These beautiful and inspiring pattern books contain over 15,000 different motifs developed by countless artists over centuries. Britta Johanson has catalogued patterns into categories in several delightful little books. These "pixelated" patterns were embroidered, woven, or knitted around the world in the 1800s or earlier. Originally published by a cross stitch group in Sweden, they are useful for 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 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.
