Needlework Patterns in the Era of Jane Austen: Ackermann's Repository of Arts

Book Overview
What would Jane Austen have stitched, while seated in her drawing room and waiting for callers? Needlework Patterns in the Era of Jane Austen is a comprehensive source for all the needlepoint patterns published in one of the most influential periodicals of Austen's lifetime - Ackermann's Repository of Arts. In drawing up this little book, we understand in this modern age to many women do not have the same leisure time to produce attractive pieces of needlework as the daughters of dukes did yesteryear. However, there may be just a few readers interested in these patterns...collected from thousands of pages and gathered in this one book. There are no technical directions that would enable a beginning needlewoman to teach herself this art but just a pictorial of needlepoint designs. They were originally published as black and white images so they are in this book in black and white. Experienced needlepoint and embroidery enthusiasts, creative crafters, and researchers will all treasure these authentic examples of fashionable needlepoint patterns in the era of Jane Austen. Needlework Patterns in the Era of Jane Austen covers twelve years of fashion embroidery designs in the Georgian and Regency periods (1809-1820). * This book is best viewed in the Kindle version unless you truly want to embroidery these patterns.
