 Under NEW Management!  

Crochet seems to be a fairly recent needlecraft. 

That is if you can call 200 years fairly recent.  But for historical needlecraft purposes crochet really is the new kid on the block. There are no known examples prior to 1800.  So our Grandmother's were really trendy when they spent their time crocheting doilies and pillowcase trim.

 

Here are a couple of facinating articles on the art of crochet  History of Crochet Wikipedia and Crochet Guild of America

 

We offer many vintage pattern books from such industry standards as J & P Clark, Coats and Clark, Red Heart, American Thread, Spool, Star, Aunt Lydia and the newer Annie's.  These books will be shipped within 3 days to your mailing address.

 

Be sure to check our selection of PDF files which are downloadable from your paid invoice.
