2020-12-30 New Publications: Quilts, Kneelers, and a Berlin woolwork pattern.

FUNDRAISING NOW! – Goal: 6000 USD – So far 4486.31 USD –

Donate now to support the Antique Pattern Library project to pay for such things as database and website development, web hosting costs, data entry, scanning equipment, and help us meet the public funding ratio, which allows us to keep our nonprofit status, making your donations tax-deductible, depending on where you live and on the local tax laws and tax treaties.

If you can’t afford to give anything, which also happens in these difficult times, introducing the Library to people who don’t know of it yet, is very useful, since it broadens our user base and therefore also our donor base.

K-YS028 Bury St. Edmunds Cathedral Kneelers
Forty-eight photographs of kneelers in the cathedral of Bury St. Edmunds. This is a small sample of the phenomenal collection of embroidered kneelers in that church. All were embroidered in the 60s, two for each parish, and there’s around 500 parishes in that diocese. Each has the name of the parish, a symbolic representation of the parish or a more general religious motif, to a blue background divided in three parts by a gold and red Y.
See https://parishkneelers.co.uk/churches/suffolk/bury-st-edmundsbury-cathedral/ for smaller images of 81 of them.
Images donated and edited by Sytske Wijnsma.
