    Pattern Books
    These beautiful pattern books contain over 15,000 different motifs developed by countless artists over numerous centuries. Britta Johanson has catalogued patterns into categories in several delightful little books.

     

    Originally published by a cross stitch group in Sweden, their use can easily be expanded to many types of weaving and embroidery, as well as beading, knitting, tiling, or any other artwork that thrives on gridded patterns.

     

    They are the most outstanding resource of this kind currently available and we thank Britta for her unique and unparalleled gift to the world!

     

    Britta Johanson is a textile designer/artist and has worked with the visual arts, church textiles, and textile consumer goods for over thirty years.
