1909 reprint of Joh. Sibmacher’s 1604 book of charted patterns


Johan Sibmacher’s 1604 “Kreuzstich-Muster” or needlework pattern book contains classic charted designs used by embroiderers and sampler makers for centuries. This is a 1909 German reprint of the original book, containing all 36 pattern plates (pages). 97 patterns are charted on graph paper.

Hardcover book measuring 6-3/4″ by 8-1/4″ with 38 pages. In very good condition: cover has light soiling and a small reddish mark, and minor edge wear. The interior is excellent, the paper is still supple and not at all brittle. Binding is still excellent. A rare opportunity to own a piece of antique needlework history!
