Spiral Bound Book Republication™

Originally published in 1967!

 

If you're 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 marvelous Dakota Prairie Treasures Spiral Bound Book Republication™  of the original ''How to Make Hats''!  

This HISTORIC item contains instructions, diagrams, designs and instructional fundamentals for creating a variety of lovely hat styles that never seem to go out of style! There are many designs and reference facts included! There are unique, vintage instructions and diagrams for ultra-feminine, lacy, ribboned head adornments! (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!

*** Producing the best CD & Spiral Book Republications since 1999! ***

 

An excerpt:

''This is a concise and practical guide to the increasingly popular subject of home millinery ...It will appeal to any woman with a flair for making things as well as to Women's Institutes and those evening institutes and institutes of further education where the subject is taught. The illustrations show clearly every stage of operation as well as different shapes and styles.

A Hat is an important part of the well-dressed woman's attire and often increases the attractiveness of her appearance considerably. Sometimes you may have said to yourself ''I wish I could find a hat like that,'' or, perhaps, ''I wish I could make a hat like that for myself.'' Well, with a certain amount of patience and determination, you can learn to make just the kind of hats you want. 

This book has been written to help any woman with a flair for making things to embark on the creation of her own hats. It will provide here with an interesting hobby, and in addition she will be able to have three hats for the price of one.''
