Hi, all,

I'm having trouble finding any books about crafts you can do with fur (i.e. making clothes, hats, mittens, beaver hoops, stuff like that). I dimly remember a book about sewing with leather and fur that I checked out from the library when I was a kid, but I can't remember the title. I'm not looking to buy any books just yet since I can just get them for free through interlibrary loan and see if I like them before I buy them, but I need titles and authors. Can anyone recommend anything?

Thank you!

-Kris

Eskimo Skin sewing is a decent book.
https://www.amazon.com/Secrets-Eskimo-Skin-Sewing-Wilder/dp/1889963127/ref=asc_df_1889963127/?tag=hyprod-20&linkCode=df0&hvadid=316783146717&hvpos=&hvnetw=g&hvrand=5260560862974709795&hvpone=&hvptwo=&hvqmt=&hvdev=c&hvdvcmdl=&hvlocint=&hvlocphy=9006301&hvtargid=aud-799146894166:pla-494338674383&psc=1

I suggest "Secret of Eskimo skin sewing" by Edna Wilder.

ABE rocks! I buy most of my books there. I just bought a hard cover, first edition of "Firearms, Traps, and Tools of the Mountain Men" by Carl P. Russell in very good condition for less than a third of what most Amazon sellers were asking.

In fact, I've seen the same copy of a book listed by the same bookstore on both Amazon and ABE and the price is always much less on ABE.


Eh...wot?
