We could probably do everything in the book if we really applied ourselves, but our first efforts would be not so great, and it would take a lot of time. Both to do and to develop some skill.
Well there is free hand embroidery, then there is the lace making,
beading, etc shown in the Singer book. Which by the way am gob smacked
by how much this book goes for, one just closed on eBay for over 70 USD,
with another going for high fifties. Am wondering if anyone actually
completes any or all of the lessons, or just has the book on their
coffee table for show.
Yes, will agree that like most anything else, if one sat down and put
one's mind and heart into it, even the free hand embroidery/lace making
shown in the Singer book could be done, in fact one would imagine with
today's computer driven machines it would be a tad easier.
One of my copies is the reprint, and both of them are mainly for drooling over.
