Something New for You!


There have been new additions to Victorian Embroidery and Crafts. I hope you enjoy!

Lattice Stitch – The Lattice stitch is used in making borders of uniform width. Worked much like the Ismit Stitch, it is quite easy to do and provides a pretty pattern to embroidery projects. Take a look and see how. Lattice Stitch.

New Patterns

Tam O'Shanter - A What? This is a true Victorian cap. It was crocheted and made specifically for its ease of folding to put in a pocket and that it was, when made with the correct materials, as every Victorian physician knew, a non-conductor of electricity to afford a great protection to the head. (Yes, you read that right!) Learn more at

Thank you to all of you who have taken the survey. It has been very interesting. I will post the results at the end of July so you will know how others answered.

To those of you who have posted something in the Comments section: I have responded to many of those who have left comments and will continue to do so. If you haven't received an answer from me yet, you will soon.

If You Haven't Completed the Survey...

Please do. It contains a few common questions I am often asked as well as questions about what you think will make Victorian Embroidery and Crafts a better site. It will take only a minute or two to complete it. At the end of July I will post the results for all to see. Of course, no personal information will be revealed so you don't have to worry about your name being published. As a matter of fact, I am only asking for a first name, just in case you have requested I contact you.

Your comments, constructive criticisms (yes, even those), and suggestions are very important to me.
Your Opinion Counts!

That's it for this newsletter. You can expect another email from me in a week or so with more new and free content.

Until next time....

With warmest regards,
