The pattern offered by The American Weekly were the same Designs of Laura Wheeler / Alice Brooks. The same cover pictures, as well as directions and diagrams were the same. Only difference - the pattern name displayed and the envelopes and the pattern numbers themselves. The American Weekly patterns were in the 3000 through 3800 series, depending upon the pattern type.
Notes: In the 3100 number series.
There are very few newspaper references on The American Weekly papers. The paper was published on very thin paper, which did not stand-up to time - i.e., being scanned into archives. (What a real loss!). There are a few references out there in Internet land as there were a couple newspapers - for example Cincinnati OH, that printed the Womens section in their newspaper page, not as a separate circular.
The American Weekly Publication was discontinued in 1966.
If you'd care to look, I have a number of these patterns in the shop (and more waiting to be entered). If you happen to know more information about The American Weekly Patterns, I'd appreciate your sharing!
Thanks for dropping by.
