MODERN PRISCILLA (1887-1930) began at Lynn, Massachusetts, as a sixteen-page quarto devoted to fancy work, dress patterns, china painting, and needlework in general, at fifty cents a year. In 1894 it was moved to Boston, and eventually it was enlarged in scope to cover many other aspects of women's home life. It absorbed EVERYDAY HOUSEKEEPING in March 1912, and HOME NEEDLEWORK MAGAZINE in May 1917. The last issue was July 1930, after which it apparently merged into NEEDLECRAFT. A good short history of this magazine can be found at the eNewsstand project.
