Machine Stitchery - Gay Swift (1974) - vintage handbook for sewing machine users
 
Gay Swift, "Machine Stitchery" (London and Sydney, B T Batsford Ltd, 1974; ISBN 0 7134 2883 X). Vintage hardback book (dark blue cloth boards, gilt title to spine) with original colour pictorial dustjacket, 96pp plus colour plates, measuring approximately 20.3 x 20.7 x 1.5cm (8 x 8.15 x 0.6in). "Here is a valuable handbook for the growing number of people who use sewing machines both at home and in schools. It has been prepared for those who are already familiar with their machine, know how to care for it, and can competently control most sewing processes ... The sections include embroidery with the presser foot, free machine embroidery, technical development, instructions on transferring designs and some working methods, openwork and quilting, and a chapter indicating some further developments."
 
The dustjacket is price-clipped with a short tear to the top together with some creasing and indentations, and is foxed and tanned to the inside; the board cover is faded to some edges with a linear mark to the back board; the pages are discoloured with light brown marking / foxing together with creasing to some corners.
