Mrs Beeton (1836-1865) was every bit as accomplished in needlework as she was in cookery and household management. This book contains more than 200 patterns, alongside clear descriptions of key techniques, to provide a nostalgic and practical guide to vintage needlework. There is embroidery for edges, borders, collars and cuffs, crochet for doilies, and knitting for socks, shawls and babies, among many other projects.
