Embroidery Frames - High Medieval

Postby Brendan C » Mon Mar 09, 2015 12:41 am

Hi folks - have also put this in the General History section; any help greatly appreciated

An enquiry from a friend of mine - is there anyone who supplies medieval embroidery frames?

Many thanks

Brendan C

Hi Brendan

Debs got hers from Simon Dunn it's a simple one she has since seen a design for a rather complex one with a stand.


There’s a country in Europe where they treat their ex soldiers with pride no waits for medical treatment after injuries received during service, no amensia from the government. Cant for the life of me recall where it is but I know exactly where it is not.

If you find one, could you let me know, please? I'm trying to do embroidery at shows and would like something authentic ish. Thanks.


My mind not only wanders - sometimes it leaves completely!

You need a pegged slate frames: principle below, but without fancy turning.

Examples

http://www.royal-needlework.org.uk/shop/index/1 - cheaper, but doubtless subsidised price more victorian

http://www.siestaframes.com/acatalog/Slate_Frames_.html - blocky construction, but uncontraversial

ebay: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/NEW-ITA-18x18 ... 463873e7f7 - again blocky, ubcontraversial, cheaper

etc etc etc.
