Up for bid is another marvelous Dakota Prairie Treasures Unabridged Spiral Bound Book Republication™ of the original Flapper Era, ''Pitman Practical Glove Making!''  Originally produced by Isabel M. Edwards and published by Pitman & Sons in 1929! These folks provided some of the best instructions books in their day for the leather arts! The experienced leather craft and glover artesians of the early 1900's clamored for this type of item and with good reason! (Original is NOT for sale)

Our new line of Spiral Bound Book Republications™ oh-so-conveniently lie flat while in use!

This is a unbelievably nice touch if you have every tried to read a pattern's instructions while your hands are full of your in progress project. As an avid needleworker myself my personal experience prompted my choice of spiral binding for it's ease-of-use alone. I bet you'll love it too!

*** Producing the best CD & Spiral Bound Book Republications for you since 1999! ***

An Excerpt:

''The present book has been prepared in response to a demand for something fuller and more completely illustrated than the two smaller handbooks previously printed in my name. My one great object has been to help my fellow workers to make gloves which will prove a pleasure when finished. Knowing that this result could only be attained by scientific patterns, I have not rested satisfied with general appreciation alone, but have had the satisfaction of seeing my pupils turning out gloves which vied with those of the highest professional standard. I venture to think this result is confirmed by the illustrations of the gloves they have made.''

(All gloves displayed in this item's plates were produced by her students utilizing the author's methods which are meticulously presented in the original book, and hence, in this Unabridged CD Republication™.
