by Virginia Snow Studios

Originally Published c1930

If you are the first to bid, using the buy-it-now option, you win! Don't wait, bid now!!!

Up for bid is a marvelous UNABRIDGED CD-ROM REPUBLICATION of the original ''Candlewick Crochet and Tufting'' with NO RESERVE!'' We scanned and reformatted a scare original and are pleased to offer you this wonderful antique crochet and homemade Chinelle beadspreads and pillows reference for your home decorating, boutique sales or gift giving needs!

This HISTORIC CD REPUBLICATION has many photos and patterns regarding the manufacturing of the most exquisite crocheted and ''tufted'' items for the home or gifts! The tufted needlework technique looks to be making one's own chenille pillows and bedspreads! It includes detailed instructions and needle working techniques to make the lovely patterns included!

This would be a great reference item for those interested in church embroidery history, current makers of ecclisiastical ornamentation, reinactment groups, students, needle artists and more! I hardly know where to begin!(Original is NOT for sale)

This is certainly a fine source of historically valuable techniques and inspiration for the creative needlework and fabric artists out there who desire to study and recreate the Depression Era crochet and needlework projects! This is the perfect opportunity to purchase your own version of another wonderful craft instructional revealing our heritage!

An excerpt:

''Life is richer and fuller when one works with the hands, and knows the thrill of personal achievement...Here you will find richest examples of one of the vital handicrafts which has endured through the decades, since our great Grandmothers and ther Grandmothers, drew their colors from the barks and leaves of trees, from the mosses and sumac leaves, and in their ever-brewing dye kettles, with cochineal and quercitron, found the secret that helped to transform drab and uneventful existence omtp a beauty of life and living...You who already are adept in this fascinating art will revel in the new and modern motifs beckoning your fingers. You who are for the first time venturing, will be amazed to discover that such lovely work can be accomplished so simply, and with such ease.''
