I'm just interested to see how the "Implements and Materials used in Modern Embroidery" in 1880 differ from what is used today.
Fabric, needles, hoop or frame, scissors, thread....
I wonder what the author would think about the newfangled sewing machines that let you program in the design you want, press a button, and - voila - you've got monogrammed pillowcases.
