Up for bid is another Dakota Prairie Treasures Spiral Bound Book 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 artists. The instructions for these items were clamored for in the Victorian Era, and with good reason! These charming patterns were created by experienced Victorian needle and fiber artists from 1899 and earlier! (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!


Our customers say:

 ''Satisfactory in every way.''


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…


An excerpt:

 ''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. These instructions are characteristic of the needle arts and crafts done by our lady ancestors! This is the perfect opportunity to purchase your own version of another wonderful craft instructional revealing our heritage from early America and European!
