The first publication is a Berlin woolwork pattern. Iva Innocenti donated the scan, and Steven Stephan made a color chart and a symbol chart for it. Actually, the roses are only half of the donated pattern, but the other half is a bit more difficult to work out and it will follow later. Because Steven […]
Reminder: If you have a lovely item of needlework, from which a pattern could be reconstructed, you might consider taking proper pictures and let us have them, with permission to publish. That’s what I’m asking of ebay sellers who have an item that’s too expensive for us (or just too big to ship, like a […]
Before I get into the new publications, another remark first (just to make sure everybody reads it, since not everybody reaches the last paragraph. Actually, do read the last paragraph this time…) If you have a lovely item of needlework, from which a pattern could be reconstructed, you might consider taking proper pictures and let […]
This week, again three new publications. It looks like I’d best return to the two/three publications at-a-time schedule. There’s more stuff in the pipeline – let’s see if we can at least keep going at this rate. PUBLICATIONS The first on the list is an ebay donation, of antiquesandmooresales, of a very lovely beadwork panel. […]
This week, only three new publications – sorry, there have been too many other things interfering. But they are three lovely ones, and I hope they inspire people to take up a needle and thread – or a blackboard chalk. PUBLICATIONS The first on the list is Cusack’s Blackboard Drawing. It’s a training course for […]
Only four publications this week, since there’s been some administration to catch up with. PUBLICATIONS The first one is an ebay image donation of ebay seller cotswoldcats, a lovely length of embroidery for an unknown purpose, and its charted design.
Another eight publications this weekAnd drat, I forgot the rice paper flowers! That’s for next time. Judith pointed out to me that my administrative backlog is worse than the publication backlog, so next time will have less publications than this one – but they will all get done (eventually). First, a bit of a riddle […]
Originally posted by Thinkerer Selby Evans Reposted Archive by Admin Article Author: Sytske There was this question, what use is the Antique Pattern Library? We, New Media Arts, have our charitable purpose, where it’s worded to perfection of course, but what about the actual good it is? How do people profit from having that resource […]
The first is one of Marleens patterns, charted and since it’s a quarter pattern, with an extra illustration to show the complete pattern. Second, another of Flora Klickmanns books, “Pillow lace and handworked trimmings”. There’s three sections, Pillow lace, Needlepoint laces and handmade collars, Embroideries and trimmings, so it’s best qualified as a various-techniques book.
Sytske and I are planning a series of short notes on ways to approach editing the scans for Antique Pattern Library. There are many ways to do it, and we each prefer different software and workflows. Some things are true for all of the books.So here goes. OK, not so short today…Right now I’m working […]
