9781861085610: 19th Century Embroidery Techniques

When embroidery shifted out of the industrial sector and turned into a hobby in the 19th century, it became a craft all its own. Interweaving snippets of social history and historical facts with project ideas and patterns, this must-have guide provides both context and inspiration for crafters and collectors alike. Learn the basic stitches needed to embellish a gentleman’s black velvet waistcoat with stunning chenille threads, a footstool with a plush cover, a girl’s white dress with a charming heart motif on the flounce, and more.
