Though many of the beautiful borders in this category were created specifically for embroiderering on vestments, they are gorgeous and inspiring on any church linens. Many of them were originally offered to the public as iron-on embroidery transfers in the mid to late 1800s in the The Embroidery Pattern Catalogue, published by the Thomas Brown & Sons company of Manchester, England. Many of those traditional Christian patterns were hand drawn reproductions of designs from the 13th and 14th centuries, a period when ecclesiastical art, especially the stunning English needlework, was in its glory.
These designs are recommended for the experienced embroiderer.
