Updated to add: This blog post was originally written about an ebay auction that has now ended. Sorry if you missed out! However, there are plenty of Mary Card filet crochet charts, books and patterns to be found online. Please click here to see Mary Card crochet patterns here on our website. See also: Mary Card crochet pattern books.
If I find another one of these filet crochet charts I will be sure to post about it, so please make sure to take a look at my latest posts on the site to see if I have posted any current auction finds.
The final bid price of the auction was $36.99 and it was priced in Australian dollars. Ebay’s currency converter was showing an equivalent of $35.23 US at the time I checked, although the rate fluctuates depending on when you check it.

Here’s a fantastic ebay find for you! It’s a Mary Card giant filet crochet chart for the British coat of arms. These are wonderful to work from. Unfortunately, I don’t see these charts come up for sale often enough. The seller is located in Australia, but ships internationally. The auction ends on May 1, 2008.

Thanks for visiting antique-crochet.com!
I just created a new web page on the antique-crochet.com
site which is dedicated to the October 1933 Issue of Needlecraft Magazine.
This issue has lots of fantastic needlework and crochet patterns, including an exquisite crochet pattern (with chart!) by Mary Card. Mary Card’s patterns and charts are highly sought after by crochet enthusiasts and collectors, and you can easily see why when you look at this example of Mary Card’s work. If you want more details about the Mary Card pattern or about the magazine’s other contents, please do take a look at the page for Needlecraft October 1933.
One of the highlights of the December 1931 Issue of Needlecraft Magazine: The gorgeous filet crochet pattern for a chair set designed by Mary Card. It’s pictured above. I just updated the antique-crochet.com site with a new page dedicated to this issue of the magazine, including lots more pictures plus a list of projects that are included in that issue. So rather than elaborating further I will just refer you to the page for more details. Click here to see more photos and needlework patterns from the December 1931 Needlecraft Magazine!
Thanks for your interest. Hope you’ll enjoy the page!

I just found an ebay seller who is auctioning what looks like a fantastic lot of 8 Needlecraft magazines from 1931, and this issue is one of them. Looks like a fantastic auction. Here’s the link for you.
If you’d rather have just this issue, there are a couple of sellers who have listed single copies for sale in their ebay stores at a fixed price. Both of these sellers ship worldwide, to the best of my knowledge.

Edited on 3/24/08 to add: I just found an ebay seller who is offering an auction for 3 different Needlecraft magazine back issues, and this is one of the issues in the lot. I think it looks like a pretty good deal, so I thought I’d post and give y’all the “heads up”. Good luck if you decide to bid! This auction has ended.
I’ve just updated the Antique-crochet.com web site with a brand new page about the February 1918 issue of Needlecraft Magazine. This is a fantastic issue!
Wouldn’t you love to learn how to crochet this…
