McCalls Patterns was started by a man name James McCall and has been in business since the 19th century. Very impressive, considering how long they have been around and still going stronger than ever.
Here is a brief but interesting snippet from Wikipedia, of how the company was started.
McCalls Pattern Company also manufactures patterns under the Butterick, Vogue, and Kwik Sew pattern names.
Keeping up with the new styles is easy, you can go to the McCalls website to see what is current.
Their patterns range from apparel, to home decor and crafts. I get very excited when I am online and see new patterns for the new coming season.
Sewing is my passion. I do spend a bit of time perusing the online pattern websites to see the latest and how they compare with trends in the retail world.
I can tell you that the pattern companies have learned to keep up. We home sewers are demanding the most current styles and trends and they are available. There isn't a lot for men I agree, but you can find patterns for men and more for boys.
You will find fashion for women, children and men. They offer patterns for costumes, home decor, crafts, both seasonal and every day. Below are the categories you will find.
