Crocheted Bedspreads and Tablecloths from 1964

From 1964, this Coats and Clark's thread crochet book features patterns for bedspread and tablecloth squares, as well as instructions for circular tablecloths crocheted in the round.

  1. Where did you find these books? Can you believe the prices? A real time capsule, and the designs are timeless, still pretty.

  2. I found this particular book at a church rummage sale, and you can also find them at estate sales, garage sales, and flea markets. Thrift stores also have vintage books but usually nothing older than the 1970's. Glad you enjoyed the photos!
