Jenny Hart, proprietor of Sublime Stitching, likes to collect books about embroidery. In this recent essay on her blog, Jenny writes about Constance Howard, one of her favorite embroiderers. Jenny has long been a fan of Howard and her books, because Howard was ahead of her time when it came to artful embroidery, and also because Howard made a practice of dying her hair green with lithographer's ink in the 1930s. Jenny recently came across a cache of Howard's books and saw that they had all been autographed. Read Jenny's fun story of tracking down the original owner of the books here.
