NR! Click to view supersized image Antique Victorian The Art of Drawn-Work: Standard and Novel Methods CD REPUBLICATION! Originally Published by The Butterick Publishing Co. in 1891! Up for bid is another lovely Antique Victorian CD REPUBLICATION "The Art of Drawn-work", which includes scores of patterns and instructions! These folks provided some of the best instruction books for the needle arts ever published! The experienced needlecraft and fancywork artisans of the late 1800's clamored for this type of item and with good reason! (Original is NOT for sale) This 122 page item covers the gentle art of using linen, cotton or other materials, needles and various threads (silk, linen and cotton) to make the daintiest (but also amazingly sturdy) decorative drawnwork needlework doilies, centerpieces,dresser scarves, tidies, and clothes for the classiest of homes. You can readily find these antique and vintage linen and other materials on online! You just have to search a little bit! :) Or, you can select similar contemporary items on online or at your nearest craft, hobby or fabric store. This HISTORIC item includes over 200 steel plate etchings and illustrations! You can see this book will keep you busy a long time making beautiful, dainty, colorful decorative soft home furnishings and fabric items for you and yours, as gifts or to sell! These instructions are characteristic of the fancy work done by our oh-so-feminine lady ancestors during the Victorian era! This is the perfect opportunity to purchase your own version of another wonderful arts and craft book revealing our heritage from early America and Europe! An excerpt from this book: "A BOOK of instruction, whether it be for the use of children or adults, amateurs or experts, should be complete. By this we mean that, as far as possible, it should begin at the alphabet, or the rudiments of the subject-matter, and progress step by step to the climax of mastery. In planning and preparing this pamphlet upon Drawn-Work, the point just mentioned has been kept constantly in view. Beginning with a list of suitable fabrics, knotting materials and implements, and telling how to draw the threads and make the foundation stitch of all drawn-work, we have placed before the student every step of the work from the rudiments to the development of the most elaborate designs; and of the latter we have selected many noted for their beauty, some of which are intricate in construction and effect, others easy to develop but complicated in appearance, while many are extremely attractive to the eye from their very simplicity of design and construction. The instructions and suggestions found in the book make the development of all of the design easy of accomplishment, and render the evolution of individual designs an occupation of fascinating interest. " CONTENTS. CHAPTER I. History of the Art of Drawn-Work - Materials Used in Drawn-work (Fabrics, The Cotton or Thread) - Drawing the Threads (Process of Drawing Threads) - Frames for Drawn-Work (Hoop Frame, Square Frame, Home Made Frame) "Spanish or Mexican Drawn-Work" CHAPTER II.
