EST. February 2008
Located in Los Angeles, CA

Vintage Encore specializes in one of a kind designs from recycled vintage linens.

Kathleen - Owner, Maker, Curator 
Dress Clothes Pin Bag/ Vintage Day of the Week / Wash on Monday Clothespin BagI have been sewing all my life, and come from 3 generations of seamstresses. I love all things vintage and have been going to flea markets and estate sales for many years. Sewing and "hunting " are THE most fun!

Combining sewing and vintage
I chose the name "Vintage Encore" because my mission is to re purpose the vintage linens, that I have collected over the years, in a new and serviceable way.
I combine them with new fabrics, in my own patterns, to make totes, aprons, clothes pin bags, etc.
Etsy provides another outlet for my one of a kind items, in addition to participation in my local craft shows. It's all good!


  1. Wow ~ three generations of seamstresses! It is wonderful how you combine vintage with new fabrics to create amazing new things! ✿
