Tinctorial Plants cross stitch pattern charts

These “Tinctorial Plants” are the fourth project in the Museum and Heritage Collection. The aim of this collection is to offer embroiderers original subjects and discover different aspects of the history of French textile.

I got the idea for this theme when I visited the Textile Museum in Cholet. Apart from the rooms dedicated to the history and fabrication of the famous red handkerchiefs, this delightful museum has a small garden full of plants that are or were used for dyeing threads and fabrics. Flowers being a subject I am often asked to reproduce, it seemed like the perfect opportunity to create floral motifs related to textile.
