Vintage Sewing Book - March Betsy Betts April 4, 2016 Every Sunday I try to post a photograph from my collection of old sewing books onto my Instagram feed. Here is a roundup of the ones I shared in March... From Introduction to Basic Needlecraft, by Winefride M. Bull, first published 1954 Advert from The Home Book of Fancy Stitchery. Date unknown, maybe 1900s? This one was shared on Easter Sunday. From a Needlework Development Scheme booklet, no date.
