FOLKWEAR: Patterns with timeless style

Earth Guild stocks the complete line. If you purchase six or more patterns, any mix, the unit price drops. If your order total - everything you get at one time, not just Folkwear - reaches $100, you will receive further discounts, from 5% at $100 up to 20% at $400.
Anything worn or used, by anybody, from anytime, may be in the Folkwear library. Nobody else ever tried for such breadth and inclusiveness. Whether for fancy dress, every-day dressing up, ethnic costuming, or social research, Folkwear is a treasure-house.

All patterns are multi-size with full-size pieces. Easy-sew and special techniques are explained and illustrated. Historical lore sets the garment in its own time and place. Instructions and suggestions for traditional embellishments are included, and for some patterns there are knitted and crocheted accessories.
