Martha Pullen and Friends Series
Sue Hausmann, Elizabeth Rhodes and Martha Pullen have an invitation for you to enjoy a book they have written especially for you. Three women -- drawn into a circle of friendship by their love of sewing and their passion for collecting infant and older babies' clothing from the Victorian era -- have personally selected portions of their cherished private collections to share with today's world of heirloom sewing and vintage fashion devotees. Each page of this first volume in the new series, Martha Pullen and Friends, brings sewing inspiration for modern interpretations of tomorrow's heirlooms. Descriptive text, in the voice of each item's owner, combines with full-color photographs to transport the reader back in time to the discovery and acquisition of each piece. Also available, as an aid in the creation of reproductions, are two companion CDs containing almost 100 machine embroidery designs that have been beautifully adapted from the nearly 60 featured garments and baby's layette items.
