VIRGINIA SNOW

Here are the booklets I know of from Virginia Snow's self-published series under the brand name "Collingbourne's". Reviews are of the books of the series that I own. She was a prolific designer primarily in Crochet, but also published Tatting, Quilting, Knitting, Smocking, Hardanger, and Beadwork. She 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, and Anna Valeire - all self-published and master designers of several needlearts. 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. I was the least impressed with Ms. Snow's books - at least the one's I've seen. I include them only for the sake of completeness.
