We are completely enamored with The Antique Pattern Library and its collection of free antique and vintage embroidery and other needlecraft patterns. The only vexing issue is which one to choose first, and the temptation is to embark on a triathlon of sampler making. I may start with D.M.C. Merk Stich (orig pub c.1890, 1908 edition, 12 plates), with a page of transportation from 1908, including bicycles, trains, jalopies, steam boats, and hot air balloons.
