To redeem the monotony of plain surfaces has ever been the aim of all the arts,
but especially that of the needle, which being the oldest expression of decorative
intention, has, from the earliest time, been very dependent on its groundwork for its ultimate results.

This is particularly the case in embroideries of the type of what is commonly known as Jacobean,
where the ground fabric is extensively visible, as it is also in that wondrous achievement, the Bayeux tapestry worked in coarse wools upon homespun linen and therefore quite miscalled "

Inaccuracy in nomenclature is one of the stumbling blocks the student encounters, and the
tendency of the day to classify "styles" by the restricted formula of monarchical periods is likewise misleading.

No style is ever solely distinctive of one reign, or even one century, the law of evolution rules the arts as it does nature, there is always a correlation between styles in art and circumstances of existence that is productive of gradual changes of taste, therefore, pronounced evidences in design are, actually, the culminating point in a course of combined influences which have reached the period of individual expression.

Crewel work of the type of Jacobean, was the outcome of that earlier wool embroidery that even
in the zenith of fame of the Ecclesiastical broderers still quietly went on its way.
