The Vintage Shetland Project
Our remaining stock crossed the Atlantic under a bit of duress; these copies have a slightly dented corner on the cover, so we’re offering them at the special price of $69. The pages are all crisp and fine.
It is an honor to carry this long-awaited book, The Vintage Shetland Project. Susan Crawford worked on this epic project for years, painstakingly creating modern knitting patterns for Shetland knitwear from the first half of the twentieth century. She did this by examining archival garments inside and out, stitch by stitch, in effect reverse-engineering them. With the same care, she researched the stories of the makers and wearers of the garments. It’s social history through handmade clothing.
You will want to spend hours and hours with this book. It’s fascinating, deep and moving. The photographs are perfection, and the patterns are a testament to Susan Crawford’s skill, persistence, and imagination. The Vintage Shetland Project is a tour de force that belongs on our shelves forever.
