Vintage Needle Books








Aren't these great? Vintage needle books from the 40s and 50s, I think. I have no idea what I'm going to do with them, but I love the images. My small collection consists of these 5 books (one set above is a front/back). Here is a short article about a collector featured in Country Living with 150+ needle books. They are such cute pieces to use as decorating accents, for framing or for paper projects and can often be found for under $5.00 (ranging in price, of course, from $3-$100). If you're interested in finding some for yourself, check antique markets, Americana Resources, or the long list on ebay.

Why does reading your blog make me feel old... er... "vintage"? ;-)

Such wonderful colors! Isn't it interesting that the first one & the last one seem to be the same, just updated? But updated a long time ago...you probably wouldn't see a circle of women so thrilled with a sewing needle in 21st century advertising.
