Mountmellick Embroidery by Jules & Kaethe Kliot
This whitework embroidery technique is easily recognized by its bold, heavy stitches, the natural floral motifs, the absence of any openwork, the predominately surface stitches, the typical fringed edges and the general overall appearance of sculptured ivory. Traditionally worked with heavy knitting cotton on a heavy firm cotton base, the finished work was intended to be extremely durable and take many harsh washings. Common projects were pillow shams, quilts, sachet cases and general household linens.
This book is a reproduction of the complete set of seven segments of Weldon's Practical Needlework, one of the more popular late 19th century English needlework magazines and the most complete instructions for executing this work. This book also contains The Pricilla Needlework Book for 1904, which introduced Mountmellick Embroidery to the United States in 1904.
