"Book of Needlework" 1916

This antique needlework book with tatting patterns was published 1916. Size approx. 6" x 9". It has 100 pages. There are only 7 pages of tatting. Page 75 through 81. These pages are posted for you. They are rather large and I have posted the pages in landscape orientation so that you can read the instructions without difficulty. You may want to change your printer orientation from portrait to landscape mode or capture the jpg's and run them through the IRFANVIEWER to adjust size as you wish.

Also posted are pages 98 and 99 which have illustrations of two types of tatting shuttles and the description about them on the facing page. The back of this book contains numerous ads for thread, needles, and sewing implements as well as descriptions of their manufacture and uses.
