`Craft joy` is the title of a book by Everlasting, a yarn company in the Netherlands. The company organised a contest for women. A selection of the patterns by women from all over the Netherlands was published in this book. The book was published in the 1930s. It has beautiful full colour pictures. In the book are patterns for babies and children, women, and interior decoration, for example a carpet and a bed throw. Two pictures are really special: on the beach and in the bath room. Children and women all wear knitted or crocheted clothing. Even the bath mat and the beach towel are knitted. An additional picture, with all the craft pieces, is on another page.
