The Embroidery Guide (Classic Reprint)

    Excerpt from The Embroidery Guide

    It is delightful that we were able to gather together the charming designs used in our lessons. They are so new and unusual and so thoroughly artistic - the very best and choicest, selected from the loveliest designs of the season. And, best of all, perforated patterns of all the designs and a stamping outfit go with the book, so that each design can be used, not once or twice, but hundreds of times. The designs cover all kinds of embroidery, and the lessons include all the important stitches, which means that those of you who have never known how to take the first stitch will be able, with the assistance of this book, to make the handsomest embroideries in the world. For these stitches not only are necessary to the designs given, but they may be used for thousands of other things, all of which is told about in our lessons. The patterns, too, can be used in a great many other ways. If one wishes to embroider a small spray and the leaf is at one end of a large pattern and the bud at the other, stamp first the leaf, then the bud, joining them on the stems. A straight pattern may be turned after part is stamped, to form an angle. Parts of one pattern may be stamped on parts of another, thus providing patterns for an infinite number of purposes. Used in this way the perforated sheets present hundreds of patterns, with variety enough to fill the requirements of the average needlewoman for her entire lifetime.
