Another popular book. Rare and getting harder to find in acceptable condition.
This is a beginner level Bargello Needlepoint book, it is rated an A, which is the easiest designation.
The bargello designs are adaptations of Navaho Rugs and early American Quilt patterns. There are 24 designs, with graphs, color photographs, yarn or thread colors used and working instructions. What the book doesn't have is anything telling you how much yarn or thread you need.
But I can remedy that. In general Bargello eats up lots of thread or yarn.
There are several sections in the front of the book telling you how to begin, this is a good book for an absolute beginner to Bargello.
This is a tall and narrow paperbound book. American Heirloom Bargello was published by Crown Publishers in New York in 1977. This is the second copy of this book listed here.
This book is in good condition. The pages are inside are Very Good but the cover is very yellowed and somewhat dirty. It looks like it has been consulted often, used a lot. This is the sign of a good book.
Sadly, sometimes paperbound books do not age well.
I know the cover looks bad but the pages inside are much better.
