Submitter: Page after page of hand drawn patterns. In our age of Pinterest, this book is a joke. I am especially horrified by the “Dishcloth Suit” illustrations. No idea why one of our staff looked at this and thought it should go back on the shelf. I’m sure there’s a place for books like this but our popular sewing section is not that place.
Holly: It’s cute, and that’s fine if you’ve got the space in your library. If you’re making hard choices for space concerns, cute doesn’t cut it. I don’t know the first thing about sewing; is this practical or is it supposed to be more inspirational?
