New Monogram Style for
This monogram style is digitized from artwork from 1933. The elegant vertical letters are done in satin stitch, with wider areas that are filled in with a manual seed stitch - each stitch placed individually by hand. The effect of this interesting texture is reminiscent of the karakul lamb's coat - from a breed of sheep native to the deserts of Central Asia. This "fur", referred to as Persian Lamb, has a tight curly nature - durable, valuable, and used for high-fashion fur coats and collars in the 1930s and 40s.

Great for towels, the letters in this one-color monogram style have little horns and ears, and a distinct personality - also very elegant on white linens, sewn with white thread.
Satin stitch monogram letters, with a background of leaves and vines. The background is a combination of satin and double running stitches - each background design is different. When several letters are aligned the backgrounds appear continuous. There are left and right handed end designs which match the backgrounds, and can be added for a fancier look.
Another classic Victorian monogram style, digitized with plenty of underlay for a rounded look. The bottom of the long leg of each letter has a stylized leaf detail. This style looks wonderful on linens.
This satin stitch monogram style is large and great on linens and towels. It also looks quite modern, espite the fact that the artwork, which we found in Europe, was published in 1872 - more than 130 years ago!
Digitizing this monogram style is the subject of "Digitizing Letters for Monograms Part I" by Richards Jarden, Designs in Machine Embroidery magazine, September/October 2007.
