By: Dede Ogden

Price: $30.00

Publisher: Unknown, Privately Printed: 2005

Edition: Presumed First

Seller ID: 23643

Condition: Fione


This instruction manual caught my eye because I never heard of shadow stitching. From what I gather it is a technique which provides shadowing using stitches already known and the use of thinner thread and room for part of the mesh to show. If you google it you will see beautiful examples. This book is not written in and shows no other defects. It's bound with a plastic spiral and is in excellent condition. The book measures 6" x 8-1/2" and is 1/2" thick. the... View more info

Easy Steps in Sewing or Adventures Among the Thimble People / The Wonder Book of Knowledge (Combined Salesman's Dummy Books)

Price: $75.00

Publisher: Chicago, Philadelphia, Toronto, The John C. Winston Company: 1928

Edition: Salesman's Sample

Seller ID: 26084

Condition: Very Good


This is a double saleman's sample book in very good, clean condition. The pairing of titles is a bit odd, but here you have it -- half the book shows the Mary Frances sewing book, but when you flip it upside-down the back cover is the front cover for The Book of Knowledge. (see photos). To my mind the main book is the sewing book -- a charming title which even here in abbreviated form includes a sample pattern for little girls to learn to make doll cllothes. The art is... View more info
