I can’t knit today (I strained my left hand knitting too much yesterday afternoon and I can barely make a fist – and yes I will stop typing after this blog) so today’s a reading day. And lo and behold, what a find! Stuck between a bunch of old Norwegian ladies magazines filled with articles on food and knitting I found an old (old) German booklet: “Spezialartikel zum Sticken, Nähen, Stricken, Häkeln und überhaupt zu allen weiblichen Handarbeiten bestimmt und aus folgendem Material hergestellt: Baumwolle, Leinen und Seide.”
This booklet was from Dollfus-Mieg & Cie and was published in France. So who’s or what’s Dollfus-Mieg & Cie? Most of us know it as DMC! Underneath the firm’s name is “Société anonyme” under which reads “Mulhouse-Belfort-Paris” under which reads “erzeugt und verkauft unter der Marke.” At the top of each subsequent page reads “Merk Stich – III. Serie.”
I have all of the pages save for the cover page. The glue binding the pages seems to have long since dissolved.
I scanned it in to share with anyone interested. Here it is!
