Embroiderers' Guild Transfers Collection: 90 rediscovered treasures to transfer & stitch (Embroidered Treasures)
Author: by Annette Dr. Collinge
An important collection of beautiful, historically significant iron-on transfer designs from the Embroiderers’ Guild. The use of hot iron transfers in embroidery has a long and fascinating history, but they’ve often been looked down upon by serious embroiderers and have therefore been largely overlooked.
They were, however, produced in large numbers and much of the work created from them was of a very high quality. An important though largely forgotten part of the Embroiderers’ Guild legacy is the huge collection of hot iron transfers dating back to the early 20th century that were created by members of the Guild.
They fell out of favour in the 1960s and the Guild stopped producing them. Many transfers were stored away and haven’t been seen since those times; others were simply thrown away. This publication, which consists of one booklet of transfers and one booklet of worked examples, showcases specially chosen examples worked in specific ways as an inspiration to readers to either follow, or work in their own way.
