Needlework-An Historical Survey

May 20, 2010

This is not a book per se but rather a compilation of needlework articles first published in The magazine Antiques. The articles, reprinted exactly as they appeared in the magazine, range in publication date from 1922 to 1975 and include notable authors Ethel Stanwood Bolton, Susan B. Swan and Betty Ring; who did triple duty as editor, contributor and author of the introduction. The compilation, published in 1975, includes 35 articles arranged in various categories: English Embroideries, Canvas Work, Schoolgirl Embroideries, Bed Coverings, and Rugs and Carpets. This is an interesting and informative publication; and hard to find, unfortunately. There are a few copies that can be purchased through the used booksellers at It would be worth the hunt to find it!!
