Library Shares Passion for Patterns

Published on Wednesday, 4 August 2021 at 12:39:44 PM

Sewing enthusiasts looking to get creative in Denmark are in luck with a new pattern sharing program available at the Denmark Public Library.

With generous support and encouragement from some local community members, the Pattern Library was launched this week to a positive reception.

The Pattern Library consists of a small and growing number of patterns which cover the bases for all levels of ability and experience with a sewing machine.

Patterns are available to borrow from the Denmark Public Library just like a book.

Senior Librarian Robyn Fairclough said the Pattern Library is a creative addition for the local community.

“The nice thing about doing something like the Pattern Library is that it reinspires people to get the old sewing box out or invites them to start something new,” Robyn said.
“So many people have shared their recollections of the clothes their mothers used to make for them and it’s been lovely to hear those stories.”

Sewing clothes, bags and everything in between is a great way to recycle, up-cycle, individualise and create pieces to keep into the future.

“With so many sustainably minded and creative souls in Denmark, we thought the community would like this little initiative and we’re encouraging our community members to share the word of our new Pattern Library.”

The Pattern Library follows similar community sharing initiatives run by the Denmark Public Library including the Seed Library and the Seasonal Spice Club.
