My mom has had that book for as long as I can remember!  I had forgotten about it though.  I'm gonna have to go "borrow" it!  Thanks for the reminder! Grin

I hope you can find it.  I found this copy at a second hand store that was so crammed full of stuff, I don't think the old guy even knows what he's got.

I don't know if it's being sold as new anywhere.  Maybe on Amazon.com.

http://www.amazon.com/Readers-Digest-Complete-Guide-Needlework/dp/0888500858  Here is another one to look out for.  I've owned it for 20+ years but I know I've seen is at thrift stores and garage sales.  I also had one in the same style for home repair that was excellent.  Unfortunately I lent it out and it has never been returned.  Embarrassed

I have had the complete guide to needlework for several years and it is my ultimate go-to book for needlework. I didn't know about the crafts and hobbies one until last week when I read about it here, and wished I could find on for my library. Then guess what happened!! On Friday I was at  an antique mall and it called my name!! It was sitting on a bottom shelf all lonely and afraid, so of course I had to bring it home and give it a good home with its sibling book! It has some great stuff in it!

This is the greatest book, I borrowed from from grandmother years ago and have yet to give it back to her. It is my crafting bible!

I hope you find it.  It's worth it's weight in gold.  I've already used my copy several times.

I'll have to have a look for this book. Incidently I have "borrowed" the RD Farmhouse cookery book (I've found my own copy since) and it's my cooking bible I use it all the time you can't beat the Reader's Digest Grin
