Popular craft patterns from Leewards can still be found, if you know where to look. This is a guide about Leewards Craft Patterns.
Does anyone know who Leewards suppliers were and if any of them are still in business?
Try Michael's if you're in the US - they bought Leewards in 1994.
Michaels doesn't have any answers.
I too am looking for the Leewards Advent Calendar from the 1970s that is a Christmas tree made from felt on a white background with felt/sequin ornaments that hang on it - there's a candy cane, house with snow, panda bear, clown, rabbit, etc. It was the advent calendar I used as a child - would love to find a duplicate or the kit to remake if anyone has it. It would mean soooooo much to me! Thanks! Erin in NH.
I made one in the 70's and fortunately still have it. This year I traced the ornaments to make patterns and with the help of my daughter have made three calendars for my grandchildren. If you could find a picture of the old calendar I'm sure you could duplicate it. How I miss Lee wards!
Hi - if this is what you're looking for, I'm also interested in the patterns for the ornaments, (the puppy ate the camel and santa claus). I'd be more than willing to share dimensions, etc. 19Dec2008
I am also looking for this pattern, and I would really, really appreciate any patterns, photos, or other information that anyone could share. I would like to create a pattern/tutorial to post and share with others that would like to make this heirloom for their families. It is SO hard to find. My email address is shannon.naan AT yahoo.com
I actually made this calendar in the early 70's, still have it. Although I made a new tree a few years ago, the ornaments are still original. My always-saving-things mother tucked the instructions and patterns away, still have them too. I am willing to scan and send them to anyone who is interested. Email firstname.lastname@example.org
I too made this calendar when my 45 year old daughter was a baby. I gave it to her and she has placed it on the wall for my grandson for many years. There fairly young dog has found a way to get at the ornaments and has chewed up two of hem. Yes I would love just the ornament pattern to replace the chewed ones. email@example.com
My mother started this afghan over 30 years ago. She has lost the directions. Does anyone have any idea where we could find this?

This is a couple of yeas after the fist post of this question but I have the directions to this afghan kit. My grandmother had the kit but never started it so I have a complete kit. If you still need the directions let me know and I can copy them for you.
Does anyone know the manufacturer or distributor Leewards used to get their ornament kits?
Try Michaels - they bought Leewards in 1994.
I am looking for an old Christmas Stocking pattern that I believe was put out by Leewards. My mom made them for us when we were little and has since made some for my husband and kids. Now that I have another baby in the house, she's lost the pattern!
It's double crocheted and the lettering and snowflakes are cross stitched on. She remembers that you could also cross stitch a Christmas tree on the front instead of the snowflake pattern. If anyone knows where I can find this pattern, I'd appreciate it! Thank you!!

I need this pattern, too! My grandmother made them for my entire family when I was little, and now I want to make one for my husband. I didn't realize that the original pattern had snowflakes, since she left them off of our's. So cute!
I would love to have this pattern if anyone finds it.
I need this stocking pattern. We have a new daughter-in-law in our family and I want to make her a matching stocking. My mother in law made ours when we were dating back in the late 70's.
I was wondering if anyone has the Lee Ward's reversible shell crochet afghan pattern. I would so appreciate having it. I made it about twenty-five years ago for someone and would love to make it for my daughter. She has had five miscarriages and has been blessed with a very special little girl who is due in July. I would just love to make it for her. Thank you so much.

I must be running a lucky streak on search engines. I logged onto Google, copied and pasted your request on their search engine. And then found the website with the crocheting pattern you were looking for. Would you believe it that a thriftyfun member posted the website.
I hope this is the right pattern you were looking for. There's no photo posted but gives all of the instructions. Give my love to your daughter! Happy Crocheting!
I have the reversable shell stitch afghan pattern #06-3662
