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 a glossy cover paperbound edition.
This is a good condition copy of this book The edges of the cover pages are worn and a little bent. The inside pages are somewhat yellowed by age. The colors on the cover photograph are never stable, I have seen many degrees of discolor over the years, this cover has darkened I have no idea why this is so. This copy is not bad at all. The spine is tight.
This is a picture of the current copy.
