How To Embroidery Stitches Star PDF Book 221 American Thread

Details

AT-221: The ABC of Embroidery is Start Book 221 from American Thread Company, Vintage mid 1960s. This is a handy book for those just learning embroidery, or those who want to learn additional, or more advanced stitches. This book contains pages of stitches (see contents page in picture two), with diagrams for each stitch. With this book, one could master the stitches and move on to become proficient at embroidery. There are a couple patterns in the book, as referenced in the pictures, however, mostly to reinforce use of some of the stitches.

This is a good how-to book for both the beginner and intermediate user.

NOTE: This is a PDF, not paper pattern book. I have scanned this public domain book to a PDF file. The file will be sent to you by Email (NO Shipping Costs). You can open with an Adobe Reader (a link to download will be included in case you don't already have). You can then refer to the pattern from your screen, or print. The PDF file will be forwarded to your email address within 12 hours of payment.

Let me know if you have any questions. And, as always, thanks for looking.

Originally, I simply scanned the patterns. But, often - as patterns from magazines and books were often spread over numerous pages - the end result was unattractive and, honestly, a bit difficult to read. (Old, possible damaged, paper scans and looks like old paper). So, I started experimenting with different ways to process these old patterns.

I ended up with a process where the patterns are scanned to a word document, carefully proofed and then reformatted back to a pattern with larger print (no more magnifying glasses needed) and 1 ½ lines sentence spacing, and then converted to a PDF document. This is a labor intensive process, however, it results in an Easy-to-Read, Easy-to-Use document that I am proud to preserve and offer. I do put a copyright mark on the pattern you will receive, but Note: I am referencing the format of the pattern only. These are public domain patterns and you may create and sell the items you make. I only ask, that you do not resell the pattern in my reworked format.

It is my hope you will enjoy working with these re-digitized vintage patterns, and visit me often. I list new patterns almost daily.

Just perfect! Thanks!

Sweet vintage crochet toy pattern - I agree about the balls being light enough to toss around without causing damage. 1940s version of Nerf balls. ;>D
Great transaction - ArtFire people are the best!
