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.
