Thank you for your interest in our Antique RepublicationTM Products!


I love that which is old & related to needlework & arts/crafts. Especially books, as I feel you can learn virtually anything in life providing you have the interest, drive & a GREAT book to study!


Can anyone say bibliomania? lol


My personal philosophy is that books just don't fail you on any level...

An excerpt:

''This is a concise and practical guide to the increasingly popular subject of home millinery ...It will appeal to any woman with a flair for making things as well as to Women's Institutes and those evening institutes and institutes of further education where the subject is taught. The illustrations show clearly every stage of operation as well as different shapes and styles.

A Hat is an important part of the well-dressed woman's attire and often increases the attractiveness of her appearance considerably. Sometimes you may have said to yourself ''I wish I could find a hat like that,'' or, perhaps, ''I wish I could make a hat like that for myself.'' Well, with a certain amount of patience and determination, you can learn to make just the kind of hats you want. 

This book has been written to help any woman with a flair for making things to embark on the creation of her own hats. It will provide here with an interesting hobby, and in addition she will be able to have three hats for the price of one.''
