The book is more along the lines of "fragements of" pieces. Other than the Oxburgh and Hardwick panels, the charts and patterns are of bits or motiefs of the pieces presented. Granted, the pieces presented are all huge and would each make a book in themselves, and this book gives a delightful taste of each piece, along with information about the background of the piece. The charts and designs are nicely done. Note that some are near-copies while others take elements and combine them.

Great idea for a modern quilt pattern, especially with a jelly roll. it's a quilt pattern, but it has me thinking of black and white small square floor tiles for the bathroom! Nice X-stitch pattern, which I would stitch in bright colours. Great idea for a modern quilt pattern, especially with a jelly roll. Photo from album "ЖАККАРД" on.

When the book Crewel Embroidery in England by Joan Edwards sauntered into the conversation, I.Jacobean comes from the Latin name Jacobus, which is James in English.

When the book Crewel Embroidery in England by Joan Edwards sauntered into the conversation, I couldn’t say for sure whether I was familiar with the book, whether I had actually seen the book, or whether I owned i. Jacobean refers to a style of embroidery design, and crewel embroidery is not synonymous with Jacobean embroidery, though Jacobean designs were often worked in wool. Crewel embroidery is simply embroidery worked with wool, or predominantly with wool.

If you have any interest in Embroidery then this Rare Old Pattern Design book is a must have for your collection. The original copy of this rare book was first printed in 1824.

I'm so happy I found this book! It combines my love of embroidery, needlework history and charts to replicate the famous works. This is a largish book with 128 pages including a good stitch guide close-up color charts of each of the pieces (I've displayed a few above) and fine charts for each pattern. (I included the one for part of the Dutch sampler.) I love it that we know the provenance of each piece ensconced in famous museums in the world including the V&A in London, the Metropolitan Museum of Art in NYC, the Henry Francis du Pont Winterthur Museum in Delaware, and other museums in the US and Europe.

I really enjoy the discussion of the history of each piece and the context for each one. Additional b&w photos of other contemporary pieces are included in the text to illustrate the overview of the style and origin of each piece. While it might be nice to have the patterns to make every piece, that would make the book 5x larger and be cost prohibitive. If you want to, however, you can find charts for many of the works from other sources.

The variety of pieces photographed, charted and discussed are broken down by time: Medieval, Renaissance, Elizabethan; by type of embroidery: sampler, carpet, pictorial; and by genre: crewel, Florentine and cross stitch. This is one of my favorite books among hundreds I own. I haven't made one of the pieces yet because I can't narrow down which one I'd like to do!

I ordered this book for one chart (one of the Oxburgh pieces), but was delighted to see the number of other pieces. The book is more along the lines of "fragements of" pieces.
