SOLD 3 Vintage Embroiderers' Guild Journals (Set 4 of 5) * £12 €19 $45 Including Shipping

There are just 5 sets remaining of my vintage collection of Embroidery - the journals of the Embroiderers' Guild. The journals are rare and precious documents of embroidery and date back to 1950. Each is rich with needlework research and practical projects of the past and include regular articles by such luminaries as Rachel Kay-Shuttleworth. Shipping costs lately seem to keep doubling every time I blink, so please be aware that $45 does include shipment to your door and if you would like more than one set, we can probably give you a reduction as we save on posting - just email. Each journal has around 30 pages of A4 that are absolutely fascinating. Here you can see a few examples of what to expect taken from just some of the pages of these journals. This set comprises Spring 1959, Summer 1959 and Winter 1953.
