Mary Maxim Vintage

To say that Mary Maxim Designs are iconic is an understatement. Vintage Mary Maxim Designs have literally crafted and documented life in North America for over a half of a century. Mary Maxim Garments hold the nostalgia of our past in the stitches of sweaters across the continent and we look forward to what the future brings.  When Alison Calder wrote about her project “Maxims and Contraries” in the book Material Cultures in Canada.  Calder frequently commented on how her audiences participated in her study of the history of our designs.  When discussing her project with others, people began to offer stories and memories of specific sweaters and what they meant to them.  For some, it was a sweater made by a loved one, but for others it was a sweater or garment knitted to commemorate an event, like a graduation or wedding.

Today for Throwback Thursday our Downloads include 2 classic sweaters.  There are a few yarn lines of ours that have stood the test of time and are still available from Mary Maxim today.  There are over 25 yarn lines in the Mary Maxim brand, here are some of our favorites.
