1979 The World in Stitches product catalog vintage threads & materials


1979 catalog from The World in Stitches, one of the earliest and best-stocked mail order sources! 5-1/2″ by 8-1/4″ with 38 pages, some color. Wonderful reference with lists and detailed descriptions of all kinds of silk and metal threads and other yarns, fabrics and canvas– very useful if you like vintage patterns are and looking for substitutes for products no longer in production. Color photos of antique Dutch sampler and Bayeux Tapestry kits are an interesting feature, and the cover needlepoint offers some textural stitch ideas.
Generally good condition– no missing or torn pages, nor marks or writing, corners are worn and creased. Scuff mark on back cover.
