Machine Embroidered book – Pages 7-10 …

These 4 pages reference the variety of transfers that were available for stitching for varied uses and on many different fabrics.

With wide ranging uses, transfers could ‘brighten up’ any recycled material as well as enhance drab (fabric) colours.

The samples shown were stitched using today’s threads but in colours as close as possible to the ones of the period.

There were also
suggestions to use other items of haberdashery for making or enhancing clothes and home furnishings.
