Do you think sewing and craft books age badly?
I tend to think a lot of the techniques stay the same, even though new, and maybe more 'convenient' stuff may be added over time.
So, when I found these 1970's craft books (part of a 'Time Life' series, if that means anything to anyone) at a local thrift store at 1.50 euro a piece, I decided to take them home with me.
They include the usual techniques for sewing and fitting.
They also feature simple projects, some of which I would still make and wear today.
Of course, the styling pictures are terribly dated.
But I have never found a better tutorial for making leather gloves,
Or a boxy handbag.
And there is a surprising amount of knitting patterns, many of which might still look good.
All in all, I think this was a very good find and I'm sure I will use these in the near future. I'll make sure to credit them when I do.
As ever, more later.
