Product Information

"Decorating clothes and household linens by means of stitches has long been a cherished art. Nations have become noted for their fine needlework and individuals have been made happy and have acquired life-long occupations through this art. To make beautiful stitches requires an interest in the work sufficient to insure neatness and accuracy, as well as great enough to inspire much practice in the use of the needle and the placing of the thread. The more practice you have in embroidery work, the more definite the perfection and the more valued the result."

Originally published in 1916 by the Woman's Institute of Domestic Arts & Sciences, this book comes to make you master of the technique of embroidery and decorative stitches.
