Needlework A-Go Go #15
I'm well aware there's many of you going: "Damn. Another stupid yarn post!" Just know that these posts get pretty good traffic, and there's probably just as many of you out their disappointed when there's a non-fashion related post (i.e. movie, TV, music).
So, for those of you that can appreciate a good needlework post, here's some vintage scans from the 60s and 70s, I hope you enjoy them. The next two are actually my all-time favorite needlework leaflet covers. Absolutely fantastic in terms of fashion and kitsch.
BTW these two color images are the front and back of the same leaflet.
This is an interior image. Nice.
The fonts, the composition, the wackiness... these got it all right. I'm not sure if it helped sell sweaters, but it definitely gave it appeal fifty years later.
I'm not so sure the same can be said for the next one...
Here's another Aunt Lydia leaflet.
And, last but not least, a Spinnerin leaflet with a music theme. These are just fantastic.
