600 (+/-) Glorious Cross Stitch & Embroidery Patterns
- Greetings & Salutations!
My name is Anistas Augustinov (MKA Natalie Lynn) and I have just
joined, gleefully, the Slavic Interest Group. As a person of slavic
ancestry (Ukrainian and Russian) I have been blessed with a fairly
unique familial hand-me-down, my mother's pattern book. The cross-
stitch and embroidery book is about 30 years old, written entirely
in Ukrainian and bearing about 600 different visual, gridded
patterns, animals, geometrics, florals etc. large and small. There
is a hearty combination of embroidery and cross-stitch patterns,
keeping with period, and more modern themes. While the binding is
going on the book, I will gladly scan patterns for anyone needing
them for their own needlework projects! Afterwards, I am going to
have the book rebound (anyone do this?) It is my goal to scan the
entire book as it bears no visible copyright, categorize and place
the images up on my file server. As you can appreciate this is a
pretty huge task. Until I can get around to doing that, I will be
more than happy to scan any theme that anyone likes provided it is
in the book.
I haven't seen any pattern books like this before, and I know that
embroidery patterns are in constant demand so I would like to help
out anyone I possibly can.
Please email me with any requests that you have (Hey Nat, I need a
rooster pattern), and I will keep you in touch with everyone as to
scanning the 140pages of this book :) I have uploaded a sample
dragonfly pattern here:
In addition I have a patterns for a sorochka and a korsetka to fit
about a size fourteen and I would be more than happy to scan those
out if anyone needs them.
- Dear Ani,
When you have rebound the book and are ready to make copies, I will buy one

I would love to have get a copy of the patterns from the book that you have.
It is so hard to find anything from Ukraine.
