Woman’s World

Woman's World WeavingCheck this one out, ladies.  I have no idea how old it is, but it must be pre 1965 looking at the price.  Threepence!  Is that a bargain?  I have no idea. The journal gives plenty of delightful ideas on how to use your wondrous woven fabric which you have made during your precious few spare moments of the day.

Woman's World WeavingAccording to my research, Women’s World was published in the 1940s and 1950s, possibly longer to keep women informed, and to give women instruction on how to be good at everything housewifeish, or at least better.  There were a number of titles with the same name which makes it difficult to determine if I have the correct one, so sorry if I’m wrong.

Woman's World WeavingThe weaving instructions are so detailed that it makes them a little confusing to me.  Then again, I’m not a weaver so perhaps that’s how all weaving patterns are explained. Thank goodness we now have youtube and don’t have to bother with all that reading.

Woman's World WeavingSo off I go to google a recipe for dinner, like a good, modern little housewife.
