Bob-In-Board, Weaving Tool from Prudential Products
Clipped from a 1955 issue of McCalls Needlecraft is this craft tool --- Called a BOB-IN-BOARD. Apparently it's primary use is in weaving. "You can make a collar (in one hour), cuffs, also braid, stoles, fringes, trims, lace corners and yardage".
To receive your kit and patterns, for the very low price of $6.50 (which wasn't that low for 1955), mail off the offer to Prudential Products in Upper Derby, PA.
Now, I'm making an educated guess that this particular product was not a hit. How's that, well an internet found nothing .... absolutely nothing.
But, with the post, there is now something. And perhaps, I'll find more. If I do, I'll be sure to come back and update this reference.
Should you know anything about the Bob-In-Board, please add a comment.
