Looking for two needlework books...
 
The second one was probably "The Subversive Stitch" by Roszika Parker.
Try here -

103-8341894-1618225?v=glance&s=books&n=507846

Cut and paste the url so it's all one line in your web browser. It's a
great book!

The second book is also from the 70s-80s and I believe the author and
publisher were British. The publisher had a neat name like "Steam On"
or "Iron Will Press". I cannot remember the title for the life of me.
It was a history of needlework as related to feminism. It was a white
paperback with a older seeming picture of a woman sewing. It had a
picture section that featured modern embroidery - I can recall a field
of women's symbols.

Do either of these sound familiar to anyone? TIA!

Christine

Hi Pat,

Thanks!!!! That's it exactly! And it's still in the local library
system. Awesome job, you should be working there :-) It is a great
book, that's why I was looking for it for a friend.

Best,
Christine
