have any questions Please dont hesitate to message me.

Hi Everyone, 

2021 was not a great year for us all hopefully 2022 will bring us a brighter outlook. 

Due to personal circumstances the updates to the site were not made.  I have been in touch with techmayer in the new year so hopefully we can get my website updated and functional for everyone to use.  

 Thank you to everyone that has contacted me via email or by phone been happy to help customers get patterns.   

My Website guys https://tecmyer.com.au/ are working to offer me a state of the art shopping cart.  In the mean time a lot of the functions are not working operating because of the update.  In the short term if you would like to order anything from the site site please email me what you would like to purchase and and a paypal invoice can be sent and the transaction can be acted upon.  I am also accepting Direct Debit as well.  Those details with be offered at time of purchase.
