Antique-Crochet.com Site Update: October 1899 Home Needlework Magazine

Front Cover of the October 1899 Home Needlework Magazine Color Plate Featuring a Rose Embroidery Design From the October 1899 Home Needlework Magazine Antique Embroidered Decore Crochet Centerpiece from Home Needlework Magazine's October 1899 Issue

This ebay auction for a lot of 3 Home Needlework Magazines reminded me that I wanted to share the contents of the October 1899 issue (which is one of the issues being auctioned in that ebay lot.) If you’re in a buying mood, take a look at the auction, because it seems like a fantastic lot. I have no idea what the contents of the other 2 issues are, but just based on the contents of the October 1899 issue, it looks to me like a worthwhile purchase.The October 1899 issue is particularly amazing because it has 9 color plates. There aren’t all that many crochet patterns, but the few present are great.
