Until now, no one book has fully explored the rich tradition of needlework tools made in Holland and exported worldwide. This first published history, by an acknowledged expert, of the tools and accessories used by needlewomen, from the Middle Ages to the 20th century, presents collectors and enthusiasts with a full and fascinating account of the subject. This book not only gives you the chance to see the detail of these intricate items, with nearly 500 illustrations, it also sets them in a wider historical context -- placing the tools in the hands of the women who, through the centuries, would have used them and explaining how these tools work. This book will excite and interest collectors worldwide.
