The inspiration for the projects and articles in this issue are stitched together from contemporary and classic literature, the pages of early nineteenth- and twentieth-century needlework periodicals, and the fibre-loving heroines of Greek mythology.
Also included in this issue:
- Stitch a Belgian needle-lace heart inspired by a Nancy Drew novel.
- Ward off winter’s chill with a knitted fichu similar to the ones worn by the beloved Jo, Beth, Meg, Amy, and Marmee in Little Women.
- Learn about the history of some of the most popular needlework magazines from the past two centuries, including Fancy Needlework Illustrated, Modern Pricilla, and Needlecraft.
