Our new book, hot off the press.

Just received our latest book.

Back cover.

One of the cuter embroideries in the book adapted from an illustration from the 1940's.


The book features quick and easy things to stitch with designs gathered from our collection of vintage linens and books from the 40's, 50's, and 60's. There are over 150 designs which all can be done with just 5 easy stitches. Perfect for beginners. And to make it really easy the designs can all be ironed on with the included iron-on transfers. It's published by Leisure Arts and can be bought at Michaels, Joanns, etc. or through Leisure Arts website.

OHHHHHHHH,
I love these! I always used to love rummaging through my grandmothers old needle books!
Thanks for sharing!

Hi Cyndilou,
I went to your blogs and left a few comments. I started out as a paste-up artist,also. I'll bet no one knows what that is anymore. I'll bet you can't even buy rubber cement anymore either.

Wow, another paste-up girl! And you are LArts! I did paste up for "Yours Truly" that quilting company, way back in the 80's! Small world! I worked on quite a few book by them. So, you liked the supermarket crafts idea? Maybe we should get together on that! I guess I should post some more things.
Have a great day!
