    I vote for 1967.

  2. Jenny says:

    I vote 1967 for the same reason, because it’s the oldest in the list. In the 1980s I was subscribing to Workbasket on my own. In 1967 I couldn’t read yet 🙂

    Jenny, I could read just fine in 1967.
    Happyhouseholder, is it possible to copy some of those patterns and upload for us? I like the simpler patterns best.

    • I’m hoping to contact the copyright office and get details of what I can legally share. As soon as I do I intend to share as much as I can. The magazine came out for such a long span of time that I believe there may be different rules for different issues, I’m not really sure how that works. 🙂

        Last I heard, all of the copyrights were bought by some company. I don’t remember its name, but it wasn’t too long ago, so sadly, I am sure all the patterns are still under current copyright laws. If you can find out who purchased the copyrights, they may give you permission.

          That’s very helpful! One thing I wondered was if they were all protected by newer copyright, since the later issues extend into the current coverage. I wonder how to even track that name down. All I’ve ever found online is websites from fans, never anything official.

        I found this: I checked one magazine that I have and found no copyright notice.

        http://copyright.cornell.edu/resources/publicdomain.cfm
        Under the section entitled Works Registered or First Published in the US
        Date of Publication Conditions Copyright Term
        Before 1923 None None. In the public domain due to copyright expiration
        1923 through 1977 Published without a copyright notice None. In the public domain due to failure to comply xxx with required formalities

        Sorry, format did copy well.

        • Alicia S says:

          I’ll add this info to my digging and researching! Thanks! The gentleman at the copyright office said that the stuff after 1964 is protected, but that before that may not be, it depends on what legwork the magazine did at the time. So we shall see. I’m not giving up until I get all the details! 🙂

    oops that’s hippyhouseholder.

  5. Jan says:

    Thank you, Alicia. I was searching previous posts to see if you had given you name.

    I pick 1967. I love the older issues, especially the early 40’s and 50’s. So the older the better. 🙂 I’ve really enjoyed your postings.

  7. I pick the 1975 edition. The one with the kids seemed creepy to me and the picture of the 1975 edition seemed like a comfortable design.

    1967! I love that sweater pose. Reminds me of photos of my babyhood.

  9. Gloria says:

    I vote February 1967! I had a sweater very much like that!

  10. Alicia S says:

    Thanks for voting everyone! The 1967 issue won! Since 1975 got the second most votes I’ll do the March issue from that year. I’ll debut the February issue and it’s projects at the beginning of the month.

    […] doing this blog a few months, but this is the first time that two months were randomly picked (and voted on) that were sequential! I do hope it’s a rare occurrence but I also think it’s […]
