Up for bid is another Dakota Prairie Treasures CD Republication of our original ''Priscilla Cross-Stitch Book!'' This item has approximately 200 steel plate beading or cross stitch pattern etchings in its 50 pages! It includes instructions for using these graphed designs in a wide variety of needle working techniques. From cross stitch to beading, to crochet, to knitting, to embroidery and more! I hardly know where to begin...
This is certainly a huge source of historically valuable inspiration for the creative thread and bead art souls out there. The instructions for these items were created by experienced Victorian traditional needle and fiber artists from 1899 and earlier! (Original is NOT for sale)

More than 217 pattern examples! And this is not counting all the individual letters in the six alphabets included nor the individual items included in the panoramic or complex examples
''There is scarcely a pattern in this book that may not be applied to a dozen different uses or materials, or worked in many different stitches. And here lies one great charm of cross-stitch embroidery, the latitude enjoyed by the worker.''
Here is an OLD, resourceful and exceptional embroidery, crochet, knitting, netting, cross-stitch, petit point, Guipure D'Art, rug work, straw work, appliqu? and beading instructional and design book on CD-ROM.
