Welcome to this issue of PieceWork! It’s filled with information on two of my favorite things—magazines and books. That each feature and project includes the historical needlework context is icing on the cake.As with every issue, I learned some things that I hadn’t known about: • The tale of Rumpelstiltskin is from Germany; he’s called Tom Tit Tot in English; see “Deep-Seated Associations: Textile Threads in Language, Myths, Fairy Tales, and Novels.” • Ray Bradbury’s short story “Embroidery” is hauntingly beautiful; it was published in 1951 and is available online; see Further Resources in “Deep-Seated Associations: Textile Threads in Language, Myths, Fairy Tales, and Novels.” • Four generations of Worth men ran the haute couture House of Worth in Paris; see the review of a new gorgeous coffee-table book…

I made the Spanish lace medallion from PieceWork May/June 2018 in purple!Via FacebookNorma Bucko The instructions are from Carolyn Wetzel’s “A Medallion of Frisado de Valladolid-Style Lace to Stitch,” which is the companion project to her article, “Spanish Frisado de Valladolid Needle Lace: Treasures in Gold, Silver, and Silk.” Reader Audrey Lintner knitted a mystery project from Weldon’s Practical Needlework, Volume 1, which was featured in our blog post “Weldon’s Mystery Project: Knitted Lace or Edging,” www.interweave.com/article/needlework/weldons-mystery-project-knitted-lace-edging.The knitted-lace pattern had no illustration, and what it looks like was unknown until now.

The eyelet rows across the…

Statue of the Minotaur, found in Athens, Greece. Ethnikó Arheologikó Moussío (National Archaeological Museum), Athens. Theseus and Ariadne. Illustration from Stories of Gods and Heroes by Thomas Bulfinch with color illustrations by Sybil Tawse (1920). (Photograph courtesy of Wikimedia Commons.) Contemporary literature is filled with novels—especially mysteries—that use knitting or quilting as a background motif; the heroine runs a yarn shop, for example, and is part of a community of women who are drawn together through this interest. This type of book is a relatively new phenomenon, but stories that feature the primacy of textiles and the way they are connected with women are quite ancient. Our language is full of metaphors that demonstrate these deep, primal associations, as are the myths and fairy tales and treasured stories that…
