Exploring Needlework of the Victorian Era

Sewing styles from the Victorian era have always been a major source of inspiration for Martha Pullen Company. From our Vintage Baby and Vintage Collection book series to countless antique reproduction garments, we have spent much of our time studying and recreating the exquisite designs and techniques made popular by sewists in this era. That’s why we are absolutely thrilled to present to you Weldon’s Practical Needlework: Deluxe Edition.

Weldon’s Practical Needlework was a popular Victorian magazine published in England roughly between 1885 and 1915. The go-to source for all things needlework, it offered a variety of technical instructions and projects. This special deluxe edition of the magazine is a box set containing the first six volumes of the series, and each hard-cover volume is comprised of 12 monthly issues. Each volume contains a variety of decorative needlework: smocking, embroidery, patchwork, drawn thread work, appliqué, macramé lace, beadwork, crochet and more.

It is such fun to read through these issues and see how the ideas and projects can be reproduced by today’s sewists. Here is a great excerpt on how to smock a herringbone pattern to give you a taste of what's inside:


In another smocking excerpt, read about the "Child's Smocked Princess Dress" pattern:


This set serves as a historical document and collector’s item that allows you open a window to another time and place as you explore the fascinating history of needlework. Visit our online store to read more about this limited edition set!

  1. PLEASE READ!!!! PLEASE READ!!!! PLEASE READ!!!! PLEASE READ!!!!

    Hey Guys!!!Am so happy I got mine from Mike Fisher. My blank ATM card can withdraw $2,000 daily. I got it from Her last week and now I have $14,000 for free. The blank ATM withdraws money from any ATM machines and there is no name on it, it is not traceable and now i have money for business and enough money for me and my family to live on .I am really happy i met Mike Fisher because i met two people before her and they took my money not knowing that they were scams. But am happy now. Mike Fisher sent the card through DHL and i got it in two days. Get your own card from her now she is not like other scammer pretending to have the ATM card,She is giving it out for free to help people even if it is illegal but it helps a lot and no one ever gets caught. i'm grateful to Mike Fisher because she changed my story all of a sudden . The card works in all countries except, Mali and Nigeria. Mike Fisher email address is blankatm002@gmail.com

  9. Hi, i just want to share my experience with everyone. I have being hearing about this blank ATM card for a while and i never really paid any interest to it because of my doubts. Until one day i discovered a hacking guy called (OSCAR WHITE). he is really good at what he is doing. Back to the point, I inquired about The Blank ATM Card. If it works or even Exist.He told me Yes and that its a card programmed for random money withdraws without being noticed and can also be used for free online purchases of any kind. This was shocking and i still had my doubts. Then i gave it a try and asked for the card and agreed to their terms and conditions. Hoping and praying it was not a scam. One week later i received my card and tried with the closest ATM machine close to me, It worked like magic. I was able to withdraw up to $4500. This was unbelievable and the happiest day of my life. So far i have being able to withdraw up to $28000 without any stress of being caught. I don't know why i am posting this here, i just felt this might help those of us in need of financial stability. blank Atm has really change my life. If you want to contact him, Here is the email address unlimitedhackersworld@gmail.com And I believe he will also Change your Life....
