Embroidery Chart

For centuries, lined and graph paper charts have been domestically and commercially available for creating counted thread embroidery designs, especially in cross stitch and tent stitch. Until the middle of the nineteenth century, coloured charts in Europe and America had to be hand painted in order to indicate the correct colours. Later in the century, machine printed charts became available.
