Medieval Embroiderers

by SewBusy on Jan 18, 2009

"Embroiderers", a part of the Medieval Craftsmans series, is a concise glimpse into the history of the embroidery art. Ms. Staniland starts with Bronze Age archaeological finds as an introduction. The book, which contains ample photographic examples of fabric, continues through the centuries dealing primarily with the 12th, 13th, and 14th centuries. Questions about pay, skill levels, laws, patronage and more are discussed. The information is well researched; the book is well written. An excellent read for anyone interested in needlework history or medieval history.
