New redwork book online

Check the site of Patricia Cummings She generously shared whith us her new book
Redwork Embroidery and Needlework Traditions in Europe and America. It’s a huge source for all who look not only for patterns, but also for some historical and cultural reference.

Patricia published also some other craft books, it’s a lot of reading for free!

Looking for spring?

Check flowers and butterflies by mangold47. It’s a hudge library of beautiful pictures that you can use as embroidery inspirations or as a base to create color pallettes. It’s amazing, that you can use a simple photo in so many ways, not only as a nice object to watch.

Arts & crafts runners

Have a look at a blog In the fold by Amy Munson Bismarck. She’s showing a wonderful collection of arts & crafts vintage runners.

I love the designs from that time, especially by Charles Rennie Macintosh (I had a chance to see the Glasgow School of Arts, it’s a beautful building). What is more interesting for me, his wife,  Margaret MacDonald, was a really gifted artist and embroiderer. Check this site to see her embroidered panel.

Have you seen this site? If not, go and check the category hobbies and crafts. There’s not too much yet, but you’ll find some interesting how-tos on fiber arts and scrapbooking. You can also add your own how-to and make the site more helpful 🙂
