Introducing The Ephemera Book! (and a Giveaway!)

I met Janine Vangool of UPPERCASE at the Creative Connection event in 2010. We were both on a panel to discuss publishing books.

Ephemera book cover and inside

I admired her work the minute I was introduced to it, and I have enjoyed her Uppercase magazine for years. The Vintage Made Modern story below was my contribution to an issue a few years ago. Janine’s recently created an amazing series called the Encyclopedia of Inspiration, “beautiful books to inspire, inform and delight”. I was lucky enough to have some pieces from my collection included in the first volume, Feedsacks: The Colorful History of a Frugal Fabric. My studio and collection were most recently featured in the Ephemera volume.

This is an example of Uppercase, a magazine “for the creative and the curious”. As you can see Janine and I also share a love of vintage buttons. Note the border pattern in the title bar and spine of the cover, these patterns inspired an Uppercase fabric line Janine creates for Windham Fabrics.

And we have made up several of our Indygo Junction patterns in her fabulous Uppercase Fabrics–all three “volumes” of it! Be sure to head over to the Indygo Junction Blog post featuring several of the patterns and fabrics!

Here are a few pages of Encyclopedia of Inspiration: Ephemera sharing my vintage notions collection as well as my Woman’s Institute archive.

And, we made the cover!! The gentleman in red stripes spine image is a button card from my collection!

This book is filled with wonderful artists and designers, a few talented friends of mine including Cathy Holden and Eliza Bullock. Be sure to take a look at their wonderful work!  

Janine offered a copy of Ephemera for me to give away, so in celebration of the the 103rd anniversary of the Woman’s Institute this month we will be giving away a copy of both Vintage Notions and the Ephemera book! This giveaway is for one lucky winner.  We’ve included several ways to enter, and since we are giving away a book by a Canadian and American Author, we’ve opened this giveaway to residents in the USA, Canada, the European Union, and Australia. Also be sure to follow me on Instagram and join my Facebook Group Vintage Made Modern!

    I am so grateful that you were in UPPERCASE’s newsletter. What an amazing, beautiful publication you’ve made. I love finding new artists, and I am enthusiastically subscribing to your newsletter.

    My favorite thing is finding vintage buttons on their original cards at thrift stores. The cards are sometimes more beautiful than the buttons. Oo, and the same with vintage needles, in their original cards. I love finding beautiful graphic design on such simple things.

    Thank you for the giveaway! I have some vintage silk fabric my grandpa bought in Thailand in the 60s, and my grandma never used it, then gave it to my mom who never used it, then my mom gave it to me a few years ago. I am still trying to decide what to make from it, but am determined to actually use it this year. 🙂

    I inherited my mother’s button box. Sometimes, when I’m feeling stressed, or when I miss my mom, I open up that old box–the same one I remember from my childhood, a pink tin candy box–and let the old buttons flow through my fingers. Those buttons, now “vintage”, as am I, I guess, are my favorite vintage notions.

    I have a few vintage notions/ephemera in my loft/sewing room. I have framed reproduction prints of “Godey’s Americanized Paris Fashions 1856” along with other prints of fashions from the early 1800s to the 1960s. I also have a children’s My Sister sewing machine from the 1950s and a round plaster clock from the 1970s which has the sewing items of spools of thread, thimbles, scissors, measuring tape, etc., encircling the face of the clock. Winning the Vintage Notions and Ephemera Books would be a joy to read, and reference, in the days to come. 🙂

    My favourite vintage notion is a particular button from my mother’s button collection. I’d completely forgotten about it until she passed her collection on to me several years ago: the moment I opened the tin and spotted that button, the childhood memories of sorting and arranging the buttons from the tin flooded back.

    Recently my sister & I helped our mother make the move from the house we grew up in—and where she continued to live for some fifty plus years—to a retirement apartment. That involved finding new homes for many of the things she & Dad had bought at auctions & flea markets. Needless to say, a fair number made their way to my home, including wonderful vintage sewing notions: boxes of purple silk thread, exquisite buttons & belt buckles mounted on cards, packets of needles, hooks & eyes . . . ahhhhh.

    My favorite notion, which I inherited from an old family friend years ago,(a vintage notion I believe) is a button hole blade cutter. It was curious. When I received it, I didn’t know what it was. It looked like a really fancy tool that you would find in the garage toolbox. It is a metal container which unscrews at the top, with blades of different sizes stashed inside. To interchange the blades you simply screw it in the bottom and tighten. The sizes of the blades match the different button holes you would have sewing various garments. I use it a lot, because it is precise and the blades are still sharp. cheers, Tanya

    I started collecting buttons when I was a kid. They were small and interesting, no one minded giving up a few, and they liked to tell stories of what the buttons came off of. My dad loved going to auctions, so I would end up with the miscellaneous buttons in his $1 junk boxes, you know the ones where they just can’t get a bid. I haven’t added to the collection in years, but I think I’ll have to start looking again!

    My favorite notion:

    Once a task has begun never leave it, til it’s done.
    Be the job big or small do it right or not at all.

    Oh! you mean craft? Sewing & quilting

    My favorite vintage notion is the peach plastic thread holder from my Grandma. The thread holder is shaped like a ferris wheel, with each seat holding 4 spools of thread. The seats spin around as on a ferris wheel!

    I love the vintage pin cushion that was made by my great grandmothers sister. It is made of small pieces of velvet and embroidered with feather stitching. It is edged with a fringe of glass beads. It is too fragile to use as it is probably 120 years old but just looking at it makes me smile.

    When I was 5, my mother let me sew her spare buttons on scraps of material. (She always removed them later for use on a real garment or to keep for later.) I still have some of those buttons 61 years later. I would love to take another trip down memory lane with these!
