New source Polish Patterns
- I've made some of the patterns from this company and find the
instructions easy to follow and the historical notes very good and
well researched. It's nice to see a pattern company looking beyond
England. - Despina

Does anyone know when the Russian three bar cross came about? I am
looking to do some armor decorating (c. 10th - 12th century) and was
wondering what sort of crosses were being used. I have found some
discussion on the matter, but no clear dates.
