American Needlework Book of Patterns and Instructions
1963 Simon and Schuster New York First Edition
Name Brand By the Editors of Women's Day
11 1/2 x 8 x 2 1/2" deep pull out boxed patterns
I checked through each one and they are all complete, I saw only one that may have been used., hard to tell but it was not folded back to original, which I corrected. the rest are folded and in great shape.
Each heavy paper pamplet folds out to a 33 x 22 1/2" sheet.. they are either one sides directions, some have directions on both sides,
There are 3 stabled booklets, and 19 fold outs where some may contain up to 4 sections on one sheet.
Again this is a complete set.
There is a 31 page front book of contents, stitch tutorial, General directions.
This contains everything from Embroidery, Cross stitch, Quilting, Hawaiian Quilting Hooking, weaving and candle making. Please see the 2nd and 3rd photo for contents.
Origin, this belonged to my Mother who was a quilt teacher, I do not know where she originally obtained it., she was not doing quilting till late 70s so I think she acquired it elsewhere.
Condition: Cover box is a bit beat up and discolored., the inside contents of instructions are in great shape. , just maybe some paper ageing but not brittle or anything near that., no tears in the creasing that I could find and I opened every single one.
There are some great patterns in this set esp if you are a quilter., I can see the application for transferring for long arm quilting and I almost kept this just for that. , but I already have more than I will ever use.
Please view all photos.
