Apache Beadwork Instructions and Designs!

Spiral Bound Book Republication™

Originally Published in 1903!


If you are the first to bid on this auction, using the buy-it-now option, YOU WIN! There's no chance of being outbid! DON'T WAIT!


Up for bid is another Dakota Prairie Treasures(TM) Spiral Bound Book Republication™ of the original Edwardian Era ''Apache Beadwork Instructions and Designs'' produced by Austin-Walker Sales Co., published in 1903! These folks provided some of the best instructions books in their day for the bead arts! The experienced needlecraft and fancywork artesians of the early 1900's (Victorian and Edwardian) clamored for this type of item and with good reason! 

This HISTORIC item contains instructions, graphed designs and fundamentals for creating the extremely handsome loomed beadwork items of the early Edwardian era! (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 needle worker myself my personal experience prompted my choice of spiral binding for it's ease-of-use alone. I bet you'll love it too!


This item is a great resource for those who love beading the great old styles, those involved in historical reenactment, bead enthusiasts and students of historical clothing, fiber and textile arts, etc!


Includes loom bead work, illustrated projects with written instructions plus color and shading guides! There are 56 patterns in workable, large sized patterns for your beading pleasure!

These patterns could also be used for the sister crafts of embroidery, petit point, cross stitch, beaded crochet, beaded knitting for  clothing embellishments, doilies, table runners, household decorations, kitchen towels, bed and bathroom decorations and much much more...

You will also find historical facts on this ancient craft as well as various RARE and UNIQUE guidelines to assist you along the way to recreating the needleworked bead items of a classy and gentile society! One pattern included is described as having been old in George Washington's time!

These instructions are characteristic of the fancy work done by our oh-so-feminine lady ancestors during the Victorian and Edwardian eras! This is the perfect opportunity to purchase your own version of another wonderful craft book revealing our heritage from early America and Europe!


An excerpt:

''Rare indeed is the woman whose fingers do not linger lovingly on the beautiful beads which are so temptingly displayed on the counters of all the large stores. Rarer still is the one who does not secretly, if not openly, break that commandment which admonishes us not to covet, as her eyes wander from one basket to another filled with their treasures which vie with the colors of the rainbow...(at) This time it is the Indian work which is done on a hand loom that is attracting lovers of fancy work: and the handsome indeed in design and workmanship are the belts, sashes, fan, lorgnette, and watch-chains, purses, bracelets and fobs, which are woven on these looms.''
