Up for bid is another lovely Dakota Prairie Treasures Spiral Bound Book Republication™ ''DMC The Net Work Embroidery on Net Work!'' This item contains many patterns and instructions from making your own netted lace (or how to select store bought netting) to fanciful embroideries shown in color images! These folks provided some of the best instruction books for the needle arts ever published! The experienced needlecraft and fancywork artisans of the late 1800's to early 1900's clamored for this type of item and with good reason! (Original is NOT for sale)

This item is a great resource for those who are Victorian and Edwardian Era historical reenactment enthusiasts, opera, stage and theatre costumers, and students of historical clothing, fiber and textile arts, etc!

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!

This 60 page item covers the gentle art of using linen, cotton or other materials, needles and various threads (silk, linen and cotton) to make the daintiest (but also amazingly sturdy) decorative netted fancy work; needlework doilies, centerpieces,dresser scarves, tidies, and clothes for the classiest of homes and families!

You can readily find these antique and vintage linen and other materials on Atomic Mall! You just have to search a little bit! :) Or, you can select similar contemporary items on Atomic Mall or at your nearest craft, hobby or fabric store.

 You can see this book will keep you busy a long time making beautiful, dainty, colorful decorative soft home furnishings and fabric items for you and yours, as gifts or to sell!

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

An excerpt:

''Embroidery on net has become one of the most attractive kinds of needlework, being both easy to do and adaptable to a great variety of uses. The reason of its not having until now taken its rightful place amongst the many different forms of needlework, and of having failed to find favour with amateurs of fancy work, is perhaps due to the knotted net on which it had to be done having to be made by hand which was a slow and rather tedious process. But now net materials with meshes of every sort of size are machine-made, which imitate the hand-made to perfection and bear washing equally well.

The embroideries reproduced in the plates of the present album have all been worked on such machine-made net and we have satisfied ourselves that it meets every requirement and in every respect equals the hand-made article.

Nevertheless, added to the description of the different embroidery stitches employed, the necessary directions for making the net by hand are given in case any of our readers should prefer making it themselves.  ''
