Il Ricamo, 10 March 1907 added!


Today I managed to add photos of a new (that is old, very old) issue of "Il Ricamo" magazine... It's issue No 10, dating 10 March 1907. Unfortunately the issue was in almost desperate conditions and 4 pages were missing; well, actually only two of them would be interesting for embroiderers as the last two pages are of advertisement (that is funny and interestingin itself somethims, anyway it's not a great loss). Luckily the big sheet of additional patterns was there, as well as a nice page of cross-stitch monogram.
This issue can now be downloaded from this page of Italian Needlecrafts.

Ciao Elena. I just wanted to say hello!! Hope your mum is not too bad..I usually have a look at your interesting blog. I think that you are doing a great job with all those ancient patterns. It's our embroidery history!! I like the "M" letter ha, ha...but I also like corners and all the rest.. Sorry for my English...
Ciao e buona serata
See you soon
Monica

Grazie Monica, il commento puoi anche lasciarlo in italiano se vuoi! :-) Sei molto gentile, il lavoro sulle riviste in questo periodo va un po' a rilento ma spero di recuperare. Mia mamma ha 80 e una serie di problemi; devo imparare a rioganizzarmi!

Posso chiederti come mai scrivi in inglese? Sei Italo-Americana?
Ciao, scusa se sono indiscreta

See you
Monica

Ciao Monica, io sono italiana, ma scrivo in inglese perche' la maggior parte delle persone che mi leggono non sono italiane... Sono iscritta a tante liste e gruppi in gran parte stranieri, quindi e' la scelta piu' pratica!
