I found this online facsimile of a book of lace designs by Federic Vinciolo who in 1606 was commissioned by the French court to produce lace. Many of these designs could be used as a design source – converted to cross stitch and used on samplers. Thinking about it, I am sure someone has already done that probably at the time of publication!
My aim with Pintangle is to help enable you to express yourself in fabric and thread. I focus on hand embroidery and crazy quilting with a modern twist. Here you will find tutorials, free patterns, stitch instructions, techniques and tips and of course stitchers eye candy galore.
At the moment I am currently working on a book on Crazy quilting.
