SUMMARY- This isn't a pattern book, so it has no pattern, instruction, or mechanics ratings. It is what it says it is. I saw it for the first time in 2006 - and I still think it's pretty cool. The introduction promised an updated reprint, but I don't think it ever came to pass. I'm still researching that. It's a shame. A resource guide that lists websites as well as addresses would be a huge boon. I've had to hunt hard for resources that got listed here. There are little business hints throughout the listings from the women that are well worth reading even 21 years later. It makes me wistful that I don't know them all. One of my projects for this year is to do an enormous mailing of SASE's to see who is still in business.
