How many of you have ordered from Clotilde catalog?  When my children were young, Clotilde was my place for all things snappy, buttons, zippers, tracing wheels, all the stuff I used for sewing their play clothes.  It was a well used catalog.  The woman behind Clotilde was Clotilde Robison Lampe.  In the 50's, she discovered items that made sewing easier and since she was a lecturer, she started to promote them.  Her Clotilde company introduced us to many many new products and I think her glass head pins are still the best!
She died on November 28, 2011.  I really didn't know there was a "real" Clotilde behind the name of the company until just recently.  Clotilde continues to offer new quilting devices and patterns to us in addition to all the sewing items.  I still love to browse through her catalog and think about all the stuff I could be sewing.  Diana
