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, sewing and home decorating.  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;

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 very good overall condition.  Interior pages show some light age related darkening at edges, but are otherwise very nice and free of tears, etc.  Staples remain intact and secure.  Spine is quite tight.  Cover is showing some very light wear to spine edges.  Also a few additional very small surface and 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; a full color page of Christmas gifts, including slippers, gloves, scarves, coin purses,etc., complete with directions for making all items, a Paragon Blue Colonial Needlecraft quilt, vegetable people embroidered kitchen towels and some really cute cowboy outfits for the whole family.
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.
