The VSPC Galleria funds “Patterns Helping Patterns” which gives incomplete patterns a home. We take incomplete pattern lots and reimburse shipping. All patterns of any year past and present are welcome in any condition.
If you have unprinted pattern pieces that look like blank pieces of paper to you we will take them along with all other orphaned pieces. They will be paired up with their matching patterns for safe keeping. We do get duplicate patterns donated to make a whole complete pattern.

To help with funding we have additional scans of the patterns in the archive here. Incomplete patterns donated are scanned front and back as well as the instruction sheets front and back. If featured in catalogs available those scans are included as research and uploading progresses. The site changes weekly as the patterns are counted and inventoried. The VSPC Galleria is a PAID MONTHLY MEMBERSHIP digital library.
To view the Galleria is $15 a month and is non recurring . The payment is for 30 days from the time you pay, and there is no contract. You pay for the month you view.
