Shameless Plug

As you might know, I have a couple of companion sites for this blog. One is the Historical Needlework Resources website. This post is nothing but a shameless plug for that site! Please, if you are interested in historical embroidery, have a look. The two best ways to explore the site are by choosing Location or Period. Location will take you to a choice of geographical areas and give you information on the history of embroidery from that area.

Period, as it suggests, are broken down by century, then by location and type of embroidery. This section is just pages (and pages and pages) of links to extant examples of historical embroidery.

If you have a website that deals with historical embroidery, please think about linking to the site. There is no point in all that work being up there unless people visit!!

I've been working on the site alot recently, and will always being adding information. I am currently working on the Middle East, so if you have any information on the history of embroidery from this area, feel free to send it to me.

You can contribute information by sending it directly to me or by posting it in the relevant discussion board on the Forums.
