Antique Victorian Embroidery Lessons with Colored Studies

CD Republication

Originally Published 1899!

 

Up for bid here is another lovely Antique Victorian Embroidery Lessons with Colored Studies instruction book REPRODUCED on CD! And from a non-smoking home! (Original is NOT for sale)

This 150 page book in cd-rom format covers the gentle art of using linen or cotton, needles and various threads (silk, linen and cotton) to make the daintiest (but also amazingly sturdy) decorative embroidered doilies and for the classiest of homes.

This CD item includes DETAILED INSTRUCTIONS for 50 DIFFERENT EMBROIDERED FLOWERS, BUTTERFLIES AND BIRDS, 43 DIFFERENT EMBROIDERY STITCHES, and 29 ANTIQUE, ORIGINAL VICTORIAN DOILY PATTERNS from the late 1800's! ALL PATTERNS IN THE LISTING COLLAGE ARE INCLUDED PLUS 3 MORE! I have also produced and included FULL SIZED PATTERNS for those 29 doilies shown in the listing collage.

You may trace these patterns to your fabric at this size or easily enlarge them for larger finished products using a copier machine or other enlargement processes available today. You can see this book will keep you busy a long time making beautiful, dainty, colorful decorative fabric items for you and yours, as gifts or to sell!

 

An excerpt:

''We believe that this book is all that we hoped to make it. It embodies the results of our long experience and the careful labor of a corps of expert embroiderers, whose efforts have been joined to our own. In preparing the ''Lessons in Embroidery Stitches,'' our object was to make them really lessons and to have them written exactly as a teacher would instruct a beginner in one of her classes. The classification of the stitches in this article is most unique, as is also the offer to furnish worked samples of stitches, which we believe has never before been made by any other concern.''
