The Fold Line is an sewing pattern shop and online sewing community. In fact you could say that we are the one stop shop for all your dressmaking pattern needs! Founded in 2015 we are the home for people who love sewing and making their own clothes. You can expect to find lots of inspiration for your next make and catch up on all the latest sewing news on our sewing blog and vlog.

We also have an extensive sewing pattern database where you can use our pattern finder tool to search over 10,000 patterns plus read lots of sewing pattern reviews from the community. We are big supporters of independent pattern designers and many of the sewing patterns in our database are available to buy. We sell both paper and PDF sewing patterns, shipping worldwide.

We also offer a sewing pattern copy shop printing service. It’s the best of both worlds! You receive a PDF sewing pattern immediately plus the large scale A0 sheet version of the pattern is printed out by us and posted to you next working day. Alternatively you can upload a PDF pattern you have purchased elsewhere and we will print it for you.

We also love chatting about sewing, sign up to our newsletter and follow us on social media for all the latest sewing pattern releases plus join our friendly Facebook group to get advice. If that’s not enough to get your creative juices flowing, we also have lots of sewing resources to explore. Be inspired to create a wardrobe you love!

The Fold Line FREE Quilt Block

Quilting is a great opportunity to use up your left over fabric scraps to make something special to treasure or give to a friend. Quilting projects do take quite a bit of time but they are a project you can continue to work on, creating smaller blocks before joining them all together to create the finished the quilt.
