Embroidery Stitch Identification Guide

Thanks to Hands Across the Sea Samplers I have a link to a stitch identification guide developed by the Henry Art Gallery to help them in their analysis of early embroidered pieces.  
http://dig.henryart.org/embroidery-stitches/first_level_pages/default.html

I am not certain how useful this will be to needlepointers,  but it sure would be nice if it was expanded to include needlepoint stitches which have multiple names for the same stitch.  I think if we want a common database to help identify stitches to use a common name, we'll have to build it ourselves.

This link has been added to the "Stitch Diagrams and Resources" area waaaaaaay down at the bottom of Blog.

    1. Lucky you! Since I used to build databases for a living, I know how much work went into their stitch identification guide. They put in a lot of time!
