Those books I got at the estate sale

Posted by minnie_tx (My Page) on

These are some of the leaflets that were in the box that I got at that estate sale last week plus 44 other Leisure Arts leaflets
I copied these descriptions from the LA website. The other 44 aren't mentioned on the site anymore so they must be out of print. The $ amt is what they sold for I guess

If anyone wants any just for the postage let me know.
and let me know if there is a LA leaflet/booklet you are missing or looking for.
I haven't gotten around to listing the box of old McCalls Needlecraft mags (the old style large size)

RE: Those books I got at the estate sale

Minnie are there any for "beginners"? Like still kindergarten level?

RE: Those books I got at the estate sale

I'll look most are kind of for beginers crochet? plastic canvas? knitting?

RE: Those books I got at the estate sale

Crochet is all I can do Minnie.
Thanks for looking.

RE: Those books I got at the estate sale

How nice of you, Minnie. I have that last one, Make One for Baby. It has some really nice patterns for afghans in it. I've made 2-3 from the book.

RE: Those books I got at the estate sale

Minnie, are there any more of the leaflets that you are willing to part with, I have most of the ones you listed, and am not interested in the McCalls Needlework magazines.
I love the old stuff, and if you are willing to part with some of it, would appreciate your letting me know?

RE: Those books I got at the estate sale

Shaddy there are 44 other ones but it will tzake me forever to list them the ones I listed are on the Leisure arts website but the others aren't I'll try over the weekend. I really don't want any of them.

RE: just the numbers

Maybe I'll list the numbers and you can check to see if you have some of them then I'll list the others

RE: Those books I got at the estate sale

This is great and a time consuming task. Perhaps to make it easier for you, why need just group them into afghans/baby/holiday/assorted or whatever and then see what the postage would be to ship 5 or 6. Then, offer them as "bundles" to people and let them be surprised. Just a suggestion to make your life easier.

RE: Those books I got at the estate sale

I agree w/Susan idea or you can email me for a couple other suggestions.

RE: Those books I got at the estate sale

Are these knit or crochet patterns?

RE: Those books I got at the estate sale

I am teaching a knitting class here in Southern California. Do you still have the McCalls Knitting Magazines?
