All Kinds of Fascinating Stitchery Described in Detail!
Sold. I'm out looking for more but in the meantime head to the shop for more lovely things at www.handmadeandvintage.co.uk
Fabulous vintage needlework book dating from the 1930's. This is book one of The Book of Good Needlework and it declares itself to be full with ideas for making, "duchess sets, tea cloths, cushion covers, bags and table mats". It also has a "useful dictionary of embroidery stitches".
This is a great hardback book filled with illustratrions on every page and packed with ideas and projects for home wares and decorative accessories. Have a look at the index to see the contents.
Make the projects as they are or use this as a source book for ideas and update the patterns and projects for your own designs. There is also a dictionary of decorative stitches - Heaven! This is a perfect gift for a crafty friend - but only if you can bear to give it away!
The book is in very good condition with just a few scuffs to the corners and some foxing and a couple of marks to the back cover. It measures 28cm x 22cm.
Have a look in the shop for Volume Two, as well as a fabulous Vogue sewing book.
