“Couronnes du Pays de Schwalm” (Schwalm crowns) are large symmetrical satin stitch motifs with which the embroiderers from the Schwalm “crowned” their textiles. In the widest sense, they are based on the arbor vitae motif (with or without a bird) which is often combined with hearts and/or tulips.

Luzine Happel too crowns the extensive research work she has done to date on Schwalm embroidery with the two publications in ring binders "Couronnes du Pays de Schwalm" (SKU 1608F) and "Prestieuses Couronnes de Schwalm " (SKU 1609F).

The amount of material is simply overwhelming: this volume contains 96 “crowns” (some with variations) and numerous little extra ornaments in cross stitch (especially letters, numbers and bird motifs).

Another 66 larger “crowns” are to be found in the second volume (SKU 1609F).

For each pattern, an illustration and a drawing of the contours serve to guide the embroiderer.
