Item details

Isabella Beeton was the 19th century English lady who achieved world renown with her classic volume on cookery and housekeeping. Mrs. Beeton's Book of Household Management. She also turned her immense talents to needlework, and this comprehensive book was the result.

Now modern readers can benefit from her expertise in knitting, crochet, embroidery, tatting, netting, and lace work. For this charming book is more than a nostalgic memento of bygone times, it is a practical guide which can still be used today. After all, the art of needlework has changed little in its essentials since Isabella Beeton's lifetime. Modern needlewomen may no longer use crochet hooks of polished wood or bone, as Isabella Beeton did, but they can still follow her clear, illustrated instructions in the basic techniques of the craft, and enjoy recreating her patterns.

This attractive facsimile edition will give a taste of the elegant Victorian era - heyday of creative needlework - in which Isabella Beeton wrote, and will delight anyone with an interest in the crafts of the needle.
