Anybody have any Old-Time Crochet Magazines.  I just found one at a yard sale.  They were published up into the 90's at least as this one is 1994.  What a nice crochet magazine.  I would love to have more.  Especially if they have crochet edgings which is my favorite thing to crochet.

some small booklet-type magazines I had in a box.  Now I just have to find the box again.  LOL!! 

Anyway, I believe there were at least 25 magazines of crocheting.  I have to find the box and see just what the titles were.  I can get back to you on Monday (box probably went into our storage unit) about these, if you are still interested.

Thanks Kathy,

I don't know if they printed them small at one time or not and later expanded.  I had never heard of them until I found one at the garage sale.  My mom used to get the Magic Crochet ones, they were a full size magazine size, and I always liked those.  I still have a few.  She also got some called the Workbasket, which were small and had a variety of craft stuff, knitting, crochet, tatting, etc.  But I had never heard of the Old Time Crochet magazines until I found the one.  It is full sized, most of the pictures are black and white, but such nice patterns.  I especially want crochet edging patterns.

Thanks for looking!
