And, just to round off a trio of lovely books is this book from Old Stourbridge Village, Massachusetts.
This 76 page softback is dedicated to teachin you the elements of 17th and 18th century crewel needlework as practised by the ladies of New England
This book also is softback and the condition is a little less than perfect but still very good.
