Weldon's Practical Shilling Guide To Fancy Work - Macrame Work!
Published by Weldons, LTD, London
Up for bid is another marvelous Dakota Prairie Treasures CD Republication of the original ''Weldon's Practical Guide to Fancy Work: Macram?!'' This book was originally published in London, England circa 1885! (Original is NOT for sale)
All Dakota Prairie Treasures CD Republications are viewable on Windows, Mac and Linux pc operating systems!
This item is a great resource for those who are Victorian and Dickens historical reenactment enthusiasts, students of historical clothing, fiber and textile arts, etc!
This HISTORIC item contains 33 steel plate etchings or engravings of delicate and dainty macram? lace with clear instructions, designs and fundamentals for creating delicately beautiful, dainty lace! It even addresses, in very fine detail, the historic background of this art!
''Macram? Work, or knotting, is of very ancient origin, and dates as far back as the sixteenth century, when it was much used in Italy and Spain for beautifying ecclesiastical linen and priest; vestments. The work ''Macram?'' is of Eastern derivation, and signifies ''a cloth with an ornamental fringe;'' it, therefore, was applied by the Italians in the neighbourhood of Genoa to a kind of huckaback material, the ends of which were fringed and knotted in various fanciful devices. Macram? work has lately revived in favour and is certainly both a pleasant and useful occupation; it is easily and quickly executed, and is so strong that once done it lasts almost for ever.''
''Uses of Macram?. Many useful articles can be made in Macram? work, such as table and mantel borders, brackets, fringes for household linen and towels, nightdress cases, handkerchief sachets, wall pockets, tidies, work-bags, shopping-baskets, cosies, insertions for antimacassars, and fringes for dress-trimmings.''
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 guess I am a product of the times as I never thought of macram? beyond the plant and wall hangings of the 70's which were made with stout cords, heavy twines and wooden beads. Now this antique information has changed my perspective in that the items made are constructed of our equivalent of fine to coarse crochet weight types of threads but of linen, not cotton. I imagine when I begin to play with this I will use some of my size G and up vintage and antique silk threads. I might even get to the point where I will experiment with antique glass seed beads in the project just because I can
:^) There is a great deal more latitude with this fiber art then I ever imagined!
FYI: The antique, vintage and contemporary silk, linen and cotton thread and other materials are available on Atomic Mall (or at your local hobby or fabric store for contemporary materials)! You just have to hunt a little bit! :^)
Here is an OLD, resourceful and exceptional crochet instructional and design book on CD-ROM. These instructions are characteristic of the macrame needlework done by our lady ancestors! This is the perfect opportunity to purchase your own version of another wonderful craft book revealing our heritage from early America and Europe!
