I cannot resist old books on sewing.
And this weekend I hit a motherlode.
|Purchased at Friends of the Newport Beach library|
My newest skill I am trying to master is ribbon flowers!
Published 1999 and beautiful, well diagrammed steps
|Found on an upstairs, back shelf at Piecemakers|
This author, Claire B. Shaeffer, is my favorite sewing guru and I don't even have to look inside to know the information is outstanding.
|Again, upstairs back shelf at Piecemakers|
If the book is by Vogue the quality of the information is usually fantastic.
This 510 page tome was published in 1980

I am so excited about this Vogue book!
Fitting skills are invaluable and every book has different techniques.
|Again, found at Piecemakers,|
This book is very simplistic and I almost didn't buy it but, then I looked at the publishing information and had to have it just for the historic reference.
I confess I have many, many, many, many books on a very narrow range of topics.
Every time I am contemplating or beginning a new undertaking I will pull all my relevant books and look up techniques and design ideas.
My books are my best friends.
