COMPLETE NEEDLEWORK: Everything about Embroidery, Home Dressmaking, Knitting and Crochet and Home Upholstery etc
by Agnes Miall

Published by C. Arthur Pearson Ltd, London, UK
Undated but dating from the 1930s (although the photos could be a little earlier)
Probably a First Edition which would date it to circa 1933

Hardback book with cream buckram covers - 320 pages - printed on good quality matt paper - includes several black and white photographs
Dimensions: approx. 5" x 8" x 2" (approx. 13cm x 20cm x 5cm)

Includes chapters on: Home Embroidery, Home Dressmaking, Mending, Patchwork, Knitting and Crochet, Home Upholstery and Household Linen, Gift-Making and Miscellaneous

Lots of practical guidance and inspiration! The emphasis is on techniques, instructions, stitches etc - rather than specific projects

If you would like further information on the contents of this book before purchasing please feel free to ask

Cotton reels and scissors not included - for display only

This book is in good condition. Foxing stains to spine (please see photo), corners a little bumped, with a few small marks here and there. Foxing to edges of internal pages and to endpapers. Otherwise very good. Bidning is tight. No stains (other than aforementioned foxing), tears or annotations (except for price in pencil inside front cover). Appears to have been little used

Apologies for the high shipping costs - this is a fairly heavy book. I have estimated the shipping charges. If I find that I have grossly over-estimated the shipping charges (after allowing a small amount for packaging) I will, of course, refund the difference. I do offer a discount for combined shipping, though this is difficult to estimate precisely at time of listing

Any questions, please feel free to ask
