Hand Sewing Lessons

Hand Sewing Lessons (PDF ebook)

This vintage instruction manual, originally published in 1905, is a great THREE YEAR course in hand sewing basics designed for home or school instruction. This is quite different than the sewing resource we offered months ago. Lots of helpful instructions for the teacher, with many projects and ideas for teaching. Check it out if you are interested in teaching this largely neglected but eminently practical skill.

  1. This looks like it would be just what I was looking for, but when I open it, it is unreadable. Is anyone else having the same trouble?

  2. I downloaded this file with no problems, but the pages of the .pdf are completely unreadable! Any suggestions?

  3. I have the same problem, I can not read what I have downloaded, but I was able to read it on line just fine.

  4. Thank you for this valuable resource. I’ve been wanting to teach my 7 yo daughter to sew and wasn’t sure where to begin. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

  5. If you scroll down past the blue book picture and click on where it says “Click here for today’s resource!” then click on “alternate link” in case above is busy. I can read it perfectly!

    Thank you,

  6. Thank you so much for this hand-sewing book. I’ve been looking for a book like this for quite a while now. I’m excited to use it!
