- I'm looking for examples of Polish Historical embroidery. I can find
information on Ukranian and German emboridery and references
to "Polish" embroidery but no pictures or examples. I'm not looking
for the "folk embroidery" that most are familiar with but something
from the late 14 to early 1500's.
- Search for the author Grazyna J. Kozaczka. She has written "Old
World Stitchery For Today" which has a wealth of information on
period embroidery. Unfortunately the projects are then applied
to modern use. She has also written "Polish Embroidery Workbook
with patterns" in 1982 which has period designs, offers period
techniques, and suggestions on how to combine them. The ancient
Polish paper cutting designs offered inspiration for embroidery
then, so using them now for inspiration would be appropriate.
Best of luck!
