Item details


14 Pages contain 12 different designs ranging from patterns for tea-cloths, narrow edgings, and laces with corners as shown on the cover.

The booklet is in good condition. The staples are rusty and the front cover has writing (in pencil). No severe tears, but corners are dog-eared. Please take the time to check out the pictures for condition issues.

If you are looking for a unique gift for a crocheter that isn't a reproduction of an old publication, but is an original, this may be what you are looking for.

A bit about Weldon's according to an article in Piecework, May/June 2009:
"...In an effort to bring needlework to a then-emerging middle class, several London companies in the last decades of the nineteenth century began publishing needlework patterns and instructions. Unlike other women’s magazines of the time, which ran one or two needlework projects in an issue otherwise filled with fiction, recipes, housekeeping hints, and so forth, these new publications were devoted solely to needlework.
...Weldon’s began as a paper pattern company, and it went on to become one of the most recognized needlework publishers in England.
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. They included Weldon’s Practical Knitter, Weldon’s Practical Crochet, Weldon’s Practical Macramé Lace, and so on. By about 1915, Weldon’s had published 159 issues of Practical Crochet...."

I do my best to ship it fast! Other than weekends, I generally ship the next day. If for some reason, I am unable to ship it immediately, I will contact the buyer directly. All items will be sent via USPS First Class or USPS First Class International. Any postage overcharge of $1.00 or more will automatically be refunded to you.

For Canadian buyers:
There is the possibility of delayed shipments to, from, and within Canada beginning on July 2 as a result of a service disruption caused by an ongoing labor dispute at Canada Post. The disruption will affect all shipments that are handled by Canada Post. This includes shipments into Canada from other national carriers like USPS and Royal Mail. Due to this, I can not ensure delivery on shipments sent out past July 2nd. Hopefully, this will be resolved soon.
