LILY MILLS COMPANY, Shelby, NC

This is a series of needleart booklets(mostly crochet, but some tatting too) that is fairly close to home, as I live in North Carolina. They were published in the 1940's and '50's. I have only a small handful of them, but will eventually make a more concerted effort to find more. When I do, I'll have this page set up and ready to receive them. I've got the ones I do have reviewed here.
