Tatting and needlework patterns from the April 1917 issue of The Modern Priscilla

Tatting and needlework patterns from the April 1917 issue of The Modern Priscilla
This entry is part 6 of 7 in the series The Modern Priscilla - April 1917

I scanned thru the needle work section of the April 1917 issue of The Modern Priscilla, which had patterns and advice on making doilies, tatted edges on linens, crochet patterns, small hand sewn gifts for the bride, and other needlework ideas. I’ve scanned several of these twice, because my scanner bed wasn’t big enough to include the ads in one scan. I don’t recognize most of the brands advertised, but the Campbell’s Vegetable Soup advertisement is classic.

Professional WordPress nerd. Lover of all things older than me. I am fascinated by early 1900s labor and feminist history, and have a sporadic addiction to reading nonfiction about those things on Archive.org. I scan old photographs and ephemera when I get really super bored. On Etsy I sell vintage clothing that I got as part of an interesting trade deal a few years ago.
