ANNA VALEIRE

Here are the booklets I know of from Anna Valeire's self-published series. Reviews are of the books of the series that I own. She was a prolific and talented designer primarily in Tatting and Crochet. 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 Fitch, Sophie LaCroix, and Virginia Snow - all self-published and master designers of several needlearts. She was apparently friends with Emma Farnes, and contributed tatting designs to several of Emma Farnes' crochet books. They shared a publisher, E.C. Spuehler, who 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.
