17th Century Techniques for the 21st Century

Mary Corbet clued me in to a video starring Alison Cole demonstrating 17th Century embroidery techniques. You may not be stitching any reproduction embroidery but you can bet some of these techniques will work for your needlepoint!

Alison Cole is famous for her goldwork and books, by the way.  If you have time to have your socks blown off, check her website.
