Book from Project Gutenberg: Beeton's Book of Needlework. Beeton's Book of Needlework, by Isabella Beeton, published in , Home, Preface, Table of contents, Chapters I - 16, is a classic reference book for all.

This book will undoubtedly give you something to mull over and help you in your art s: For me, I bought this specifically for the tatting sections. However, when I saw how much information was in here for sewing, crochet, embroidery, knitting, netting, lace making, point lace, etc, etc ,etc , I was exceedingly pleased to have such a wealth of information available - all in the same book!

I'll definitely be getting a lot of use out of this book! I hope they put it back into print and perhaps with updated photos: I bought a used copy - it's in great shape: This is interesting, because they have reprinted how the patterns appeared in the 's.


If you are interested in historical patterns, a good addition to your library. I shall be ordering from these people again. One person found this helpful.

It is everything that I expected. I'm a reenactor and historian, and I wasn't aware that this volume had been published. It was published One of my top needlework references. It was published in the mid 's and you do have to learn to read it because it is not the same as modern needlework books.

But it is a treasure trove of designs and techniques as well as showing the fashions of the time.

Of great interest to anyone interested in Victorian needlework. Contains patterns and instructions for all kinds of lace, crochet, knitting, wool work, embroidery, monograms, etc. I am mostly interested in embroidery; that section was not very inspiring in this book, so I presented it to a lacemaker, who was wild for it. The quality of this reprint is first rate; period illustrations don't always come out well but these did.

A classic needlework book.
