Lettering Ideas from Old Embrodery Manuals
« on: November 28, 2016, 04:26:15 AM »
Looking through pinterest today and clicking links within links, I came across this blog which I thought I would share with you all.
http://patternmakercharts.blogspot.com.au
and specifically these pages, link here and here.
The rest of the site would be quite interesting for any embroiderers out there with quite a lot of old historic pattern books linked, with most having a calligraphy theme.
