Up for bid is another marvelous Dakota Prairie Treasures antique needlework Spiral Bound Book Republication of our original ''Weldon's Practical Guide to Fancy Work: Mountmellick Embroidery!'' This information was originally published in Great Briton c1885! (Original is NOT for sale)


Our new line of Spiral Bound Book Republications™ oh-so-conveniently lie flat while in use!

This is a unbelievably nice touch if you have every tried to read a pattern's instructions while your hands are full of your in progress project. As an avid needleworker myself my personal experience prompted my choice of spiral binding for it's ease-of-use alone. I bet you'll love it too!


*** Producing the best CD & Spiral Bound Book Republications for you since 1999! ***


This HISTORIC item contains 23 steel plate etchings or engravings of delicate and dainty apppearing Mountmellick embroidery stitches with clear instructions, stitches and fundamentals for creating delicately beautiful, dainty embroidered embellishments! It even addresses the historic background of this art!



''Mountmellick Embroidery is a handsome, strong, and durable work…; the embroidery is much raised, and is consequently thick and heavy, and requires a substantial material like jean to hold the stitches, for a foundation of thin texture would give way under the weight of the embroidery, but good firm materials being selected Mountmellick work will repay all the time and labour expended on it, as it is rich and effective in appearance, not difficult of execution when once the stitches are mastered, and moreover possesses the great merit of washing over and over again and remaining good to the last.''

'' Mountmellick work in eminently suitable for quilts, pillow shams, toilet covers, nightdress sachets, comb and brush bags, and dressing-table Mats and pincushions…Bold, handsome designs of flowers, such as passion flowers, sun flowers, lilies, &c., in groups, or in single flowers, are especially applicable to Mountmellick embroidery…''

Now I am certain the creative fiber and thread artists out there can visualize and conceive many, many creative uses for this art in our modern-day world way beyond the cultural confines of those when this item was created. I could see this art being useful with curtain and clothing embellishments, wall hangings, bed and bath linens, table covers and runners, baby items and gifts galore for the quickly upcoming holiday season!


I have added a bonus to this item! I have included several full-page size (c1885) Mountmellick doily patterns to get you started!


What a historically educational and delightful art instructional piece this is!
