    Oh my, those are wonderful--the pink strawberries one has an identical silhouette to the one in the ad!

    I had a lovely Catalina jacquard, but it was a couple of decades later...

    Truly wonderful, I don't think I've ever seen such lovely sweaters from this era. I love the man's sweater in that ad with the deer!

    I have never seen one of these earlier sweaters, but they look fabulous.

    My parents always had gobs of mothballs in cheese cloth dangling from hangers and also in their drawers. This is from a 1943 advertisement for Catalina.

    If you read Lizzie's wonderful blog, I assume you saw this piece about Jantzen?

    To answer your question about the repairs, yes, it can be done. They match the yarn and reconstruct the structure of the knit. It's called Swiss Darning.

    You collection is simply incredible!

    A lot of dry cleaners will have someone who can do it. Call around and ask to see examples of their work. I'm not familiar with the Chicago company. If you are handy with a needle, maybe you ought to try it yourself, or find someone who can teach you. There are all kinds of tutorials on the internet.
