Product Details

Editorial Reviews


• Offers the first inclusive study of the relevance of needlework to Victorian women of all classes and skill levels through all the decades of the British Victorian period

• Covers the types of needlework practiced by Victorian woman, as well as their tools, available resources for patterns and inspiration, and changes over time

• Describes with clarity and detail techniques of specific genres, such as crochet, knitting, lacework, Berlin wool work, embroidery, patchwork, and quilting

• Explores literary contexts and examples of needlework in the Victorian novel

• Patterns and illustrations from women's periodicals and pattern books of the time provide a window into Victorian life that will be especially intriguing to the legions who practice these crafts today

• Quotations from memoirs, works of fiction, and poetry allow readers to share the experiences of women of the period


"Needlework enthusiasts as well as students of women's history and the Victorian era will welcome this authoritative look at the practice and importance of needlework in women's lives during Britain's Victorian era. The engaging text, richly embellished with quotes from primary sources, takes us into a world where the needle arts were at once occupation, hobby, and identity. It's all here—from descriptions of the punishing labor often required to earn a living through needlework, to an explanation of the myriad needlework genres, to specifics on the tools of trade." (Katherine J. Adams Quilt Curator, Briscoe Center for American History, The University of Texas at Austin)
