I have a few vintage patterns that I was just wondering how to store. I love the comic bag and board idea. I will add to this information that the bags and boards are available in quite a few sizes because over the years there have been oversize comics (think magazine size) as well as the size we think of as modern comics.

Another note to those of us with no filing cabinet. They also make archival boxes that the bags and boards are designed to fit specifically and are manageable sizes and prices.

Oh this is great. If I may ask, what digitizer table and CAD system do you use?

I wonder if one can loan an old pattern to the organization to use for scanning, copying and making available to others, but the original pattern returns to the owner? That makes the patterns available to a wider audience, which seems to be the original intent, but the individual gets to keep that which might still have sentimental or useful value.

@icansew -I had the same thought, I have a few 1920s patterns that I would like to share but wouldn't want to part with permanently.:\
