$70.00 $87.50

The book is in good condition. There is no mold on or in the book. There are no bad odors on or in the book.

The pages are very readable and clean. The edges of the pages have some discoloration. There are some vintage wear, spots of discoloration, and rub areas on or in the book.

There are markings on the front cover. The dust jacket shows signs of wear. It is held tight by plastic tape inside the front and back covers - see pictures.

The broad range of sewing information contained within this book is astounding. Of course, it may be natural to simply assume that since the topics or practices are so broad, the book cannot possibly have any depth in any of the areas. However, it is important to remember that a greater grasp of the overall practice of needlepoint will in turn bring about a greater motivation and appreciation for the particulars.

The decorative possibilities for this book are many. The sewing room would certainly welcome this book. While it looks very worn, it is important to remember that probably means it is very very useful.

The collector will appreciate this book for the broad coverage of its topic.

***Free Shipping in USA

***Shipping will include insurance.

***Shipping for Everywhere Else on the planet:

If you are from outside the United States and you wish to purchase this product put in your correct address and it should populate a quote. If a shipping cost cannot be populated outside of the United States it is possible that the item is too big to be shipped or it is listed for local pickup only. However, please check with me to make sure as sometimes there could be system errors. If you have further questions concerning shipping outside of the USA please contact me.

***Note on Measurements: All measurements are taken and described as close as possible. The actual laying down or standing up of an item may change that size a little bit. Where only an approximate measurement is available we will put approximately in the listing.

***We clean our vintage inventory of surface dirt and dust before we list it on our site. We would not want to receive something dirty so we are not going to send our customers something with original dust or dirt. However please note that after shipping we recommend all items be cleaned thoroughly before use. This does three things: (1) It helps you know your item, (2) It helps you insure your item is clean according to your standards, and (3) It removes any dust or grime that may have come from the shipping and delivery process.

***We do not polish or repaint our inventory as many of our customers prefer the vintage patina look over a new painted or polished look.

***Please pay close attention to the pictures as they may show more than I may be able to explain.

***We aim to be good stewards of our planet; therefore, we may use or reuse boxes and/or packing that are clean and ship worthy.

***The manufacture or year-it-was-made is an estimate based upon experience, similar items, and/or appearance.

***As is common with pre-owned items they could have little marks that are not so easily detectable. While I do personally inspect each item, I can miss small marks that may not show up with a regular inside light. That being said, I am very picky and careful to make sure the details are explained truthfully, honestly, and upfront. If you see a questionable mark that is not in the description on an item you are interested in please contact me.

***Please note that since we offer free shipping in the United States, the actual first Shipping costs incurred due to the transaction from the seller to the buyer will be deducted from any returned and/or refundable purchases with the exception of missing items, damages from shipping, listing, and/or condition errors, along with full compliance of Etsy return and refund standards. We are dedicated to our customers and always strive for your satisfaction.
