Whether you are a historian, a scholar, an ecclesiastical pundit, or an artist … or just a have a passing interest, this monograph / short book will rip your heart out and stomp on it.

To read the joy of dedication and delight in the works and then hear of the anguish and despair at all that was lost in the war and the improbability of replacing or restoring such works of beauty, is enough to anguish even the most jaded of us can not ignore.

OK so what is this tome about? (now that we have established that it will make you feel horrible to read it)

This deceptively short book packs a punch in content, giving us a good analysis of the colors, methods, history, and justification for methods and traditions of Church Embroidery and Vestment Making.

Focusing mostly on the UK churches and USA churches we learn how things are done and why, even getting a rolling commentary on materials and ending with embroidery frames for vestments.

This is not a detailed how to manual for beginning embroidery folks but rather a reference for the historian, the mature fabric worker, those who want to learn and keep traditions and history alive.

I would read it again, but hearing of all the beauty lost in WW II bombings yanked my emotions around too much.

Read it at least once, then keep it as a worthy reference.

Customer Testimonials and Reviews:

Hi, I just want to tell you I received the CD today! I absolutely love your elegant packaging! I think I will get another CD to give as a gift for my best friend who is crazy about crochet! Sue H.

Dear folks at Patterns-on-CD, thank you for shipping the cd out so quickly. I am new at crocheting and I am finding the instructions very clear and easy to follow! Your CD is so easy to use. I can print out just the pages I am working on and scribble my notes on the print-out without worry. My dog chewed part of the pattern sheet I was working on, but no worries, I just print out another sheet! I am keeping the print outs in a 3 ring binder and even printed the lace images I like for the binder cover. Thank you for making this rare antique book available on CD ROM!
