Madison Avenue Monday
McCall's Needlework, 1953
Simplicity Sewing Book, 1963
Apparently people had longer attention spans in 1953 and 1963, at least, attention spans long enough to read the dense writing in these ads. The scans could be a little better, but these are the best I could do with my home scanner.
I chose these ads because Heidi is in the shop. Apparently the machine tech is in some sort of training this week and she won't be looked at until Friday at the earliest. Sewing sure is "pfun" when you actually have a machine. (sigh) I think I'll work on my hand sewing this week.
