Weldons Practical Needlework Magazine

Walter Weldon born 1832 was an English chemist, journalist, and fashion publisher. Walter Weldon also founded Weldon’s Fashion Journal, Weldon’s Patterns, and Weldon’s Household Encyclopaedia.

His publications in the late 1800s were through Weldon & Company, a pattern company who produced hundreds of patterns and projects for numerous types of Victorian needlework. Around 1888, the company began to publish a series of books entitled Weldon’s Practical Needlework, each volume consisting of the various newsletters (one year of publications) bound together with a cloth cover and costing 2 shilling/6 pence.
