Needlecraft-Aug 1924

You have probaly noticed, Needlecraft is one of my favorite vintage magazines. I can't resist if I find one in an antique shop. This is one of my newest.
Not the most colorful of covers.
 This issue has lots of crochet patterns.
"Gretchen Frocks-a complete dress for four subscriptions. Stamped on linine with floss to embroider."
More gifts to readers for recruiting new readers.
 Apron Sighting! Isn't the illistration darling?
"This beautiful tea-pron is made entirely of a fine grade rose-colored rubber witha dainty crisp rubber ruffle of the same color." Don't you love it!!

 The latest fashions. What ladies magazine is complete without a page or two of fashion!

And a bright ad to end it all off.


  1. I will have to keep an eye out for Needlecraft magazines! I have been a fan of The Work Basket over the years. I love the vintage adds, and patterns.

    1. Yes, I have seen a lot Work Baskets. I don't remember seeing any as old as Needlecraft. DO you know when it was first published?

  2. I am obsessed with this magazine! lol

  3. Oh my word, needle craft magazines are wonderful. I have made it a point to learn how to needle point, crochet, and knit. I just haven't quite mastered them. Maybe during the Winter Season I can focus on advancing on my craft studies. :)


    1. Winter is always a good time to cozy in and do a little creating. I hope you will be able to.
