VIRGINIA SNOW

Here are the booklets I know of from Virginia Snow Studio's series under the brand name "Collingbourne's". The name Virginia Snow Studios was a marketing name for Collingbourne Mills, Inc., which published a large number of pattern books for Crochet, but also published Tatting, Quilting, Knitting, Smocking, Hardanger, and Beadwork. Collingbourne Mills published during a time period(1910's and '20's) when there was a lot of competition from other great designers like Anna Wuerfel Brown, Adeline Cordet, Emma Farnes, Mary E. Fitch, Sophie LaCroix, Frances Harris, Anna Valeire and the 800lb gorilla of the needlearts, Anne Orr - all popular and master designers of several needlearts. Reviews are of the books of the series that I own. I don't have all the details on this line of books, so you'll see a lot of questionmarks as you go down the list.
