Victorian Charted Tapestry Patterns: Designs for Needlepoint & Cross Stitch
The lure of the exotic, far-off East was a source of inspiration for everything from fashion to furnishings during the Victorian era. These 24 richly colored charts are a perfect example of “Oriental” design adapted to Western tastes.This collection is reproduced from German textile designer Friedrich Fischbach’s work titled “Orientalische Bunt-Stickerei-Vorlagen” (Colorful Oriental Embroidery Patterns) published around 1870. The patterns were printed in full color on cards and gathered into portfolios.Geometric repeating patterns, stylized floral motifs and borders charted on graph paper are a universal language which can be translated into needlepoint, counted cross stitch and beadwork, with each square on the pattern representing a single stitch. For inspiration I’ve included photos of an example of Victorian needlepoint worked from similar charts along with a page of plain graph paper to aid you in adapting these designs to your own creations.

Victorian Monograms Motifs & Borders: Charted Designs for Needlepoint & Cross Stitch
Monograms have always been a fashionable way for embroiderers to personalize fashion and home decor. In contrast to the subtle white-on-white embroidery often found on bed linens and handkerchiefs, the exuberantly colorful designs that follow are more modern than you might expect from Victorian needlework.This collection is reproduced from German textile designer Friedrich Fischbach’s work titled “Bunt-Stickerei-Vorlagen” (colorful embroidery patterns) published around 1870. These individual letters, entwined monograms, motifs and borders are a remarkable resource for modern needleworkers to use on their own projects. Designs charted on graph paper are a universal language which can be translated into needlepoint and counted cross stitch, with each square on the pattern representing a single stitch. Author's Note: Please be aware that older alphabets may not contain all letters. For example, "I" and "J" were often considered interchangeable, and many alphabets contain only one or the other, not both. The elaborate diagonal monogram series ("L" and "M" are shown on the front cover) does not include "J", "X" or "Y".

Charted Peasant Designs from Saxon Transylvania (Dover Embroidery, Needlepoint)
The cross-stitch designs of the Transylvanian Saxon peasants are among the most fascinating embroideries in existence. This collection of 195 charted designs, originally collected prior to World War I by Emil Sigerus, is an invaluable source of unusual and interesting ideas of modern cross-stitchers and other craftspeople.These ornate, highly stylized designs cover a vast array of moods and historical epochs, from the medieval (mounted knights, falconers, winged horses, dragons, gryphons) to the strikingly modern (abstract designs, unusual geometric forms, florals) and range in complexity from simple patterns composed of a few lines to very intricate symmetrical designs. Portions of these designs are also a source of many repeat and border patterns and spot decorations.The designs are printed on a chart so that they can easily be used for needlepoint, Fair Isle knitting, rug-hooking, or any other form of counted-thread embroidery. And because the chart makes it easy to vary the size of each design, you can use the patterns to decorate anything from small pillows to bedspreads or wallhangings. Other craftspeople can transfer the patterns onto wood, metal, canvas, or mosaic to achieve stimulating and unusual effects.
