Title: Piecework Magazine Presents a Facsimile Edition of Weldon's Practical Needlework, Vol. 4

SUMMARY- This volume is a reprint of twelve(12) issues of Weldon's Practical Needlework, a British magazine that began around 1885 and ran monthly issues until about 1915. Each issue was fourteen pages, and each issue tended to focus on one discipline(so you had Weldon's Practical Crochet, Weldon's Practical Cross-stitch, Weldon's Practical Patchwork, etc.). Around 1888, they began binding a year's worth of issues into book form. This is a republication of Volume 4, with no corrections to the patterns. It is an interesting artifact, and nicely bound by Interweave Press, who also give us the beautifully done current magazine called "Piecework." This won't have much interest for the beginner, but would be of some interest to anyone studying the evolution of tatting since the early 1800's. There is a lot packed into Weldon's pages as you can probably see by the Table of Contents.

SPECIAL NOTE: I did not list all the Mountmellick stitches that were presented individually. If you actually need this list, you may contact me. I'll grumble, but pull the book off its shelf and make that list for you. Otherwise, I'm going to move on to cataloging more magazines.
