Did a quick check of the knitting books at Barnes and Nobles last night and saw this for the first time.

It's a charming book for girls (big and little . It tells the story of Mary Frances learning ot knit and crochet and provides patterns for the items she makes her dolls.

Looking at the B&N link, there is a series of Mary Frances books. I'll have to look for the sewing book...

Did you buy this? I've been seeing this in catalogues, but have never seen it in person. Sometimes a sweet illustration is shown, from the sewing book I believe, showing the young lady how to sit properly while doing her stitches...it looks very sweet.

Sounds like a great book! I may stop by Barnes and Noble tonight and see a copy in person.

I have the Mary Frances sewing book and it is very sweet, has lovely illustrations and comes with a bunch of patterns for doll clothes. My DD#1 likes it already but is a little young to learn to sew yet, I think (She's 6 now but super wiggly and I don't trust her with a sharp needle!) I have the knitting book on my wish list, too...let us know if you get it!
