Description

Threadbared, Decades of Don'ts from the Sewing and Crafting World by Kimberly Wrenn and Mary Watkins. This is a hilarious look at styles that were popular in years past. The authors say, "Can't knit? Hate sewing? Don't want to crochet? Here's the craft book for you!"

Vintage photographs from instruction booklets and patterns may bring a smile to your face, but the sassy, snarky commentary provided by the authors will have you in stitches. Threadbared leads crafters, wannabes, and don't-wannabees alike to ponder the age-old question: Did anyone really think this stuff looked good?

This is a great book for a long-time knitter or crafter, because she will probably remember making some of these things herself and agree, "How could I have done that?"

Condition, excellent, looks like it just came from the bookstore. Would make an excellent gift. No markings of any kind.
Softcover book, measures 8.25" by 7.5"

If you have any questions about book or its content please contact me.

I ship internationally, and if I should overcharge by more than $1.00 I will refund the excess. In the US, this can be shipped media mail unless you want to upgrade the shipping.

Thank you for looking, and please visit my shop where I have many original design knit items. To go back to my shop, please click on http://www.etsy.com/shop/LoveNYarn
