A Manual of Plain Needlework

I got this book off ebay a while back because I wanted a book on hand stitching techniques. I had never heard of the book, but the price was agreeable, and it wouldn't be a huge loss if the book turned out a disappointment.

The book is actually quite handy. It covers most of the things which may and often do cause headache when finishing garments, such as finishing seams, edges and openings. There's not much in here that's really new, but having it all in one volume is great. I do have other books with sections on hand stitching, but they are big and bulky compared to this slim volume.

If you click on the picture, you will be taken to my flickr account, which holds a few more pictures of the book.
