How to Use Florence Knitting Silk No. 4!


Originally Published by the Nonotuck Silk Co. in 1882!


Up for bid is a CD REPRODUCTION  of the original ''How to Use Florence Knitting Silk No. 4'' published by the Nonotuck Silk Co. during the Victorian era! This item was originally published in Florence, Mass, in 1882! (Original is NOT for sale)

This HISTORIC CD Republication contains guidelines, instructions, diagrams, designs and instructional fundamentals for creating a variety of classic and stylish knit, crochet, drawn work, Irish Lace, cross stitch and sewing projects from the Victorian era!
