More New Items Just For You

Hello!

Here are some of the new articles and crafts now available at Victorian Embroidery and Crafts. I'm sure you'll find something of interest to you.

What's New!

Well, Fall is almost upon us. I have spent most of my summer either outside with my new hobby - herbs or with my family. I've added a number of new items to the site since my last email. Here are just a few articles that have been added recently:
  • Embroidery on Chip - This was the Victorian answer to hot pads and table coasters for protecting tables. Find out more here - Embroidery on Chip.

  • Etching embroidery - also known as Print Work, was used to reproduce line engravings with embroidery and paint. Learn more about this fascinating embroidery technique here. Etching Embroidery.

New Stitches that have been added.

  • Au Passe Stitch - The Au Passe Stitch is a flat Satin Stitch, worked across the material, with no raised foundation. Learn more about this stitch here: Au Passe Stitch.

  • Battlemented Stitch - also known as the Battlement Stitch, is often used in decorative embroidery for castle tops, etc. It is a great little stitch to know. See how easy it is to do! Battlemented Stitch.
New Crafts that have been added.

That's it for now. I hope you find something of interest to you.

With warm regards,

Mary
