Re: Pin Pricks



I ran across some pricked designs at the Winona (Minnesota) Historical
Society Archive. I was reorganizing their scrapbook collection and several
women had made both books of embroidery samples and pin prickings. There
were also several books made by children, each with the same, presumably
prescribed, contents, including embroidery and pin prickings. My assumption
is that this was technique that is related to embroidery, practiced in the
same time and places. But maybe it was still pattern transfer?
