An important collection of beautiful, historically significant iron-on transfer designs from the Embroiderers' Guild. The use of hot iron transfers in embroidery has a long and fascinating history, but they've often been looked down upon by serious embroiderers and have therefore been largely overlooked. They were, however, produced in large numbers and much of the work created from them was of a very high quality. An important though largely forgotten part of the Embroiderers' Guild legacy is the huge collection of hot iron transfers dating back to the early 20th century that were created by members of the Guild. They fell out of favour in the 1960s and the Guild stopped producing them. Many transfers were stored away and haven't been seen since those times; others were simply thrown away. This publication, which consists of one booklet of transfers and one booklet of worked examples, showcases specially chosen examples worked in specific ways as an inspiration to readers to either follow, or work in their own way. This is a massively important collection of beautiful embroidery transfers that will excite embroiderers, textile artists, historians and lovers of traditional and vintage embroidery everywhere.

From the author of How Paris Became Paris, a sweeping history of high finance, the origins of high fashion, and a pair of star-crossed lovers in 18th-century France. Paris, 1719. The stock market is surging and the world's first millionaires are buying everything in sight. Against this backdrop, two families, the Magoulets and the Chevrots, rose to prominence only to plummet in the first stock market crash. One family built its name on the burgeoning financial industry, the other as master embroiderers for Queen Marie-Thérèse and her husband, King Louis XIV. Both patriarchs were ruthless money-mongers, determined to strike it rich by arranging marriages for their children. But in a Shakespearean twist, two of their children fell in love. To remain together, Louise Magoulet and Louis Chevrot fought their fathers' rage and abuse. A real-life heroine, Louise took on Magoulet, Chevrot, the police, an army regiment, and the French Indies Company to stay with the man she loved. Following these families from 1600 until the Revolution of 1789, Joan DeJean recreates the larger-than-life personalities of Versailles, where displaying wealth was a power game; the sordid cells of the Bastille; the Louisiana territory, where Frenchwomen were forcibly sent to marry colonists; and the legendary "Wall Street of Paris," Rue Quincampoix, a world of high finance uncannily similar to what we know now. The Queen's Embroiderer is both a story of star-crossed love in the most beautiful city in the world and a cautionary tale of greed and the dangerous lure of windfall profits. And every bit of it is true.

The Embroiderers' Guild was founded in 1906 and has in its collection embroideries from all over the world. These wonderful works, which somehow survived through the ages, could be said to be one of the most important groups of embroideries assembled in one place. Stitched pieces and fragments were gathered together by early members of the Guild and inserted into portfolios that were circulated among members.Nature has always been a huge source of inspiration to embroiderers and this fantastic book showcases the Embroiderers' Guild's huge collection of embroidered birds through the ages. From the subtle shades seen in crewelwork and the Buratto lace of Europe to the glittering silk, metal and beetle wing designs of China, Japan and India, author Dr Annette Collinge presents a beautiful array of stitchwork that truly is a feast for the eyes.Featuring full-colour photographs and extended captions, items are shown also in full along with detailed images to show off the stunning stitched birds at their best. These wonderful embroidered treasures are as varied as badges, postcards, aprons, wall hangings, dresses, cushion covers and samplers, some of which date back to the 17th century.Collected from many different countries, this exquisite book is an opportunity to see fabulous works that are very rarely seen in public. Mary Corbet, of Needle 'n Thread, said in her review of the first book in this series:"e;Embroidered Treasures: Flowers is a fantastic book! It's inspirational. It's informative. It's beautiful!"e;For most of us who will never see a collection of embroideries like these up close and personal, this lovely book is the best way to experience them and learn about them. We can take what we learn and apply it to our own needlework pursuits. Or we can just enjoy the beauty of the pieces and appreciate the history behind them.It's a great book for your reference library..."e;
