5.0 out of 5 stars a delight!, 26 Feb 2012
After reading much press about the Colette Sewing Handbook, both reviews here at Amazon and lots of sewers blogs, I knew it would be a useful addition as well as providing some lovely patterns (which when you think of the price of patterns, makes the book a steal!). I have not been dissapointed. I have used the fantastic section on how to make bias binding which was so clear and well explained even my daughter could follow it:) I've yet to make up a pattern as I am working through some UFO's at the moment, but I know that the Truffle dress will be gorgeous on daughters, looking forward to trying the skirt, the blouse etc...well recommended.
A Stitch in Time: Vintage Knitting Patterns, 1930-&hellip by Susan Crawford
5.0 out of 5 stars exceeded expectations, 27 Jan 2012
I'd seen this book at the Harrogate knitting and stitching show back in November, but budget demanded I had to wait, so after receiving some money for Xmas this was my treat, and what a treat it was!!! I love this book...from the presentation, clear explanations, photography its pure delight. I have a list of 8 favourite patterns, only difficulty is choosing which to start with! I would highly recommend this book to any lover of vintage patterns, its a treasury to be treasured!
