Product Description:
This is a Patterns-on-cd CD ROM title: Embroidery Lessons.
200 Embroidery Stitches instructions originally published in 1912:
Filling stitches play an important part in embroidery. After forming the outline
using chain stitch, back stitch or double running stitch, the in-filling stitches
give live and depth to a design. It can be pretty challenging to come up with a
variety of filling stitches indeed! This is where this little instruction manual on
CD ROM comes in handy!

In this collection of embroidery stitches, I have endeavored to place before those
artists who are interested in needlecraft an exposition of the most useful and
artistic stitches that have formed a part of my own work during several years’ study
and practice of art embroidery. Some of these will be familiar to needle-artists. Others will serve to exemplify how, in process of working, fresh stitches may be evolved from old ones, or how, when originality gains ground entirely new stitches become apparent and workable.

A point somewhat overlooked in art embroidery is the fact that each separate stitch
is a design in itself. If this principle be fully recognized, the necessity for careful ad systematic study of the forms and functions of Embroidery Stitches will immediately become obvious to the student and worker.

Every endeavour has been made to ensure simplicity and point in the directions, and
where possible, suggestions have been given for the application of stitches to useful purposes.

This CD also includes a circa 1912 Jacobean Embroidery reference.
