Scarce as hens teeth. :( I did a huge search for this a couple of months ago. Occasionally you'll see one on eBay, but the bidding is outrageous. But you can get the second book, More Elmore, from the NeedleCraft Cottage in Tennessee.

i've never heard of this ??? would you mind filling me in?
William (Bill) Elmore came up with some really innovative crochet techniques -- better ways of doing the stuff we do every day. Time-saving, yarn-saving stuff. I have More Elmore, but not the first one, The Elmore Method. The books were put out by Annie's Attic, but they're out of print now and are hard to find.

Thanks for the heads up, but I already bought that one from them a few months back. <img border=0 src="http://www.ezboard.com/images/emoticons/smile.gif" /> Now, I am on the hunt for the first one.

:rofl I hope I wasn't bidding against you, Pfirsch--was it in a lot of about 20 crochet and knitting books? If so, I may have driven up your price a bit--sorry! :eek2

 

Anyways, let me know if I should keep looking for a copy--I was intringued by the description--

Alibris dot com has The Elmore Method. Prices start at about $49.00. They may have the others as well, I just searched for that one.

Besides extended stitches, what else did Elmore invent? I've seen the first booklet, and i thought at the time that was about all that was in it---what did i miss?

I have both Elmore books. Each book has new stitches and new procedures for doing foundation rows plus both books have patterns. :hook

I am also looking for a copy of both of Elmores' books. I saw copies on Ebay but they are rather expensive.  Does anyone know of a place where I could find one or both? Thanks so much in advance.

I don't think there is anywhere to buy them for a cheap price, unless you find them at a yard sale or thrift store where the seller didn't know what they have.
