Barbara, I wish you were treasure hunting with me today we would have had loads of fun! I love those books, so sweet!


What a sweet story.

I love treasures that bring back memories!
Have a great night!


You find the best stuff, it really is amazing!
I think you should keep ALL of those treasures!

How fabulous that you found something so special. The illustrations... sewing straight lines and curves...I still do that with my students today.


You experienced the magic of shopping for treasures. It's so much more than most people can imagine. It's a shame that there are generations of girls that have no idea of the memories that sewing, crocheting, knitting, and baking can have for the rest of their lives. I made sure that I taught my daughter all of these things.

Enjoy the memories.


Isn't it delightful when you find something like that and it takes you on a sentimental journey!? I recently ran across my first sewing book, 'The Lucky Sew- it-Yourself Book' from 196...well the year doesn't really matter now does it... ;) I won it on e-bay! It now once again sits proudly on the bookshelf in my studio. It makes me smile. Lucky you to have/had one of those groovy sewing machines!


unbelievably cute and sweet...so glad the right person found them.


I love that you found your first sewing book! (I'm giving you an award. http://pipstitch.blogspot.com/2008/07/another-award.html )

How absolutely wonderful - I am feeling vicariously "restored" for you.
