Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book researches the lives of those men and women who created the tapestries, bed curtains, church vestments and other items during the Medieval era. It covers how they got paid, how long some project might take, how the families of the workers were compensated for the sometimes years their family member might be away from home. Really interesting scholarship and quite easy to read.

Found the first of this series at the Rylands Library University of Manchester, UK and was delighted to learn there was a series on medieval craftspeople. Loved the first one and am enjoying this one.

Format: Paperback
I was looking for a history/day to day happenings of embroiderers for historical reenactment, and this book has the history, but it is fairly general and mostly ends in the 1300's, and I was looking for Renaissance times. In addition, I was looking wages, and there doesn't seem to be much of that. It did point out that most embroidery was for religous functions, and had lots of samples of such. It was mostly an overview, and didn't have the details that I was looking for...For what it's worth, I haven't found anything better.
