Specification

"There must be many ladies to whom such a book as this -- lucid, compact, and inexpensive -- will be most welcome, enabling them to use their needles for the highest of purposes -- the service of the Church and the beautifying of the Sanctuary."

Originally published in 1907, this book (founded on a series of articles on Church Embroidery written for the 'Treasury') is intended for the use of those who are desirous of learning by practical experiment how to make the best use of such time and skill as they have at their command; and who, while they are unable to go through the long courses of instruction which are generally indispensable to the attainment of perfection, are yet anxious to devote their 'labour of love' to the service of the Church.
