The best reference that is in print right now is Medieval Embroidery by
Kay Staniland. It is part of the Medieval Craftsman series. This gives
a very good overview of embroidery in the medieval period. I do not
have any more references with me at the moment. They are all at home.
Unfortunately, there are no patterns for these styles. I have a friend
who is a good artist and she draws my patterns freehand on linen. I
have also traced medieval drawings using a light box.
