Originally published in 1918, this is a splendid book to encourage little girls in the study of the useful and beautiful art of the needle.

Too often we hear grown-up girls and women say that they do not like to sew or that they don't know the first thing about sewing. What they really mean is that they do not like to sew because they don't know the first thing about it. We always like the things we know how to do and do well.

The neglected art of the needle is coming again into its own and the time to inculcate its principles is in childhood, when the mind is plastic and the fingers flexible. Any little girl may develop into a finished needlewoman if she undertakes the study of sewing with a competent teacher who can combine practical instruction with the play spirit, and make the lesson as interesting as a game.

To inspire little girls with the desire to learn sewing, and to help their elders teach them, this story of Annalu was written.
