While I was in Hudson Bay teaching beadwork, there was a fleamarket across the road that I visited on Saturday. 🙂 I found a box of McCall Needlework magazines for $10. I’ll go through them and share some interesting pages with you.
Starting at the earliest: McCall Needlework Fall-Winter 1950-51
I took several snaps of the inside and uploaded them to Flickr in the Vintage Magazines set.
There are a few great advertisements, and lots of interesting patterns I would like to have had. It seems like the magazine is full of teasers, and you have to order the leaflets in order to get the patterns you wanted. 😦 boo!! So these magazines are seeming to be a giant catalogue, with yarn ads, and ads on how to make money at home glueing rhinestones to jewelry blanks.
I, however, bought a magazine recently that I am very excited about!
Anyways, home again. I’ll be busy putting in the garden this week!
I also hope to get a dreamcatcher or two finished and list them in the shop! 🙂 I really liked making them! I hope that others wanting to own a dreamcatcher to help them dream happier dreams will consider mine.
