This McCall magazine features a large quantity of information, examples, patterns, directions  and projects encompassing a wide variety of  needlework, hand work, needlepoint, crochet, knitting, embroidery, applique, quilting and sewing. In addition to numerous articles regarding the needlework referenced above, from hats, gloves, rugs, purses, and handbags, to children's items, the contents page also lists many other interesting features and projects, a few of which follow;

*  Animals & Dolls

*  Appliquéd Quilts

*  Wall Hangings

The magazine includes quite a number of interesting color illustrations and advertisements, as well as plentiful similar black and white.

It is complete and intact, with no missing pages and is in good overall condition.  Interior pages show some age related darkening at edges, with some creased corners.  Staples remain intact and secure.  Spine is quite tight.  Cover is showing some wear and tear to spine edges; most significant to apx 1/2 inch at top and apx. 2 inches to lower, where front and back cover are torn slightly.  Also a few additional small edge mars to front and back cover.

A very interesting, informative, colorful magazine, full of fun craft and hobby projects. Advertisements and articles show great examples of period fashions and products.

A few of my favorite features;  colorful vegetable people embroidered on kitchen towels, lace tablecloths and placemats, as well as several examples of lovely quilts, including Dresden Plate, Turkey Tracks & Basket of Flowers.

An interesting footnote;  this magazine, although issued in the winter of 1945-46, was apparently printed well in advance, as there is a reference in the Do You Know Section stating that:  after the war wool fabric for overcoats will be combined with nylon to extend garment life.   Although the exact date of the end of World War II is somewhat debatable, mid August to early September is commonly acknowledged as accurate.  Subsequently, the war was already ended before this magazine was distributed, however it was apparently to late at that point to make to appropriate correction.

PLEASE NOTE:  We also have three other early needlework magazines listed in this category and we have priced them so if all are purchased at one time they can be shipped together in our least expensive shipping group.
