A Handweaver's Pattern Book by Marguerite Davidson 1951 Revised edition

This is the hardback 1951 revised edition.  The book was a library book, which was only checked out twice in 1971. It does not have a dust jacket, but it is in excellent condition for a book this old.  This edition is unavailable on Amazon, but the 1950 edition of the same book is available used and is priced at $41.50 to 89.71 + shipping.  I am asking $30 + shipping.

Here is the product description:

Stated Revised edition. A modern handbook of four-harness patterns for weavers of all types, whether amateur or professional. Contains three hundred and forty-five threading directions ranging from simple twills to complicated techniques. All are small patterns which may be woven on a sixteen inch warp if so desired, except one chapter of very large patterns. Each design is given many treadlings. These are illustrated with over twelve hundred weavings - all personally made. Directions are set down in a simple diagram. 217 pages.

Asking $30. + shipping. Ships from central Florida.  Contact:  LHansee@aol.com or phone (607) 738-1964.

Fiber-y books

Books are a "first pass" going through my fiber library - because I can't, alas, keep them all, wonderful as they are.  Unless otherwise noted, they're hardcover.  Prices have been checked on Amazon and they're lower than prices charged there; shipping will need to be added.  They're in good condition, from a non-smoking home. Buy any five and I'll throw in an extra for free to enjoy during the long winter.   There's a time limit because I live in a small house: by the week before Christmas, they're either gone or donated to the local library.  Contact me with what you'd like at threads@empacc.net and I'll get back to you with shipping costs.  Paypal, please.
