Sewing Tablet No. 2. A New and Practical Course of Graded Sewing Texts for Public and Private Schools.

St. Paul: Webb Publishing Co., 1911. Fourth edition. This is number two in a series. All editions and all numbers in the series are rare, with only a few copies of numbers one, two, and three recorded in OCLC, and no copies of any other numbers. None of the copies recorded in OCLC are first editions. OCLC records two physical copies of number two in the series (a third edition and a fourth edition). With forty-four text figures and eight fabric samples laid in (five with an accompanying thread sample and needle each, two with just thread samples). Also with a large fold-out paper bodice pattern and a small brown paper envelope containing two buttons. Remarkably complete, as sewing instruction kits like this are rarely found with the original fabric, needles, thread, and buttons. Foxing to first and last page. Otherwise, a very clean copy, near-fine with the original brown stiff card envelope. Light brown paper front cover stapled to stiff board backing at top edge. Text in black and a red-and-black vignette. 7 in. x 10 in. . 38 pp. Item #17322

Instructs students in both basic and complex stitches; sewing hems, seams, and buttonholes; attaching buttons; and sewing cuffs, sleeves, ties, collars, bodices, and petticoats.

Margaret Josephine Blair (b. 1863) was installed as head of the Domestic Arts at the University of Minnesota by Virginia Meredith in 1897. She also wrote Manual of Exercises in Hand Sewing, Adopted by Industrial and Grade Schools (1904) and the very successful Margaret J. Blair’s System of Sewing and Garment Drafting (also 1904).
