“Needlework Classics - Nostalgic Designs from the Butterick Archives for Decorating Clothing And Accessories - (Suggested for Embroidery, Punch-work, Beading, Braiding, Quilting, Applique, Patchwork, Needlework, Filet Crochet)” edited by Becky Stevens Cordello, oversize hardcover book published by Butterick Publishing in 1976, 128 pages. ISBN # 0-88421-023-5
“Needlework Classics makes available to the sewer and non-sewer alike, a volume of beautiful heirloom designs suitable for a number of needlework techniques. The designs, over 140 in all dating from 1830 to 1930, were selected from The Butterick Archives, a rich source of needlework heritage. The design selections were based on artistic and historic merit and suitability for adaption to clothing, either home-sewn or ready-made. Almost all the designs can be worked in at least one additional technique beyond the one originally intended. For example, a cross-stitch sampler can become a needlepoint pattern and a geometric line design once intended for braiding is just as easily used for a quilting pattern. The combinations and adaptations are endless.”
