Victorian Alphabets, Monograms and Names for Needleworkers from Godey S Lady S B Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The Victorian woman put initials on nearly every piece of linen and clothing she owned — everything from handkerchiefs and blouses to tablecloths, napkins, and towels. The modern needleworker may not be quite so avid about initialing everything, but initials and monograms are still attractive and popular ways of decorating common items.

This book brings you a large selection of alphabets, initials, monograms, and common names from Godey's Lady's Book and Peterson's Magazine, the most popular American women's magazines of the Victorian era. Each is available in a variety of letter forms, so that you may find the most suitable for your sewing needs: scripts, floral, geometric, Old English, block, ornamental, and many more. Although eminently usable for embroidery, there are also a number of alphabets for crochet and needlepoint. You will find these motifs of the highest quality — both easy to use and productive of professional-looking results.

For traditional embroidery and sewing needs, these alphabets, monograms, and names are ideal but you will also find them applicable to a number of modern uses: for decorating blue jeans and hats, for patches, and even a variety of non-sewing needs.

Synopsis:

173 popular names, 143 monograms. 49 alphabets, borders, ribbons, more. All designed for sewing.

Synopsis:

Culled from two popular American women's magazines of the Victorian era, here are alphabets, initials, monograms, and common names in various letter forms — script, floral, geometric, Old English, block, ornamental, more.
