I’m beginning to think that no one goes to the library book sales to buy sewing books but me, because I am the only one who seems to buy them. This is great for me, though. Most people are looking for fiction to read, though cookbooks are popular, too. I am especially glad to find the Nancy Zieman book which I was just looking at in the bookstore a month or two ago. It is a real win to pay only 50 cents for this great book. I have a copy of The Sew Fit Manual, but the organization of that book is so confusing that it is hard to find what you are looking for. This new Nancy Zieman book has the same information in a much more reader-friendly format.
Here’s an old newspaper ad that was tucked inside one of the older books. It is fun to see what fabrics cost thirty years ago (November of 1977): I wonder what a ‘mock interlock’ was. Or maybe it is a ‘mock coordinate’.
