SUMMARY- This is a little bag or purse that you can wear as a necklace - I presume to keep your shuttle and whatever small project you're currently working on handy for those moments when you're waiting in the line of life. This package included the beads and a card of 100% silk thread as well as the pattern. I don't know whether all Mrs. Alderson's kits originally came with the supplies needed or not. I bought all the other kits new in the last five years or so(sans all but the instruction sheet), but the beaded purse kit that I have is original vintage. The patterns are in standard symbol notation and broken down for easy reading. I would have liked a larger picture of the samples. All the SnowGoose catalog of patterns are by Betty Alderson, who passed away around 1999. Her copyright has not been orphaned, however, thanks to Sherry Cure and her husband, who bought Snowgoose Lace to continue its legacy.
