Ladies Home Journal – Vintage Embroidery Patterns

I just realized last week that the images on my site are distorted using Internet Explorer 8. Apparently the problem has something to do with my WordPress theme, but so far I haven’t been able to figure it out. If you are using IE8 and the images are messed up, you can click on the “compatibility view” button just to the right of the address bar, and that should correct the distortion.

This is a wonderful catalog of all the embroidery patterns published by the Ladies Home Journal magazine in the early 1920s. I was not aware that LHJ published so many patterns — there are hundreds in this book — and the art deco illustrations accompanying the patterns are very cute. Although the book itself is quite large, the drawings of the patterns are smallish and it is difficult to get a decent scan.
