The library has a large collection of books about sewing. Jen Winn, sewing enthusiast and on-call staff person most often at Hollywood, has enhanced the book collection with this list of some of her best sewing picks from the Web.
If you're looking for information or inspiration from vintage pattern envelopes, Vintage Pattern Wiki is the place to go. If you've ever bought a grab bag of patterns at an estate slae or thrift store, you know what I'm talking about. It's not always easy to find details on old patterns, but the Vintage Pattern Wiki is a great place to start.
