EMMA FARNES

Here are the booklets I know of from Emma Farnes' published series. Reviews are of the books of the series that I own. I have the complete set! She published during the 1910's and -20's, and was a crochet Designer. I collect her for the few tatting patterns, which happen to actually be Anna Valeire's work - they shared a publisher and there are hints that they were friends. Books "B", "E" and "I" are the only ones with tatting in them. She published during a time period where there was a lot of competition from other great designers like Anna Wuerfel Brown, Adeline Cordet, Mary Fitch, Sophie LaCroix, Virginia Snow, Anna Valeire, and, of course, the famous Anne Orr - all self-published and master designers of several needlearts.

The Publisher, E.C. Spuehler, was apparently allergic to putting copyright dates on the books he published, so the dates I give are approximate for the designers who published through him.
