NEW BOOK: Ladies, First: Common Threads, By Debra Scala Giokas

Written by Debra Scala Giokas, LADIES, FIRST celebrates 18 first ladies, who, at one point in their lives, knitted, crocheted, embroidered, quilted, cross-stitched or sewed. Their inspirational stories will encourage an appreciation of craft and creativity, patience and perseverance, sacrifice and service, and most of all, the role of the first lady in the history of the United States of America.

This unique look at 18 first ladies, from Martha Washington to Abigail Adams to Ida McKinley to Helen Taft to Edith Wilson to Barbara Bush, will help readers touch history with a museum-like experience. Each inspiring story gives a glimpse into the minds and hearts of these historic women, threaded together by actual images of various needlework, as well as fascinating photos. Learn about these first ladies’ lives, challenges and accomplishments and become inspired to create and make the world a better place, too.
