Up for bid is another marvelous Dakota Prairie Treasures Unabridged Spiral Bound Book Republication™ of the original, ''How to Make Gloves by Eunice Close!'' Originally published in 1950! 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 late 40's and early 50's clamored for this type of item and with good reason! (Original is NOT for sale)

Unlike many of our current culture's leather craft books likelihood of just providing you with a general one-size-fits-all glove pattern, that may or may not fit the intended wearer of your creations, this item gives explicit & detailed instructions on how to produce a custom made pattern so your items truly ''fit like a glove!''

All Dakota Prairie Treasures CD Republications™ are viewable on Windows, Mac and Linux PC operating systems!

This item is a great resource for those who are SCA members, historical reenactment enthusiasts, students of historical clothing, theatre costumers, fiber and textile arts, etc!

Our customers say:

 ''WONDERFUL VINTAGE PATTERNS!!! Check out this store!!!! A+A+A+A+A+''

This HISTORIC item contains an UNABRIDGED 100 PAGES and includes a historic outline, photos, illustrations, written guidance instructions and fundamentals for creating the extremely handsome leatherwork items of an earlier, and more perfectionistic, arts and crafts era!

There is much expert craftsman guidance provided for the many differing types of gloves that can be made for your referencing and leather craft recreationist pleasure!

This item's contents may be an ideal reference or guide book for those interested in recreationist avenues and groups, such as, black powder, mountain man, Victorian, Edwardian, Civil War, Society for Creative Anachronism and more!

You will also find historical facts on this ancient craft (from which leathers are best to use for each project to how to wash a completed pair of gloves!) as well as various RARE and UNIQUE guidelines to assist you along the way to recreating the handsome and practical leather items of a earlier classy and genteel society!

These culturally historic instructions are characteristic of the fancy work done by our ancestors during the WWII Era and earlier! This is the perfect opportunity to purchase your own version of another wonderful DPT CD Republication™ revealing our heritage from early America and Europe!

An Excerpt:

''When you take up glove making as a craft you are joining a company which has a long and honorable history, going back through many centuries...Gloves are, of course, a normal part of our ordinary dress and as such they vary with the changing fashions...Wise glove makers will always be on the alert to detect new trends in fashion. A careful and regular survey of the goods in the glove department of a high-class store will do more than anything else to keep us up-to-date in all those details which mark off the gloves of one season from those of the next...''

''The great advantage of making gloves by hand is that each pair can be made to fit the wearer for whom it is intended...Leather gloves are, of course the most hard-wearing of all. they keep their shape well and are warm and comfortable.''
