YesterYearCrafts.com, a blog that provides detailed information on crafting, sewing, and quilting, now has a message board with free membership and new blog entries titled "Various Types of Quilting" and "History of Hardanger Embroidery."
The page entitled "Various Types of Quilting" from YesterYearCrafts.com includes information on the history and methods of quilting. Possibly dating as far back as ancient Egypt, modern quilting has changed due to advances in technology. According to this blog post, quilting has reached levels of complexity and style that make quilts truly "works of art." Patterns and styles of quilting mentioned in the post include the Welsh style, Amish patterns, and patchwork quilting.
"History of Hardanger Embroidery" details the history of this type of embroidery and how it developed as a style. Hardanger embroidery, according to YesterYearCrafts.com, makes use of satin stitches to form the shapes of familiar patterns. Commonly, Hardanger embroidery is also known as Whitework embroidery because of the frequent use of white linen fabric. This type of embroidery has been practiced in America since Scandinavian immigrants introduced it in the 1800s.
