Needlecraft magazine began publication in September 1909 and continued until World War II. The magazine was known for its line drawings showing various handwork patterns and its cover art. The editor, Margaret Barton Manning stated that the “publication is devoted exclusively to practical needlecraft for personal and household use.” With detailed instructions for crochet, knitting, embroidery, tatting, baby clothes, purses, garments, house linens and other handwork, the magazine was a household staple. The work of artists such as James Leslie Wallace and others greatly increased the magazine’s appeal and make them collectible today for their cover art and advertisements.
