I always hesitate to post about a "new find" because I am afraid everyone but me already knows about it, and I am just woefully out of touch (as is usually the case). Anyway, if you already know about this site, please bear with me. Maybe there is someone else out there that hasn't heard about it, and it really is too good to miss.
This morning while rambling around on the Internet I came across this wonderful site:
If you love old crochet patterns like I do, I know you will want to visit. They have pdf's of many wonderful old crochet, knitting, tatting and other needlecraft books and magazines. They are all in pdf format, and they are FREE!!!! I spent an hour looking through many of the old crochet books. They even had a copy of "The Bungalow Crochet Book" by Winifred Clark, which I have been searching for forever. Unfortunately, I didn't find the other book by Winifred Clark for children's and baby crocheted items that I have been looking for, but there were many more beautiful old books. All of the books are in the public domain, so there is no copyright infringement.
This is a marvelous site, and they are doing such a wonderful service to the crochet community by preserving and sharing these amazing old books. I am going to look through my old patterns and see if I have any I can contribute.
