NOTES: Under "A Worthy Cause" on the editor's page, she sings the praises of the American Anti-Vivisection Society. So I thought, "Huh." and went on-line to see who was being seriously threatened with vivisection(being surgically cut apart while alive!) in the mid-30's. Turns out they're an animal advocacy group against the abuse of research animals...

COVER: (Ralph Pallen Coleman)
NOTES: This is the first cover done by Mr Coleman for "Needlecraft". His sense of humor for his subject is undeniable - you can immediately pick his paintings out of any line-up. While I miss the gorgeous framed covers of the '20's, I find Mr Coleman's humor makes up for it completely. There is an interesting Wikipedia article on him at https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ralph_Pallen_Coleman

COVER: "Sunday Chores"(Ralph Pallen Coleman)
