for $ 29.00 USD each

This book is a collection of freehand matyo embroidery patterns from original folk art embroidered clothing and bed linen items found in Hungarian museums. The traceable pattern sheets for embroideries on 28 different items are presented in color. These traditional embroideries are from the early years of matyo folk art traditions, when only a few colors were used: blue, red and white and the decorations were placed less densely on the fabric than in later periods.

2 pages illustrate the stitches used with clear drawings. Text in Hungarian only. 14 pages + 40 foldout pattern sheets.

Softcover, used book. Published in 1978 in Hungary.
