Patterns, stitches, extant samples. I currently have the links organized by time period and then a general information section. It’s likely in the future I may separate out each Century for it’s own post and then organize the links by region. Right now I just keep getting distracted by all of the pretty pictures and how one link leads to another link to another link.
