Whew!! Some of this is, I'm sure, dated. This was compiled and printed in 1976 but much of it is still applicable.
I have absolutely nothing to add to this listing, everything youy need to know is in this booklet. It is very rare.
A Handbook For Judged and Juried Shows and Exhibitions is in only OK condition. The paper is yellowed by age and the edges are ragged, however, it is all there and readable. I apologize for the condition but the rarity of this makes it acceptible as it is
I recently bought this collection of fine vintage and out-of-print needlework books from Carol Korman. There are many excellent books on this among the books she sent me. Some of these books are very rare and unique.
Carol was raised in Anchorage, Alaska. Her Husband travelled the world as a Civil Engineer, they lived in 6 countries over 22 years. She studied Needlepoint and Embroidery all over the world.
On retirement she took classes at the EGA (Embroidery Guild of America) and ANG (American Needlepoint Guild). She became certified as a Needlework Judge for both EGA and ANG.
Carol went on the become a Master EGA Needlework Judge.
In 2000 Carol Korman became ANG Western Area Representative, she was president on ANG from 2006 to 2008.
Carol and her husband live in Texas, at 80 she still stitches. Carol and I both hope that her books add to your pleasure as you pursue Needlepoint
