> In addition to Liadain's list, I'd like to suggest John Nevinson's
> Catalogue of English Domestic Embroidery (OOP) and Santina Levey's
> Elizabethan Treasures:  The Hardwick Hall Textiles.  That one is available
> from B&N or Amazon, ISBN 0-8109-6353-1.  If you're interested in
> blackwork, there are several books, my favorite being Blackwork by Mary
> Gostelow (ISBN 0-486-40178-2).  If it is your thing, a nice site is the
> Blackwork Embroidery Archives at
> http://www.pacificnet.net/~pmarmor/bwarch.html
>
> Besides blackwork and canvas work, detached buttonhole stitch work
> was also very popular.  You see a lot of it on coifs and those beautiful
> flowered jackets.
>
> The Embroiderer's Flowers by Thomasina Beck (ISBN 0-7153-0692-8)
> isn't specifically about Elizabethan embroidery but does include quite a
> bit of information and several examples of patterns and extant pieces.
>
> If you're just looking for patterns I'd also suggest The New
> Carolingian Modelbook (Hedgehog Handworks still has copies) and some
> rechartings of period work by Susan Evans.  The ones I have are
> The True Perfection of Design, The Needles Excellency, and Nicolo
> Zoppino's Universali.  A couple of them say they were published by
> Falconwood Press, no address.  They're cerlox bound sheets so I don't
> imagine there were a huge number printed or that the publisher still has
> copies but used book stores may have them--that's where I found mine.
>
> Queen Elizabeth's Wardrobe Unlock'd (Arnold) has some good
> embroidery info, as does Dress in the Age of Elizabeth I (Ashelford).
