Browse “A STORE” categories for items that interest you.  Payment can be made with personal check, postal money order or Paypal.  Send an e-mail to NCcabin@aol.com with your order, your shipping address and your method of payment.  I will respond with a total, including shipping and  sales tax for Florida addresses.  If you choose Paypal, I will send you an invoice.

I’m sorry this is more tedious than the one click purchase option on other upscale sites. This is more like a yard sale–bargain prices, changing inventory, and limited quantities.   You might be surprised at some of the unique items  I have in my stash/hoard/collection!~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Belles and Beaus patterns were first designed and marketed by Betty Rast of Alabama.  They were a staple of most heirloom stitchers’ pattern collections. Years later the business was sold to Judith Dobson who added more designs to the collection.  The patterns for sale below are all unused, though a little shelf worn from waiting to be made up.    Intended for hand embroidery, their unique style and techniques can often be reproduced or tweaked with machine embroidery.

The price for each is $8, less than their original price years ago and far less than their value.

  5. Carlita Brown

    I’m searching for the Belles & Beaus pattern which features a bonnet with tatting insertion and edging. It is hand embroidered. Do you have it? Thanks.
    Carlita

  6. Carlita, I’ve looked through all my Belles and Beaus patterns and it seems that I do not have that pattern. I’m sorry I can’t help you.

  7. I would like to purchase the McCall’s vintage blouse pattern in size 12 or 16. Is it still available?

  8. Yes, Elizabeth, both sizes are still available.

  9. Evette Nixon

    Hi Janice,
    I was wondering if that beautiful Martha Pullen Peignor and Gown set pattern is still available. I was wondering if the McCalls Vintage Blouse pattern in a size 12 was still available. If so please email me with a PayPal invoice.

  10. Yes, Evette, they are available. Thank you–I have sent a Paypal invoice. Two more patterns leaving my sewing room–HURRAH!!!

  11. How can I get a wedding ring dress pattern. I made one 16 years ago but lost my pattern in Hurricane Katrina? The dress you made is beautiful. I now have twin girls and would like to make them this dress. Thanks for any help you can give me.

  12. Janet, I have an extra copy of this gorgeous pattern. I bought it, lost it, bought another and then found the original–probably not the only time that sort of thing has happened. I’ll write to you privately about it.

  13. Hello Janice, I would like the pattern Belles and beaus, Circa 1927 if it is still available. Thank you, Tammy

  14. Tammy, I am sorry but it has been sold. I neglected to remove it from the web site and apologize for your inconvenience.

  15. Marlyne Clarke

    I would like to order the Belles and Beaus Mc Call’s Heirloom Blouse pattern. Hope you still have it.

  16. Marlyne, I have written to you privately. I am not sure which pattern you would like.

  17. I saw a photo of a Belles and Beaus bonnet pattern in a very old Creative Needle magazine. The bonnet band featured tatted insertion. I would love to find the pattern. Any chance you have one?

  18. Jane, I’ve done a preliminary search for the pattern but have one more box to check. If I have this pattern for you I’ll be in touch–within the next two days.

  19. Patty McGeary

    Hi Janice,
    I’m looking for an Angel Gown pattern. I saw a Pinterest post for a gown pattern by Lezette Thomason, and a link to your site. Would you be able to assist me in getting a copy of the pattern? I’m trying to make gowns for the local NICU. Thank You… Patty

  20. Patty, I know others have looked for this pattern but I don’t know where or if they found it. I suggest you message Lezette Thomason on her facebook page. For those who are not “friends” there is a place for messages. Lezette would know where the pattern might be available. Good luck. Making those little gowns for the local NICU is a wonderful mission.

  21. I am looking for the pattern Belles and Beaus Circa 1938 christening gown. Would you have it or know where I can get it ? Thanks

  22. Dianne, I had that for sale but it is sold. Other than googling the name, I don’t know where you might get it. It’s a lovely pattern. Good luck. I hope you can find it.

  23. Emeline Loughlin

    I would like to buy Belles and Beaus 1946 . Is this still available?

  24. Emeline, I’m sorry but that pattern has been sold.

  25. Do you know where I can find Belles and Beaus circa 1931 pattern? Thank you!!

  26. No, Carol, I don’t I had all Belles and Beaus patterns but donated them to the smockers in New Orleans and Baton Rouge area after hurricane Katrina. I kept a few and will let you know if I have that one. So sorry for the slow reply.
