McCalls Patterns
A brief history of McCalls Sewing Patterns

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.

McCall’s, a brief history

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.

  • Here is a tip that may help. I have a file on my desk top that I call pattern wish list.
  • When the new styles come out, I save the pattern I like in my file and when I want to make some thing or know there is a sale at my local fabric store, I can refer to this file easily and write down the pattern in my wish list.
