Item details

Ellen McCarn on ENGLISH SMOCKING - Instructions, Ideas, Smocking Patterns Book - Published in 1986 - Very Good Condition.

Offered here is a softcover book, "Ellen McCarn on English Smocking," copyright 1986.

This very excellent book gives very detailed instructions for smocking. It has many detailed drawings, photographs, and illustrations to show how to smock by hand.

This is an instruction book ONLY. It includes NO supplies (such as fabric, thread, tissue pattern pieces, etc.). It is not a pattern itself. This book will be an aid in sewing smocked garments or decorative items.

This is an original softcover book. It is not a photocopy or electronic or digital copy of a book. This book contains 32 pages.

There is a handwritten inscription of names on the inside of the front cover. The top right corner of the cover has sustained a fold at some time, but is not broken and is strong. There is one very small discoloration spot on the inside back cover which is not bad. There is minimal shelf wear to the cover edges. Someone has circled an instruction on page 6 and penciled in some light notes on page 13. One page has been folded in the past, but is unfolded now and intact. All in all, this book is in very condition, considering its age and apparent past use.

Except as noted, this book is in a very clean condition with minimal wear. No smoke or other odors.

The item in the photographs is the exact same item you will receive.

Please note that this book is vintage and pre-owned, and it has been used by someone else previously. Therefore, there is some wear or markings on the book from its previous use. I have tried my best to describe as accurately as I can the condition of the book and to show any major issues in the listing's photographs. Please pay close attention to the photographs as they should be considered as part of the description for this item. If you have any questions, please contact me prior to your purchase.

Sales tax will be added to orders shipping to residents of the State of North Carolina.

No international shipping is offered. Purchases from this shop only ship to addresses located in the United States of America.

THANK YOU for shopping with Two Willow Place!

FAQs

This is a difficult question. While I sincerely wish I could hold items in the shop for your purchase at a future time, I feel it is unfair to others who are also considering purchasing the same item. It may be that you change your mind or just never come back to make the purchase, thereby effectively inactivating the listing for others. Therefore, it is a TwoWillowPlace shop policy that items will NOT be "reserved" or held pending a future purchase without the Buyer having made previous arrangements with the shop for a custom order to have the item obtained for that Buyer only, AND without the Buyer having made a deposit on the item which would represent a partial payment. I believe this is fair to all concerned, including the shop.

The answer is "Yes, but sometimes not." If you purchase multiple items ON THE SAME DAY that can be safely shipped together IN THE SAME PACKAGE, I am happy to combine the shipping charges and refund any excess you have paid if over $1.00. Please send a message to alert me that you are purchasing multiple items. IF, HOWEVER, the items are glassware or other items that I feel would be best to ship separately for their protection, then I will ship them separately and not make any refund of shipping charges. My primary interest is to prevent any items from being broken in transit. I do not make a profit from shipping charges. I usually ship on the same day or the day after, so speed is important in your shopping and contacting me. Thanks!
