What caught my eye with this one is the cover illustration, but of course the booklet is a piece of Depression era ephemera too. It was intelligently designed so that a homemaker could begin at any month and still complete the entire year. The original owner of this one, however, gave it a limp start in April and was done in May. The booklet explains how to do it and provides numerous categories, plus hints on saving.

It hardly shows. The catalog has fifteen pages in color and offers instructions. Crafters could buy kits with everything needed to make the ship rug (see photo) and other attractive designs. The catalog measures 8" tall and 11" wide and has 16 pages of info including the back cover. View more info
