“Silk Stocking Mats” by Paula Laverty

Paula Laverty’s book has become the “bible” of Grenfell Hooked Mats and other crafts of the Grenfell Mission. The first part of the book explains the  history of Dr. Grenfell’s Medical Mission and how he started a “cottage industry” to help the fisherman’s wives feel better about themselves by giving them something to do to earn money. The rest of the book pictures the mats and crafts with detailed explanations.

This book is a wonderful addition to begin a “new” collection, an established collection or just a wonderful story about a fabulous man and his desire to better the human condition.
