Location for the AI Pattern swatch files for Illustrator

swatches location

This varies from version to version but generally you can find the location for the swatches in the sub folder of the presets folder found in a sub folder of en_GB, en_US etc which can be found in the applications folder / program files depending on pc or mac. Example on the right shows the location for the mac andCC 2018 2017 but the location has varied a little over the years. I assume that Illustrator CC 2018 presets folder will be in the CC 2018 section, Illustrator CC 2019 presets folder will be in much the same location as well
