This 1954, 144 page book, is chock-full of all kinds of useful needlecraft information. It is divided into four sections ~ knitting, crocheting, embroidery and tatting ~ with illustrated instructions and plenty of projects for each discipline. For its age, the book is in really good condition, no tears and the spine is still intact. There is some writing on the cover and the pages have started to yellow a bit. This book will make a great addition to your pattern library.
