Embroidery Designs - Strawberries

I'm trying to keep track of different types of embroidery motifs for easy reference. Here are some strawberry designs; I plan to keep updating them when I have time.

From 'A Scholehouse for the Needle' (1624):


From 'The Trevellyon Miscellany' (1608):



  1. Thanks Cathy! Lots more to find and put in as well. As you would know, strawberries were a very popular Elizabethan motif and Queen Elizabeth I had lots of images painted with embroidered articles featuring them. I just need to find more hours in the day!

  2. Wonderful job. I love those strawberries and design as well.. Thanks a lot.
