Born in 1836, Isabella Beeton (known universally as Mrs Beeton) is recognised today as the foremost Victorian authority on cookery and homemaking. Though her most famous volume is undoubtedly Mrs Beeton's Book of Household Management, she was also highly accomplished in all aspects of needlework.
Mrs Beeton's Guide to Embroidery, Crochet and Knitting is the ultimate guide to vintage needlework. As well as providing a nostalgic insight into times gone by, this fully illustrated and comprehensive book remains a practical and relevant guide for the modern crafter. Containing over 200 unique patterns alongside clear and engaging descriptions of key techniques, this is an essential volume for anyone with an interest in vintage fashion and needlework.
