Description of Pride and Prejudice Needle Book

The neede book is not a light-hearted quick-to-complete project.

It is a time-consuming labor of love for a most celebrated English Novel. Next year Pride and Prejudice will be 210 years old.

You can make the needle book on congress cloth, as I did, or

on any number of linens. I stitched the needle book in Soie d'Alger, 100/3 and Gold Kreinik braid but you can choose threads to match your linen. Please scroll down to read more about linen choices.


The instructions are 38 pages long with 11 Oversize Graphs, a title page and 2 color photos. The instructions include detailed explanations for all of the finishing.

Further Comments

I spent much of 2012 obsessed with making this needle book. I loved every minute of figuring it out and stitching it so that I could have a Jane Austen Party for the whole of 2013, and that's what I did.  This is the first time in 9 years that I have sold it. I am bringing it back now because of requests.

One of my hesitations in selling the pattern: I no longer have my needle book, bookmark or any of the accessories I also made. About 5 years ago I gave them to a small collections library with the very good fortune of having first editions of all six of Jane Austen's novels. I thought, perfect place for my Pride and Prejudice, Needle Book Edition.

The very diligent Maxine Martin began and completed the Needle Book this year, as a part of my 15-Stitches a Day Program. When she finished it, she said to me, she would like to lead a group of Janeite Stitchers on Facebook.  That's when I decided, OK, I will sell it once again.

Next year is the 210th anniversary of Pride and Prejudice. I suggest you  put on an audio book and work your way through the Needle Book.


Details from Maxine

She stitched her needle book on congress cloth. The measurements are 6 1/4" tall x 4 1/4" wide. Thanks, Maxine.



An Important Word about Ground Fabrics

In the instructions are suggestions of different ground fabrics including congress cloth and various linens. The congress cloth is still available, with the addition in recent years of the color Soft Ivory.

I made my own Needlebook on congress cloth and  all of the other linens listed in the pattern are extinct now,  

My expertise is not in linen; if you wish to make the needle book on a linen ground, I suggest you contact Cathe Ray for suggestions in possibilities and also for coodinating threads.


Must have U.S. address.
