The absolute want of any comprehensive book onneedleworkâsuch an one as contains both verbal andpictorial descriptions of everything included under thename of needleworkâhas led me to put into the serviceableform of an Encyclopedia, all the knowledge andexperience, which years of unceasing study and practicehave enabled me to accumulate on the subject, with thehope that diligent female workers of all ages, may be able,by its means to instruct themselves in every branch ofplain and fancy needlework.In order that my readers may have something besidesthe dull theory, the work is enlivened by a number ofuseful patterns, some new, some derived from the artisticproductions of such countries and epochs as havebecome famous by special excellence in the domain ofneedlework.With no further adieu, I present you with theAll the patterns given, even the most insignificant,were worked afresh for the purpose, and thus, not merelyfaithful representations, but also lucid and intelligibleexplanations of the same, are secured.You will find many helpful ideas and hints in all areas of needlework. So take your time, look around, and come back often to visit this special place. Many of these interesting designs are drawn fromprivate collections, whose owners, with great kindness,placed their treasures at my disposal, to copy and borrowfrom at discretion, for which I desire to take the presentopportunity, of tendering them my warmest thanks.Experience has convinced me that, in many instances,these cottons may with advantage take the place of wool,linen thread, and even silk.If this work meet with indulgent judges, and provereally useful, I shall find ample reward in that fact forthe trouble and difficulties that have unavoidably attendedits completion.The choice of colours and materialâa difficult matterto manyâmy readers will find rendered comparativelyeasy to them by the notes affixed to the illustrations; andI may point out, that most of the patterns were workedwith D.M.C cottons, which enjoy the well-earned reputationof being, the very best of their kind, in the marketof the world.
