SUMMARY- There wasn't actually a Table of Contents, but I found the names of the designs interesting, so I made one up so you can share in the fascination. I really liked a lot of the patterns in this one - the baby bonnet especially. It's done in strips and is really lovely. I also really loved the Rotoma Collar. It's all very traditional stuff, but well executed and heirloom worthy. I wish I knew the exact year it was published. This isn't a pattern book for beginners - despite the obligatory lesson reprinted on the first three pages. But I think this one would produce some exceptional wedding pieces that would be treasured. The photos are all black and white. She announces in the introduction a metal shuttle she's had produced that comes with three bobbins and a built in hook.
