This exceptionally fine needlecraft guide from the turn of the twentieth century includes instructions for projects that range from drawn-thread work — one of the oldest and simplest forms of art needlework — to the attractive novelty of bead embroidery on netting.
Abundantly illustrated directions for "fancy stitchery" also provide tips for such exquisite creations as reticella lace and Venetian crochet, elegant hardanger and hedebo work, macramé, cross-stitch, ancient cut-work, and embroidery on flannel.
A useful manual for anyone who enjoys re-creating needlecraft projects from an earlier era and a valuable reference for collectors of antique laces and dress trimmings, this volume also provides a captivating glimpse of needlework from a bygone era.
