About

My sisters, me and local stitchy friends are collectors of old needlework books.  Our interest ranges from 16th century to modern day samplers.  Our favorites are samplers from the Netherlands.

This site is a library of needlework books, charts and patterns that are in our collection… an attempt to organize the stash.  It’s also a learning process about trying various ways use this CMS interface to create libraries and galleries.

Stage 1 will be organizing Publications, Charts and Patterns.

  • Publications… a list of publications in the library with a link to each publication.
    • Each publication will be a PAGE (entitled:  pub_month_year)
    • Update 3/4/15… We thought about making each pub a page, however, pages cannot be categorized or tagged.   Since each pub page needs to be categorized by publication title, it should be a blog page.
  • Charts… An alphabetical listing of charts by designer
    • Each designer will have it’s own page…
      • first part of the page will be album of pictures of design with title in caption
      • second part of the page will be list of designs by title  (needed for the search engine)
    • Search by designer or title
  • Books… a main page with a list of authors/publishers.
    • Author/Publication Page…. Book covers that link to book description anchored within the page.
    • The book cover will link to a review of the book and maybe picture album of inside of book.

As it grows… so will ideas to expand.
