Do you embroider?
Embroidery has intricate stitches, beautiful patterns and is a relaxing hobby. Remember the old “samplers” that used to be made? Women would show off their stitching talents and create a piece of art for their home. Hand embroidery is an art that is all but lost, so I thought I’d share with you an old Canadian J & P Coats instruction booklet on embroidery stitches, that my hubby found for me. 🙂
I haven’t embroidered for years, but looking through this booklet has me dreaming up all sorts of fun projects! I hope you agree and will join me in keeping this beautiful art alive!
Part ll will be next week and will complete the booklet with even more intricate stitches!
