ENSAMPLARIO ATLANTIO – BLACKWORK FILLING COLLECTION PDFS FOR DOWNLOAD

At long last, and as promised.  Ensamplario Atlantio: Being a Collection of Filling Patterns Suitable for Blackwork Embroidery is here in PDF format!

I have to admit that my ambition ran away with me.  The entire thing is 40 pages long, with 35 plates of designs – over 220 or so individual all-over or filling patterns for double running stitch embroidery.  Some are very large repeats and would be better suited for free-use, others are smaller in scale and would work well as fillings in traditional outline/infilled blackwork (like on the pix of the cover, below):

The book ended up being SO large that I was unable to upload it, and downloading would be problematic for most people.  So I have cut it up into four parts:

I would dearly love to see any projects that use fillings from the collection.  Since I’m making this available as a free download, seeing what my pattern “children” are up to in the real world is my biggest reward.

And also a reminder – just because this is being made available freely doesn’t mean that I have relinquished my author’s rights.   This book may not be re-issued, re-posted, or sold by others without my specific permission.  I ask that needlework instructors wishing to use the thing get in touch with me so I can keep a log of by whom/when the book has been circulated.

  4. muito obrigada por sua gentileza de liberar seu livro para downloads, There Moura.

  5. I love these samples so much! Thank you for making them, and freely allowing others to use them! I made two presents for my mom for Mothers Day with two of your patterns. I would be happy to send you a picture of the completed work, but your ‘contact me’ link above doesn’t seem to be working.

    1. Thanks! I am delighted that you’re enjoying the designs. There are lots more coming. My sequel to TNCM will be out before the end of this year.

      I don’t have a clickable contact me link – it was removed because of a spam deluge. But if you substitute in standard email address symbols and spacing you can reach me at kbsalazar (at) gmail (dot) com I would love to see your pieces!

  6. Hi Kim,
    I co-write Upper Valley Fiber Crafts, a (non-monetized) blog about all things fiber in the Connecticut River valley of central VT/NH, and was hoping to put our first tutorial/free pattern up this month: a blackwork map of the area with each town in a different filling stitch. Would it be all right to use filling patterns of yours in that design? The regions will be small, so they would be among your least complicated patterns. I would certainly credit you, and point our visitors here, in both the tutorial post and the pattern PDF.

    If you would rather I not, I will forbear from looking more at your work, and create my own (likely more dull) fillings. Thank you!
    Rebecca

    1. Hi Rebecca! The project sounds nifty and certainly do-able. Please write to me privately at kbsalazar (at) gmail (dot) com on this. I don’t want to clutter the airwaves with private arrangements. Happy to have you aboard. -K.

    Many thanks again
