As manufactured goods became more easily available, ladies developed crafts such as needlework, to occupy their increased leisure time. This book illustrates and describes over 200 items used by Victorian and Edwardian ladies in their needlecrafts. It includes needlecases, scissors, tape-measures, thread waxers, pincushions and thimble.
