I'm willing to give it a go for a few weeks to see if anyone else is interested.
Pretty much every women in my family sews or has sewn, with the exception of a few (cough...Misty!). My Grandma is really good at sewing clothes and has done that for years and years. She would make her own dresses and make the kids' clothes, and then when she and my Grandpa got into square dancing, she would make those outfits too. The Mom has made a few clothes but loathes attaching the zipper, so she generally sticks to home decor stuff. She can whip up a mean roman blind wicked fast! I like to dabble in both clothing and home decor, though I am better at home decor and small craft projects. Back before the internet (such a time existed?!) contained everything ones little heart could possibly desire, they had great big books. I still use books for tips and how to's, but I find I use them less and less now.
I love the graphics of this book.
Grandma gave me her book because it is an awesome one stop shop for sewing tips, tricks and how to's. "This is how they did it before the internet!" Grandma said. "Amazing!!!" I exclaimed! (I'm just goofing, I'm not that young, I even know what a card catalog is!)
This is on the back of the book. I love it!!! "A wonderful world of choice of color and design is open to the women who sews."
So that is what I have for Friends and Family Friday this week. I hope a few of you are able to join in and show off your awesome vintage family/friend piece.
Have a great day everyone! I'm going to go work on price tags and a banner for my new booth. Painting begins this Monday! Woohoo!!!
And I'm linking up with My Romantic Home for Show and Tell Friday.
