I just wanted to let you know the books arrived in perfect condition (and
quickly too, I might add). You have done a beautiful job of restoring these
old patterns. It is so wonderful to see someone preserving our "heritage."
Sadly, so many of the old patterns have been discarded to never be seen
again. Thank you so much and I can see there will some burning of the
midnight oil as I know I will not be able to put these down once I get my
nose into them. I look forward to further dealings with you in the future.
Once again, thanks for the GREAT service.

This is an incredible website! The best selection, fantastic quality in the reproductions, everything is reasonably priced and lightening fast shipping. An absolute do-not-miss for anyone interested in
vintage needle arts. Highly, highly recommended!!!

"I just wanted to let you know I received my order today and I was very impressed with the quality of the reproduction!  I recently had the misfortune of ordering some of these same types of books on eBay (specifically I had ordered one book you do offer "Royal Society Crochet Book #21 - Lamp Shades & Medallions Circa 1922") and that eBay seller produced very poor quality copies and some of the material is actually missing.  Thanks so much for putting out a great reproduction; I only wish I had found you first."

"I received my book today and I had to write and thank you! I am so pleased with this high quality copy. I spend much of my spare time searching through antiquarian bookshops for old books and magazines with knitting patterns in but I am a convert to your website now. It is so wonderful to have a period pattern on quality paper with a secure binding so I don't have to worry about splitting the spine of the book. I have to thank you too for providing this service and giving so much of your time to the preservation of these delightful patterns. I am already planning my next order!"

"I just wanted to let you know my box arrived today and everything looks great!  I especially appreciate the secure packing job - I always worry a little about books coming here (to Montana) in the winter, just because we have so much snow, but everything is fine, and your packing job was watertight, even if the snow or other elements had been a problem, which they have never really been.  Thank you so much for sending the extra books, as well.  You have totally made my day.  Your work is of high quality, and you have every right to say so and take pride in this!  I love that the patterns are readable, enlarged, and bound so well. Now I just need to sit down and find the time to read and enjoy the patterns and knit and crochet. Rough life for me!"

Loretta Reichert


"I probably don't fit the expected customer profile for Iva Rose's main market--I'm a man, and I neither knit nor crochet! But I know quality and committment when I see them, and Peggy April has invested immense amounts of love and labor to revive these wonderful books. Even if you don't knit, these books offer much to beguile and inform students of the period. The marginal illustrations and covers are frequently small masterpieces, full of the "feel" and charm of their era. The social historian will have a field day with these books...and might end up with a cozy afghan or sweater-coat into the bargain! Highly, highly recommended!"

"Just received my book and it is INCREDIBLE!!!  You have done a  fabulous job.  I can't wait to see what else you have in store.  Will  recommend you to my friends."

"Sorry it took me so long to write you, the package arrived a while ago and I am so thrilled! You do an amazing job on these reproductions, they are gorgeous! Better than the originals!  I'm so happy with the pattern books, they are great fun to read and I plan to make several projects from them and use others for inspiration.  I'm sure that I'll order more in the future."
Ann V. in NYC
"Your carefully wrapped package arrived today, and time stood still and moved backwards while I opened the books and gazed on their pages. Truly a labor of love, as you so clearly state on your website.  Thank you so much for these treasures"
Diane in Colorado
"My book that I ordered from you arrived today.  I have to say that I'm very pleased with it and quite impressed with the work it must have taken to achieve such nice clean pages."
H. in UK


"I received the manuals on 2/22!  Can you believe it?  Incredibly fast!
They are GORGEOUS!  You have done a top-notch job preparing them - great quality paper, perfect copies, wonderful color covers.  A real treasure for anyone to add to their collections.  Thank you thank you thank you.  I'll be checking your website periodically for new additions."
Thanks so much-
