Pergamano Pattern Books


There are many beautiful and inspiring books and patterns available for parchment craft at the moment, sometimes it’s hard to know where to start. One of my favourite collections are from Pergamano M series Pattern Books. They are mini collections of themed designs, usually 6 items from some of the most talented Pergamano designers. Usually the pattern books have a theme, for example:  3D designs, wall hangings, lace work and then there are collections of animals, birds, fruit and flowers. Even themes such as hobbies, religious designs, weddings and christenings, oriental and asian. Also there are pattern books that teach a specialist technique, or using felt pens, inks etc.  I have made a quick list of my favourite, older pattern books, still available.

I have found the books have good, clear instructions, guiding you step by step. They are all exceptional designs and even though they have been around a while there are always new people discovering parchment craft. I hope you like them too.
