Spinnerin Volume 168 ~ Embroidery Stitches

Vintage patterns can be beautiful, which is why I bought this old Spinnerin. (front cover) Vintage patterns can also be hilariously tacky, which is why I bought this old Spinnerin. (back cover) Lucky for you over the next few weeks I’ll be posting all the good, the bad, and the ugly afghan patterns your twitchy little fingers could ever hope to knit or crochet! Here are some Embroidery Stitches to wet your appetite…

STITCH PATTERNS and Design For EMBROIDERY Elementary Design For Craftwork Tutorial Book

"Instant Digital Download If you have any interest in Creating Stitch Patterns for Embroidery or Needlework then this is a great book to have in your collection. My Personal 100% Guarantee To You If you Buy this Book and after reading it, You feel that You did not get Your Money's worth from it, Message me and I will cancel your purchase and Refund Your Money. And You Can Keep The Book as My Personal Gift To You. PREFACE In the preface to the first edition of \" Simple Stitch Patterns for Embroidery,\" I explained that my object was not to compete with the books on embroidery and fine needlework already written by experts, but to devise a simple and direct method of decorative stitchery for workers with little leisure for fine work, and to help teachers, dressmakers, and others to be independent of the printed transfers and designs. The success of \" Simple Stitch Patterns \" has encouraged me to carry further the method of building up orderly and balanced designs on stitches and groups of stitches, and adding to the number and variety of suggestive patterns, thereby, I hope, giving practical help while fostering the love of pattern-making which is inherent in almost all of us. Some of the patterns shown here require more skill than do those in the above book, and though this book may be considered a development of it, neither is in any way dependent on the other. The method and use of the two simple gauges explained here have in practice been much appreciated as a means of introduction to original elementary design for craftwork generally. My grateful appreciation is here recorded to Miss Grace Brandon for valuable help with diagrams and proof corrections. A. B.-J.
