Antique Needlepoint for Sale

Susan Johnson of SJ Designs doesn't only sell beads and sequins and chart antique designs for modern needlepointers, she sells antique pieces she finds here and there, including some nearly 150 year old examples of needlepoint.  You can see quite a few interesting examples of historical needlepoint in her Etsy shop.

My favorites are the needlepoint in the Medieval style dated c. 1860…

…and the beaded needlepoint on perforated paper which is probably ten years older.

You may be smitten by the samplers or the antique tools, though. It's a fun browse, so pour a cuppa and enjoy.
