|This book on embroidery is beautifully illustrated and shows complex and beautiful stitches as well as the basics.|
Two were put out by the Singer Manufacturing Co. and are volumes 1 and 2 of the Singer Sewing Library. Book 101 is How to Make Curtains and Book 102 is How to Make Draperies at a price of $.25, yes, that was 25 cents each! The copyright date is 1960. I have made lots of curtains and drapes so I chuckled and thought of dear old Miss Ruth Sproat, my Home Economics teacher and 4-H leader for many years. I wonder if she is still living?
|The fact the pages are yellowed with age makes it all the more fun for me!|
|I think it is a marvelous coincidence to have found these at a time that I can really appreciate them.|
