Vintage original 50s 1950s knitting / sewing / embroidery magazine - original patterns

Stitchcraft Magazine September 1953
A monthly knitting/needlecraft magazine published in the UK (London)
Dimensions: approx. 7.25" x 9.75" (18.5cm x 25cm)

Softback magazine - 32 pages (including cover) - cover in colour - internal pages in black and white
Includes the usual array of knitting and sewing projects. Knitting patterns include several ladies' garments (sweaters / jumpers, including the pretty beaded sweater pictured here - a cardigan and a twin set), a baby's layette and a man's polo neck sweater / jumper (modelled by Roger Moore, in his pre-acting days!). Unusually, the free embroidery transfer (floral design - see photos) has survived. However, please note that most of the other sewing/embroidery projects required transfers that are not included and which had to be purchased separately (though the magazine can still serve as inspiration and in many cases, the designs could be replicated relatively easily without the use of a transfer)

In good condition. Some general creasing and age discolouration only. Also some rubbing to the spine. The binding is tight - apart from a small split at the top. No stains, major tears or annotations

Any questions (e.g. re. sizings or needle sizes for knitwear), please feel free to ask

I offer a combined shipping discount - please refer to 'Shop Policies' for details
Shipping charges are usually estimated (particularly for combined shipping). If I find that I have grossly overestimated the shipping costs (after allowing a small amount for packaging) I will, of course, refund the difference
