Weldon’s Practical Needlework was a popular Victorian magazine of knit, crochet, patchwork, and other “useful articles” involving needlework. Published in England roughly between 1885 and 1915, it offered women of the burgeoning middle class a variety of technical instructions and projects.

A lavish boxed set, Weldon’s Practical Needlework: Deluxe Edition collects the first 6 volumes of the series, each volume comprised of 12 monthly issues. In addition to knit and crochet, the volumes contain a variety of decorative needlework: crewel, appliqué, cross-stitch, macramé, smocking, bead netting, and other lesser-known techniques. As both a historical document and a knitting curiosity, it offers a window to another time and place, covering fashion, domestic life, and the history of needlework.

 

You'll love this book if:

  • You are a lover of history and are looking for an inspirational resource on historical knitting and vintage patterns
  • You are a fan of PieceWork and Knitting Traditions magazines
  • You love hard copies of books, as they are becoming a rarity

This collection is a facsimile edition of the original Weldon’s Practical Guide to Needlework and will satifsy the historical curiosities of knitters, crocheters, and needleworkers!
