Designs Worth Doing and Adventures in Needlecraft were Mail Order Catalogs published by McKim Studios throughout most of the 1920s and 1930s. The catalogs offered hundreds of original Ruby Short McKim designs for functional household uses, home decorating and gift ideas. Many of the "treasures" offered here were offered in the original catalogs.
