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

Needlework Illustrated No. 205
Undated but believed to date from c. 1950-51
Includes the free embroidery transfer shown on the cover

A bi-monthly needlecraft magazine published in the UK (London)
Dimensions: approx. 6.75" x 9" (17cm x 23cm)

Softback magazine - 28 pages (including cover) - cover and two of the centre pages in colour - remaining pages in black and white
Includes the usual array of knitting and sewing projects. Knitting patterns include the ladies' button-through jumper featured on the cover, a ladies' mohair sweater/jumper and knitted dressing table mats. There are instructions for a crocheted bedcover (see photos) and suggestions for the use of the free embroidery transfer - as well as a wealth of period advertisements

It is unusal for the free embroidery transfer to have survived with the magazine. 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. The staples have rusted but are still holding secure. There is some rust transference to the pages - and to the centre of the embroidery transfer in particular, where it has been folded in half and stored alongside the staples. Some moderate creasing and age discolouration. But otherwise good. No major flaws

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
