I was so excited to find this vintage Penelope catalogue and knew immediately it had to be shared as a free give away for Needleprint blog readers. You enjoyed one of the illustrations in yesterday's free jigsaw download and there are 52 images, many in colour in 36 pages.
The story of Jacobean embroidery is discussed set against images of historic works from the Victoria and Albert Museum.
There are also stitch descriptions and diagrams, ideas for fillings, and the sories of flowers and animals on Stuart embroideries. There is a lot to love about this booklet which is in pretty good condition, considering its age.
To enter the free draw for this magazine give away - just click on the flying angel below. The winner will be announced 4 February 2013.
