Master Guide: Vogart and American Thread Co. transfers

The chart below details the Vogart (or American Thread Company) needlework patterns that were produced in the 1940s and 1950s and sold in the famous "black banner" package. Each entry includes the transfer number; full descriptive text from the envelope front, plus notes on re-issues or companion patterns; the type of embroidery; and a theme using an abbreviated system to sort out the animal days-of-the-week from the floral pillowcase transfers.

More information, including search tips (with abbreviations and terms), printing instructions and our links to related pages is here, too. But we know you're anxious to see the chart so we've put everything else at the bottom of the page. Just one note: reissued transfers use the same graphics as the original.

This is reference only. See the main transfer page to find items to buy starting May 25th.

VOGART transfers   700 series

To the best of our knowledge, the last half of the 600 series and the entire 700 series of hot iron transfers are all reissues of previously published designs, and the 700 series are multi-stamp transfers in Vogart's "new" packaging. Where known, the 700 series number is given in the reissue notes.

Search tips, abbreviations and conventions

This page is set up for browsing and quick reference -- so in addition to giving the Vogart transfer titles, we've also included our own designations. That makes it easy to use your brower's search/find feature to do a quick search on this page.

Transfer type is usually embroidery, but some transfers are for crochet, sewing or another form of needlework -- or for specialty embroidery such as cutwork or applique. A few, which we designated no-stitch, are full-color transfers (forerunners to the Textilprints line). Cross stitch transfers are listed as x-stitch as a reminder that they are not counted cross stitch designs. The term mixed means that two or more needlework techniques are used.

Transfer themes are categorized by what's shown in the graphics:

  • nursery for transfers decorating a nursery or toddler's room -- sheets, pillowcases, quilts, pictures -- and also dolls, doll clothing and toys;
  • kitchen for transfers depicting tea towels, Days of the Week sets, placemats, napkins, small tablecloths, cafe curtains, aprons, pot holders, appliance covers, and such;
  • pillowcases -- no surprise here -- but Vogart wasn't consistent about the term or the spelling in its titles;
  • linens for those showing other types of household linens -- dresser or vanity scarves, guest towels, full-size table cloths, chair sets, and such;
  • layette for transfers shown ornamenting baby or toddler clothing;
  • clothing for transfers shown ornamenting adult clothing; and
  • all-purpose for the few with a variety of motifs from all or most of the other categories.

Transfer motifs are categorized in very general terms and labeled as follows:

  • floral (all types)
  • belles (all types) -- people (all other)
  • cats -- dogs -- bears -- butterflies -- animals (all other)
  • fruits -- veggies -- food (all other)
  • DOW (days of the week)
  • SOTB (south of the border)
  • monograms -- motto -- guest -- animated -- toys -- borders -- misc.

  Printing tips    

The guide is set up in a fixed width that will print on standard letter-size paper. Use your browser's print feature -- setting the margins to .25 inches so the edges don't get cut off. The guide is about 18 pages long.

Don't forget to check the online guide from time to time, as it will be updated as "missing" transfers are located....

So if you want to find all the Vogart transfers with kittens, put the word "cats" in your browser search box. That will take to you to each transfer featuring cats, one by one -- no matter how or whether they're mentioned in the Vogart title. To search for a more specific term (Siamese) or for more than one term (cats and pillowcases), you're better off using the Sewing Palette's site search box at the top of the page.

Can't get enough Vogart?

For those of you who are just crazy about Vogart, here are a few places to find more information:

Check the detail pages here at the Sewing Palette for more information about a specific transfer -- including a larger photo (when available) and a list of what's actually on the sheet. If the transfer number is a clickable link, there's a detail page.

Other related pages here include our Vogart Facts and Trivia page, which summarizes what we've learned about the company and changes in packaging and transfer ink over the years. You may also enjoy reading our Vintage Transfer Overview.

There are several on-line blogs that include lots of entries on Vogart transfers: Vintage Transfer Finds (one woman's quest to own too many embroidery transfers) by Floresita; Kitty & Me Designs where you can find great shots of Vogart designs stitched by Pam Kellogg; and Needles Excellency by Laren, who has also started a Vogart PBwiki.

Sources and errata: Most of the information on this page was taken from our collection of Vogart transfers. The gaps were filled in by research on the web. We've been diligent about cross-checking on transfers we currently do not own, but typos happen and we definitely want to know about any errors you spot!
