Medallions (Needle Adventures, Artists Collection)

"Medallions" is a chart by Needle Adventures, Artists Collection, published in 1993.  It diagrams a spot sampler that uses bargello motifs.  Ornaments made from some of the designs are shown on the cover as well.  This chart is fairly easily available today.  This site has one for sale.


Close Up

Lara is stitching one of the ornaments from this leaflet which she says is called Christmas Heirloom Victorian Gem and was available as a separate kit as part of the Christmas ornaments club.  See the article entitled Victorian Gem June 1993 for more information.

A second Bargello ornament from this leaflet was published in April 1993 under the Needle Adventures name in the Christmas Heirloom series as Medallion.

There were three other Loretta charts published by The Artists Collection under the Needle Adventures name--Bargello Fantasy, Florentine Fantasy, and Today is Someday.
