Sewing in the 70’s

Yesterday while looking for tax info, I was digging through boxes and came across this little booklet.


I don’t have a clue where I got this but there are some newspaper clippings dated June 6, 1971 tucked inside. Amazing — June 6, 1971 was my 17th birthday! So, this little book brought back all kinds of memories. I was sewing a lot back then and I would have loved this booklet.  The clippings came from the Louisville Courier-Journal & Times so I’m guessing this is something I picked up while living in Kentucky.


I know the color wheel has been around forever but I think it’s interesting that they included a section on color.


Wonder what other treasures I could find if I unpacked some of these boxes!
