Kannik's Korner designs and publishes authentic, documented, historic clothing patterns for use in Living History, Museums and Theater.
We specialize in historic costume of the eighteenth and early nineteenth century, in
particular from 1750 to1820. We strive to help you produce the most
authentic historic clothing possible.
We also specialize in hand sewing and needlework, have published several books on "plain sewing"
and tailoring stitches and techniques, and we produce a line of counted cross stitch kits depicting historical places.
A note to our friends and
While we are unable to get out to do living
history events, our thoughts are struggling to imagine when we will
be seeing our friends again, getting out to enjoy sharing our love
of history, and enjoying all the benefits of traveling to historic
sites. Try to stay positive during this time at home, and turn your
minds toward enjoying the opportunity to create new period clothing
for yourself and your family. This is a great time to pick up the
projects you may have wanted to do and especially those for which
you already purchased materials. We are being told to stick to our
routine. I suggest a new routine! Add in some sewing time, or
creative time to make other accessories. If you don't already have
one, create a good sewing kit, or sewing bag for both your common
tools and small projects. There are suggestions for doing this in
"The Lady's Guide to Plain Sewing", available in paper or on Kindle.

Great News for
The long awaited printed textile book Wearable Prints, 1760-1860,
History, Materials and Mechanics, by Susan W. Greene, is finally in
print, and will begin shipping January 28, 2014.
This is a very special book, with valuable information for anyone working
with textiles of this period. It will be the standard "go-to" book for
determining whether a modern printed fabric is appropriate for use in
reproduction garments. It will also be valuable in identifying original
printed textiles and learning the processes required to create them.
The retail list price is $100.00 but Amazon is listing it for less, so
please click through to the right and check out the detailed information.
This beautiful 600 page hardback is in limited quantity and it is doubtful
it will be reprinted for many years.
Please support Susan Greene's years of research on this project.
Be sure to get your copy! Don't delay!
I appreciate your click through from our web site.
