A week or so ago we went on an expedition and ended up at a couple of our favourite thrift stores and I was quite happy to add to my embroidery book collection with these two...
The below book was the real find (at least in my mind anyway). It's huge (512 pages to be exact) and was copyrighted in 1979. It's full of wonderful reading material and lots of things to drool over! It covers knitting, crochet, knotted and wovenwork (including netting, tatting and weaving); embroidery, needlepoint, quilting and basic sewing.
You lucky duck! What a great find! Enjoy.ReplyDelete

ohhh yes, great finds :) I haven't been to the thrift shops or antique shops in so long, must get out there soon. Enjoy !ReplyDelete
some of the "old" books are better---basic, clear and no foufou crap about cutesy or "subversive" stuff!!! good scores!ReplyDelete
Very nice additions to your collection! PamReplyDelete
for some reason my thrifts hardly ever have needlework books or yarn...lots of other good stuff but never that.ReplyDelete
I picked up the Anchor book when I was at the V&A in London UK. then went on a mission for the others in the series. Found 4 altogether. We won't discuss difference in cost...not exactly thrift finds unfortunately.ReplyDelete
