Woman's Institute Of Domestic Arts and Sciences Book !A Essential Stitches

Woman's Institute Of Domestic Arts and Sciences
Book 1A-3 PART 1
ESSENTIAL STITCHES AND SEAMS
By Mary Brooks Pickens
Dated 1921 with 70 pages
Complete Original in Nice Condition

I have several of these rare sewing books to get on today. These are from the Woman's Institute of Domestic Arts and Sciences. This was a mail order company which offered a sewing course by mail and is was very detailed. Each book covered one aspect of sewing and design and it nicely illustrated. It was written by Mary Brooks Picken and she was an influential American author of numerous books on needlework, sewing, and textile arts. Born in Aug. 6 1886, she founded the Woman's Institute of Domestic Arts and Sciences in Scranton, PA. She was an authority on dress, fabric, design, and sewing. She taught "Economics of Fashion" at Columbia University and was one of the five founding directors of the Costume Institute. This book is in great condition and comes to you complete with all the page which are tight in the binding. This is a soft cover book with test questions at the end covering the contents. This is a wonderful piece of sewing history and reference for fine heirloom sewing. The book measures 5.5 x 8.5 inches.
