Creative Needle back issues available

catstownow | Posted in General Discussion on

I’m posting to let everyone know about a number of Creative Needle back issues and rare Collector’s Editions I have. Creative Needle was a magazine that specialized in smocking, handsewing, embroidery, and machine arts from 1985 to 2008.


The Collector’s Editions – all six issues for one year in a beautiful hardbound binding – are from a private collection of unsold old stock and are in excellent condition. They range all the way back to the very first year of Creative Needle, 1985…a very rare book indeed! I believe these are the only remaining unsold Collector’s Editions left. Once they’re gone, there will be no more ever!


The single issues are from a private owner’s collection, and as such are used, but they’re all in very good condition. Many of them include patterns, too.


See my eBay store for all the details, where each auction includes scans of the covers of each issue as well as scans of the content pages, in case you’re looking for something in particular. If you have any questions, feel free to contact me through eBay. Here’s a link to the items:

    Lenore Layette patterns

    I know this is a long shot but do you know what issue of Creative Needle Magazine the Lenore Layette was in?  Thanks very much.
