Vintage 50s 1950s knitting / sewing / embroidery / crochet magazine

Needlework Illustrated No. 219 (undated but believed to date from 1953)
A bi-monthly needlecraft magazine published in the UK (London)
Dimensions: approx. 6.75" x 9" (17cm x 23cm)

Includes chart for cross-stitch picture featured on the cover

Softback magazine - 32 pages (including cover) - cover and centre pages in colour - remaining pages in black and white
Includes the usual array of knitting and sewing projects. Knitting patterns include the ladies' knitwear featured on the cover, a toy giraffe and a baby's matinee coat. Sewing projects include a baby's 'lampkin rattle' and various pieces of embroidered linen. There is also a cross-stitch picture and a crocheted tabelcloth (featured on the cover)
Unusually, the free cross-stitch chart has survived. However, please note that most of the other sewing/embroidery projects required transfers that are not included in the magazine, as they had to be purchased separately (though the magazine is still highly inspirational and, in many cases, the designs could be replicated relatively easily without the use of a transfer)
Instructions for the knitting and crochet projects are printed in the magazine

In good condition. There is some water damage/rippling along the top edge but this isn't instrusive. A little age discolouration to paper and a pencil annotation to cover. Otherwise very good. Binding is tight. Minimal creasing

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

Please note: this is a UK publication and adjustments may need to be made by international knitters/crocheters (e.g. crochet abbreviations, needle sizes)

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
