It’s Bizarre To Think That Rhode Island Is Home To The World’s Largest Collection Of Sewing Patterns, But It’s True

Rhode Island’s known for a laundry list of things – from the obvious, like being the smallest state in the U.S. to the more obscure (at least if you don’t live here), such as the Big Blue Bug. We’ve got amazing attractions – the Fantastic Umbrella Factory and Gun Totem, for example  – that you just won’t find anywhere else. Rhode Island is also home to the world’s largest collection of sewing patterns.

Please note: Photos are not from the university’s collection.
