I've been combing eBay and used book stores for vintage books on embroidery... we are not inspired by Grandma just in name here, by golly. This Better Homes and Garden's Embroidery book was published in 1978... not so old... I'm looking for older. I highly recommend these old books. Just don't mess with out-bidding me on eBay for 'em.
Here's the start of a new regular feature... just a few of my vintage embroidery finds. I know there's more buried treasure in my house somewhere. What have you found? Post it in the We Love French Knots flickr group with the word vintage in the description.
