Welcome to this Friday’s VTNS (Vintage Textile and Needlework Sellers) Fan Freebie!

I’ve found some very old cross stitch charts of bunnies. These are from the late 1800s. They are part of the DMC Library, Point De Croix (Cross Stitch) Nouveaux Dessin (New Design) Series, edited by Thérèse de Dillmont (1846–1890).

Thérèse was an Austrian needleworker and writer. An important pioneer in the enterprise of hobby needlework in the late nineteenth century.

You’ll see her name abbreviated as TH. DE Dillmont on publications.

Since her name was such an asset to the DMC company, even after her death DMC continued to use her name on many of their published books.

Encyclopedia of Needlework is her most famous work and has been translated into 17 languages. My copy is pictured below. I bought it many years ago in an antique shop. Wouldn’t part with it. There have been many editions published since it first came out in 1886.

Mine doesn’t have a date and I haven’t researched to find out when it may have been published. It’s a small book, only 3½ x 5½ inches and quite thick with over 800 pages.

It can be downloaded for free from Project Gutenburg, a website that offers over 50,000 free ebooks, most in the public domain that have been digitized by volunteers.

If you’d like a hardcover copy of her book, Amazon has several from third-party sellers, some do look like the 1950s edition.

You’ll find many similar to mine for sale on Ebay as well. The prices are all over the place. From $12.75 to $100.00. I paid $25 for mine and it’s in pretty good shape.

Here are the cross stitch patterns. They’re in color and look like a lot of fun.

To save these cute designs, simply click on them. They’ll open in a new window and there you can use the right click menu to “save image as” or print using your computer’s options. You can also use the green print friendly button at the bottom of this post.

Welcome to the VTNS Fan Freebie!

Today’s freebie is from an early 1900’s Star Needlework Journal. I have quite a few Star Needlework Journals and I love flipping through the pages seeing all of the different kinds of projects in them.

This one is a cross stitched Daffodil Luncheon Set. Designs for a tablecloth and napkins. It’s pictured on the front cover.

A linen with an even weave is used for the cross stitching. The project uses American Thread Company’s “Silkline” Art Thread and Crochet Cotton.

Since the American Thread Company has been out of business for a long time, I don’t have a conversion chart for the numbers but the colors are listed next to the symbols.

Here are the diagrams and instructions:

Welcome to this Friday’s VTNS Fan Freebie!

This set of Cross Stitch monograms will be useful for personalizing gifts.

They can be made any size, depending on the size of the cross stitch. To make the letters larger or smaller, redraw in squares to desired size.

The position of the stitches may be marked on the fabric, or if threads of fabric are pronounced, stitches may be made by following threads without marking.
