NOTE: ALL COVER IMAGES THIS PAGE ARE PROPERTY OF
PUBLISHER, but scanned from my private collection.

SUMMARY: This magazine is being reviewed and cataloged both for its doll/toy patterns and its tatting patterns. It was printed on really cheap newsprint, and they used a glue to affix their address labels to the front cover designed to withstand the apocalypse. I finally held my breath and set a wet sponge the size of the label on top of each label to soak them off - and that got up the paper if not the glue(and yes, I tried my heat gun first - this glue does NOT soften). I do my best to put up nice scans of the covers so you'll know what issue covers to look for if you're searching for specific issues, but a lot of my copies are pretty pounded, if intact, and some of the mailing labels got torn off before I received them, so scan quality is particularly uneven on this reference page... Despite the (really)low production values and uneven pattern quality, there are some really wonderful patterns captured in this magazine. A lot of the early crochet and knit patterns are reprints from other older women's magazines. Sometimes they tell you where it came from, but usually not. The real treasures here are Myrtle M. Hamilton's tatting article(Aug. 1968-Jul/Aug. 1974) and Jen Kost's fantastic cloth doll article(Mar/Apr.1973-Jan/Feb.1976, (solo pattern)Jan/Feb.1977).

The Needles and Pins Sewing Club acted as on-line chat groups do now and is fun to read as people ask for patterns to swap, share their experiences and suggestions and, well, chat publicly with each other - without the flaming.

Tower Press was extremely prolific in the craft magazine market and printed other gems like "Aunt Jane's Sewing Circle", "Olde Time Needlework" and "Popular Needlework". There are others, but these were the three that came to mind as I was typing this.

There's a great knitting feature that ran for years called "Knitty Gritty" that has nothing to do with Vickie Howell's famous(to knitter's) TV program on DIY(and predates it). There are also tons of projects from the extremely prolific and popular Jean Sherf.

I'm going to go ahead and give complete Table of Contents listings for all the issues I own(I'm still missing a few of the Christmas issues, and I have no idea when they stopped publishing...). I've listed what Christmas issues I have at the end of the listings because it left a lot of awkward space to put a seventh issue with the year it was published - sorry. They did other special issues - one in particular of dolls - and I'll be listing those that I have as well with the Christmas issues under the category "Special Issues." If you have back issues I'm missing and are interested in parting with them, or have other information tidbits about this publication of interest, please contact me!

Finally, you'll see a set of parentheses at the end of each entry with a letter in it. Since this was a general purpose craft magazine for most sewing disciplines, I've marked each so that you know if it is (A)pplique, (C)rochet, (E)mbroidery, (K)nit, (M)iscellaneous, (S)ewing, or (tatting)atting pattern.

And yes, I even gave you the names of the recipes, because I regretted not photocopying the recipes out of my Workbaskets when I was going through them, so now I'm going to have to go through them all again(and there are hundreds!) in order to find the pickled watermelon rind recipe... And I try to learn from my mistakes. It cost me little time, and who knows who else may be looking for a specific recipe - or anything else - out of one of these magazines. It cost me nothing but time and a moderate amount of cussing.



PS- I just finished typing in the last issue I had on hand and kept track of the hours it took to complete this page - 86 hours just to set up the page and type in all the tables of contents(ie- time has not been included for scanning all the covers, cropping, resizing and uploading them yet). Now you know why there was cussing involved. :)
