Description:
Needlewoman and Needlecraft was an amalgamation of two other magazines: Needlecraft, (first produced 1907), and The Needlewoman, (first produced 1919). It was a quarterly magazine, and the first issue was published in January 1940. A few issues may have been missed during WWII, hence this issue is number "58".
In the 1970s it dropped the Needlecraft name, and became simply "Needlewoman"; then during 1977 it was incorporated with Stitchcraft monthly magazine. Because of this the numbering systems can appear confusing, with 1970s editions appearing to predate those of the 1930s - however the content usually makes the era unmistakeable.
