Victorian Embroidery and Crafts


If you love Victorian needlework of any kind or Victorian crafts, Victorian Embroidery and Crafts is the place for you!

Victorian Embroidery and Crafts will show you how to produce beautiful items just like they did in Victorian times. Victorian embroidery and almost every type of needlework of that era has (or will be) included here as well as Victorian crafts of all kinds.

You will find a great number of practical items, not so practical, and fancy items to create. And for those of you who do not consider yourselves artistically inclined, do not despair! There are plenty of instructions to help you create something wonderful for yourself, your home, a friend, or a family member. Take a look around. I'm sure you'll find an item or two (or more) that catches your fancy!

Begin your journey by perusing the multitude of embroidery stitches and all the variations of each stitch. Varying the stitches on a project will make the project your own, making your article not a reproduction but a true work of art.

Crochet, Knitting, Tatting and Other Needlecrafts

Each needlecraft is represented here (or will be soon). With the great variation of Victorian styles and artistic abilities, there is sure to be at least one that you find is just right for you. But don't be surprised if you find a great many - some of which you might not have known even existed! Take a look around and see what awaits you.


You will find a great number of patterns, instructions, and illustrations provided FREE! Whether it is embroidery, arts, or crafts that you are interested in, you will find it here. All instructions (unless otherwise noted) are authentic Victorian!

If you have completed a project from this site, or would like to share a Victorian project you feel others who love all things Victorian would enjoy, please let me know.

Victorian Embroidery and Crafts is a place to learn, a place to get ideas, and a place to share your embroidery and craft successes (and failures) in making true Victorian artwork with others.
