This website is very much a team effort. I am grateful to the Pasold Research Fund for facilitating travel in my search for the patterns. Particular thanks is owed to Alison Harvey, Archivist at Cardiff University Special Collections and Archives for providing images and permission to reproduce patterns held in its splendid collection of the Lady's Magazine. 

Putting together the metadata sampled on this website was a collaborative effort between a number of brilliantly inquisitive and hardworking undergraduate students in the School of English at the University of Kent. My thanks go to: Ellen Dean, Molly Howe, Cassia Hayward-Fitch, Alex McRobbie, Georgina Rehaag and Dhriti Shashikanth. In 2022, Charlotte Goodge, a graduate researcher at the University of Kent joined the project to upload a further 100 patterns, which are due to launch here in December 2022. My final thanks go to my daughter, Leah Motton, who took on the work of inputting extensive data for this website and proofreading.
