This is our second book by this author and this publisher--it is unconditionally the finest printing/photos we have ever seen. The topic is covered with great knowledge, detail and magnificant photos. We now use her name in our searches----if she writes it or recommends it, we will buy it and love it. We even give her books as gifts to fellow collectors and are proud to make such a book presentation---We can only hope she will write more...on any collectable topic!...a true 10 star author.

I picked this book up because I am often in antique stores and notice the odd little 'this and thats' but sometimes cannot figure out what the 'this and that' was supposed to do. Well, this book answers those questions quite nicely and the photos are simply beautiful. If you are not an antique shopper to begin with, I suspect that this book will inspire you to get into the car and drive to the nearest antique mall to see if you can located any of these delightful little tresures in real life! Even if you never set foot in an antique store, this book will delight you with the photos and history of needlework tools. Beautiful book and well worth the money.

This is a lovely book. The many pictures and descriptions are very helpful in becoming informed about these treasures. The only negative for me is that there were no guidelines regarding value. As a novice I would have benefited by getting a ballpark idea of value when purchasing.Antique Needlework Tools and Embroideries

I purchased this book as a gift for my mother. She absolutely loves it. The photography and descriptions are great. The quality of the book is first rate. If you have someone in your life that loves to collect antique needlework tools, this book will make them very happy.

I kept seeing this book referred to on ebay so I ordered and am really glad I did! The photos and information are priceless for anyone who collects antique sewing tools.
