Amy Barickman's Vintage Notions: An Inspirational Guide to Needlework, Cooking, Sewing, Fashion, and Funby Amy Barickman
Amy Barickman's Vintage Notions is a charming, joyful book. Barickman takes a look back to the homemakers of the 1920s and '30s to inspire today's hardworking DIYer. I enjoyed this more for creative encouragement than hands-on guidance for crafting and cooking. Though, the recipes for cranberry salad (think Jell-o) and raisin sticks (think chocolate) sound fun, and now I really want to make some aprons!
Synopses & Reviews
The home arts are back. Americans may be buying less these days, but they're investing more than ever in life at home. Cooking, sewing, knitting and fashion-design, as well as crafting, gardening, recycling/refashioning and home improvement, are exploding as evidenced by Lifetime TV's Project Runway, the D.I.Y. network and the fast-growing Etsy website. At the forefront of this trend is domestic arts industry leader Amy Barickman. Amy wrote Vintage Notions to inspire readers to parlay their hobbies into a lifestyle that promises personal reward, stronger family ties, financial potential and the sense of fulfillment that comes from making something special with your own two hands. Vintage Notions is a book filled with creative ideas, practical advice and charming anecdotes that celebrate the domestic arts. Whether it's cooking, sewing, gardening or recycling, home arts enthusiasts will appreciate this book's inventive ideas.
