If your looking for Needlepoint talk, visit our blog and find interesting topics and helpful tips.
This is an unusual needlepoint book, I know there are very few (if any) other books on this subject. This book has 43 color plates and 28 diagrams.
This book has become incredibly rare. I have sold a number of them over the years and each time I try to replace it, it gets harder to find and more expensive. I think this unique book is worth it.
I know the price of this book is high. I price these rare books based on what it costs me to buy them for re-sale.
All the stitch charts are done in full color with a color key. I think it would be difficult to stitch a plaid without a full color chart. One in shades of gray would be impossible.
The chapters in the book are:
THE PLAID PATTERN
The Plaid Formula
Expanding the Basic Formual
Centering the Pattern
Changing the Color Pattern
Creating Your Own Number Pattern
Following a Chart
Using the Pattern on Any Size Canvas
Pakula Plaid #1
Pakula Plaid #2
Pakula Plaid #3
Pakula Plaid #4
This is a wonderful book, these are gorgeous colors and wonderful plaids.
Published in 1975 by Crown Publishers in New York. This is an extra rare hard cover copy of this book
This is a very good condition copy of this book. The dust jacket is ragged at the edges and there are a few tears. I have taped these to prevent further damage. The book inside is Very Good.
The colors on the cover photograph are never stable, I have seen many degress if discolor over the years. I have no idea why this is so. This one is darkened, but the book inside and the colors pictures in it are unchanged. This only affects the cover. This picture is the current copy I have for sale.
