Excerpt from The Ladies Guide to Needle-Work Martha Washington received her lady friends, rising from her knitting or sewing, and resuming the work of her fingers while conversing, and there are specimens of her skill still treasured. Too much cannot be said in favor of this branch of feminine education, and it is a grievous error to allow girls to arrive at maturity ignorant of the full use of the needle. It should be introduced into the daily routine of every school, more especially the plainer and more useful branches, and as early as possible every girl should be required to make and keep in perfect repair the articles in her own wardrobe. Fancy work is a secondary consideration, although this little book will be for the guidance of those, who, having conquered the mysteries of plain sewing, turn for recreation to the daintier and prettier arts of embroidery and fancy knitting. The march of progress extends into this domain as well as all others, and every day some new fancy is displayed in needlework simply for ornamentation. But While the variety of form and use is endless, close examination will generally prove to the expert needlewoman that the most complicated and bewildering com himations reduce themselves to some simple stitch or rule perfectly familiar to them, and the embroidery, crochet, or knitting needle already in possession is the only implement required. The stores for the sale of fancy work, also supply every variety of material carefully prepared for use, simplifying every branch of needlework. To attempt to describe every article in detail would far exceed the compass of this little volume. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
