About Weldon's Practical Needlework

From Interweave Press:

About 1885, Weldon’s began publishing a series of fourteen-page monthly newsletters, available by subscription, each title featuring patterns and instructions for projects using a single technique.

About 1888, the company began to publish Weldon’s Practical Needlework, each volume of which consisted of twelve issues (one year) of several newsletters bound together with a cloth cover.

Each volume contains hundreds of projects, illustrations, information on little-known techniques, glimpses of fashion as it was at the turn of the twentieth century, and brief histories of needlework. Other techniques treated include making objects from crinkled paper, tatting, netting, beading, patchwork, crewelwork, appliqué, cross-stitch, canvaswork, ivory embroidery, torchon lace, and much more.

From 1999 through 2005, Interweave published facsimiles of the first twelve volumes of Weldon’s Practical Needlework.

Gent's Knickerbocker Hose in Blantyre Plaid pattern available again!

Thanks Shirley!  She provided us with a much more printer-friendly sized file and you should be able to download it with no problem.

The free pdf for this cool pair of knee socks is now available!

I've hopefully fixed the problem with the charts printing as a GIANT set of pages.  I've tried printing them and they work fine (for me), please let me know if you still have problems printing.
