As an avid needleworker myself my personal experience prompted my choice of spiral binding for it's ease-of-use alone. I bet you'll love it too! This is certainly a fine source of historically valuable techniques and inspiration for the creative millinery and fabric artists out there who recreate the hats and headdresses from the early 1900's. This is the perfect opportunity to purchase your own version of another wonderful craft instructional revealing our heritage from early America and European cultures! Two excerpts: "In compiling the following book, the author has in her mind, not only the teaching of a handicraft, but the hope of presenting her subject in such a form as may stimulate thought, ingenuity, and originality. Millinery suffers perhaps more than most subjects from its transitoriness, but with the foundation work carefully and fully described, it is believed that the serious student will be able to apply this knowledge to the new ideas which must continually occur. Should this hope be fulfilled the author has achieved her object of raising Millinery from a mere craft to an educational subject." "One of the first tasks of the student is to provide herself with a pattern from which to make her hat. There are two usual methods of obtaining this: (a) By pinning soft paper or muslin over each part of a shape already to head, and moulding it until it fits exactly the form of the shape desired; (b) by drafting the pattern geometrically. Both methods are good, and provided that the shape required is always to hand, and a pattern can be moulded from it, method (a) is probably the easier and quicker for the unskilled draughtswoman. But it is certain that if method (b) is thoroughly understood, it leads to greater originality and more knowledge of shape cutting and making, as well as opening up very wide possibilities in shape designing; and that the time and patience expended in mastering this part of the craft will, in time, be amply repaid." CONTENTS Chapter I. The History of Millinery II.
