Among my recent finds are these two lovely Needlecraft magazines. I have picked up quite a few now and am very excited as these are my first ones from 1940! Right around this time they changed their name from just Needlecraft to Home Art Needlecraft.
Needlecraft has a bit of everything....... embroidery.........
Articles on homemaking....."Housework is lighter and easier since the amazing developments and advances in labor and time saving equipment and appliances. Electricity, gas, bottled gas, and kerosene are bringing undreamed comforts and conveniences to even the humblest of homes."
Don't you love the ladies in their aprons hard at work?
Crafts..... A Pretty How-To-Do......."a simple to make party bag"....
and of course Fashion!!
this issue includes cooking......
......a patriotic Apron!
"A gay little apron of deep blue is trimmed with red and white polka-dotted fabric and simply decorated with daisies done in heavy white pearl cotton - for the 4th!"
........And more fashion! Such cute blouses!
