Have you seen the book? June 09 2017

A customer brought this incredible book into thimbles & things.   It is now in Sue's possession.

1939

Brown paper cover like we all remember having to put on our school books.

 

Old catalogue re-purposed as a scrap book.

Newspaper clipping of quilts and other needlework items.

Pages full of poems and anecdotes from newspapers.   One in particular is most worthy of mention.   It was about a woman who toiled all day long to keep dirt out of her home.... only to be covered by dirt after she passed away.

That is full permission to get quilting!

If you haven't seen it yet, ask Sue to show it to you.   Well worth your perusal.
