Vintage 1920s 1930s Embroidery Book - floral designs

Leach's New Wool Embroidery
Published in the UK, in all probability during the 1920s or early 1930s
Softback booklet - 12 pages - cover in colour, remainder in black and white - printed on cheaper newsprint-type paper
Dimensions approx. 7.75" x 11" (19.5cm x 28cm)
The free transfer that is mentioned on the cover has NOT survived sadly

PLEASE NOTE: this booklet does not contain any actual transfers or embroidery charts. It was intended as a showcase catalogue for Leach's embroidery transfers and pre-printed linens, which had to be purchased separately. However, it provides detailed instructions on how to complete each project and the experienced embroiderer should be able to replicate many of the designs relatively easily. At the very least, it can serve as inspiration for your own vintage projects!

In good condition though there is a soft vertical fold. A few creased corners and general age discolouration to pages. Small stain to cover near spine and a very small tear at the top (please see photo). Staples have started to rust and there is some rust transference to pages. No other major flaws. No annotations

Any questions - please feel free to ask

Will be well packaged in a hard-backed envelope to protect it in transit

Please note that I offer a combined shipping discount - please see 'Shop Policies' for details
