AS&E Issues

Australian Smocking and Embroidery (AS&E) was an Australian magazine published 4 times per year, with about 8-10 smocking patterns.  The patterns were usually lovely, but the very best part was that each design included the pattern for the dress in a limited size run.  I only began purchasing them when my oldest was a baby, so I only have the past 5 years worth of issues, in addition to a small handful sent by a lovely fan of the index.

    Hiya, Love your index, most useful! Well done for such hard work. I have a selection of older issues of AS&E between Issue 26 and 56 (double of some, all with patterns and in good condition) I shall be coming over to US (fom Australia)visiting family in Colorado in October for 2 weeks. If you are interested in some of these issues let me know before Oct 7th. All I ask is postage in US to be covered and a small donation to our smocking group Wee Care project.

      Wow, that is so generous! Thank you so much. I am very much interested. Would you like a monetary donation to your Wee Care project, or for me to make a few gowns?
