PUBLISHER, but scanned from my private collection.

SUMMARY: I'm a big fan of Needlecraft for Today's sister publication Needle & Thread, and this run appears to be more of the same. While Needle & Thread focused primarily on sewing projects, Needlecraft for Today deals primarily with yarn and thread handcrafts. You get a great variety of different disciplines in each issue, with at least one (and often many more) soft toy patterns that are creative and engaging. Some of the patterns really date, particularly clothing, but still a great resource. Layout is the same for both magazines, i.e.- color photos, patterns and instructions are in three different places so you have to do a lot of page flipping if you need to refer. Those patterns that are not full-size are at least gridded to aid in enlargement, and those pages are located in the center of the magazine so they can be pulled off the staples if needed. I'm not crazy about the layout or the difficult size of the magazine, but the projects are topnotch and worth the little bit of extra hassle. I've finally found the last issue I was missing, so there is a complete run listed here! As with N&T, you won't get cover images of the larger format issues until I can buy a bigger scanner. Sorry about that.

I've put the toys and dolls in bold print so that they stand out in the Tables of Content, and tried to put a description by the projects in parentheses so that you know what kind of pattern it is.

Anyone with more information about this publication can contact me through My Contact Page.
