Machine Embroidery Designs

The classic designs in this category were originally brought together and published in the mid-1850s as The Embroidery Pattern Catalogue by Thomas Brown & Sons of Manchester, England.
They were offered then as iron-on embroidery transfers created specifically for embroidery on vestments and other church linens.
Many of those hand drawn designs, and there were thousands of them, were produced in England during the 13th and 14th centuries when ecclesiastical art was in its glory. It was during this time that English embroidery houses were more respected than those of any other country, including Sicily and Italy. English embroidery was known as Opus Anglicanum, English work, and referred directly to the fine needlework of Medieval England done for ecclesiastical use on vestments, hangings, Communion and mass sets and other liturgical linens.
Our goal is to stay as true as possible to the original artist's hand drawn pattern when digitizing these beautiful and historic Christian designs for modern machine embroidery.
