Item details

The Complete Encyclopedia of Stitchery by Mildred Graves Ryan published in 1979 covers Bargello, Crewel, Crocheting, Embroidering, Knitting, Macrame, Needlepoint, Rug-making, Sewing and Tatting. The author, Mildred Graves Ryan (former Vice-President in charge of Product Development for the McCall Pattern Company) explains basic stitches and variations, special terms, and abbreviations and describes materials and tools, in a way which is clear and easy to follow and understand. This book is excellent for beginners as well as all skill levels. This 689 page hardcover book is in good vintage condition considering its age. The dust-cover is a bit frayed and worn at the edges and the book pages have yellowed slightly (See detail photos).

Book is 8.5 in. x 5.5 in. and 2 in. thick.

This is an amazingly detailed book and would fit well in the collection of any textile and needle-crafter.

While we strive to portray the colors of our items as accurately as possible, things like lighting, background and photo exposure do cause the appearance to vary.


FAQs

Our shipping method of choice is United States Postal Service. When it is economically feasible we will send your package Priority Mail, but some items may be sent First Class or Parcel Post. I hope to offer shipping upgrades in the near future. Like some of our products, a certain amount of our packaging will always be from recycled or re-purposed materials. This is from the standpoint of just good Green Sense, as well as an economic decision. Our main goal is to not only attractively present our items, but to get them to you in great shape.

Some of the dolls and stuffies made by Gaia Robinette are primarily intended for adults and collectors over 12 years old. They are not suitable for small children as they will not stand up to vigorous play and rough handling. Individual listings will provide more specific information as to intended users of these items We do not recommend laundering of any of these handcrafted dolls or plush toys. Spot cleaning or gentle wiping with a damp cloth should be sufficient.
