The Mary Frances Sewing Book or Adventures Among the Thimble People teaches girls how to sew, while also telling the story of Mary Frances's new friends, the Thimble People. Mary Frances says if any little girl who really wishes to learn to sew will follow the lessons exactly as given, she can hardly fail. The book contains 33 patterns and instructions for 46 projects. Some patterns are in the text, and ten fold out with pattern duplicated on tissue.
The Thimble People helped her spend a delightful summer vacation at her grandmother's. She met Sewing bird, who was a real Fairy Lady, and the other Thimble People. They taught her a lot of fascinating secrets, finally took her on a long journey to Thimble Land, and brought her back safely, after the most marvelous advantures. Several pages have a color illustration on glossy paper that go with the story.
