I think this is a 1947 edition, 303 pages. It smells a bit musty and the pages are yellowed. Inside cover has a name written in ink. Binding in great condition, no rips or tears. Would make a great gift for any stitcher.
Chapters include types of embroidery: Applique, Assisi,
Blackwork, Broderie, Canvas, Cords, Fringes, Tassels, Couching, Laid and Gold Work, Cross Stitch, Cut Work, Daning, Double Running, Drawn Thread, Filet, Florentine Hardanger, Hedebo, Initials and Monograms, Jacobean, Mountmellick, Needleweaving, Net, Patchwork, Quilting, Samplers, Seams, Hems and Faggotting, Shadow Work, Smocking, Stump Work, Tapestry...Wow!
