Star Needlework Journal was published by the American Thread Company. This publication featured needlework patterns and projects for knitting, crocheting, tatting, embroidery, lace making, etc. Many issues included embroidery transfers that were found stapled into the centerfold of the magazine. (Nowadays, it’s a real treat to find issues where the transfers survived intact; more often than not, the transfers have been removed from the issues I’ve come across.) The magazine also occasionally featured photographs of items that you had to mail order. In my descriptions, I do my best to specify which patterns are included vs. which patterns you had to send away for.
Here is a listing of issues that have been part of my collection. You can click on any of these links to view more detailed photos and a listing of projects and patterns found in that particular issue.
