By Peasant TOP 500 REVIEWER on 17 Feb. 2013
Format: Hardcover
This book is quite widely available and appears similar at first glance to News Chronicle Needlework and Crafts: Evert Woman's Book of the Arts of Plain Sewing, Embroidery, Dressmaking, and Home Crafts (Illustrated With Plates), even having the same grey cloth cover. However it is a far better, and more useful, book.

Every aspect of needlework is covered, from different kinds of embroidery to making a pair of leather gloves. Clear diagrams demonstrate techniques, and really charming photographs - some coloured - illustrate delightful examples including some cracking Art Deco bits and pieces. These are the dead give away that this book is older than it looks - not Fifties, but Twenties or early Thirties.

Everything is here from basic skills to vintage projects. The drawings of how to do various embroidery stitches are a model of clarity. The numerous black and white photographs make one itch to have a go. The knitting sections are by Helen Paton, no doubt a scion of the Paton's knitting supplies firm. We may not now want "baby's knitted rompers" but many of the other items are very desirable. If you're feeling adventurous there is a section on weaving. In fact, to help prospective buyers, I'll list the chapter headings as briefly as possible.
