Introducing a new title in the Vintage Cross Stitch series

Our beloved book series, Vintage Cross Stitch, returns this month with a new title: Vintage Cross Stitch Flowers

The book, curated by Valentina Sardu, features wonderful full-color illustrations: 60 tables in large format, 410 x 290 mm, with over 90 cross stitch floral motifs, retraced from original charts published during the Nineteenth century and at the beginning of the Twentieth century.

Here you can see some of the antique charts used for this project…

 

Take a look at the video preview (watch in HD for a better resolution):

One of the patterns, a gorgeous cushion with poppies, has been also featured on the cover of the Italian magazine RicAmare (June 2017).

Discover all the titles in the Vintage Cross Stitch series!
