Do you love historical needlework? From detailed charts to illustrations of vintage needlework designs for cross-stitch, crewel work, smocking, and appliqué, this eBook is sure to delight and intrigue you.
Each of the four series begins with an overview of the technique, how it is worked, and its uses. Among the patterns included are numerous borders, centers, corners, and initials in the cross-stitch series; flowers and leaves in the crewel series; flowers and griffins in the appliqué series; plus a variety of patterns in the smocking series.
Weldon’s Practical Cross-Stitch, Crewel Work, Smocking, and Appliqué Work was originally published in 1887. We have reproduced for you here the cross-stich, crewel work, smocking, and appliqué work material included in Volume 2 of Weldon’s Practical Needlework. The designs are often ingenious and many of the objects transcend the century-plus span of years since they were devised.
