ARE now universally known, and the process is acknowledged

to be the most perfect, simple, and expeditious manner of

Tracing Designs for all kinds of Embroidery. One of the great

recommendations of these Transferring Papers is that they enable

Ladies to trace upon their own materials ; this being much less

expensive than purchasing ready-traced Articles. New Designs are

frequently being issued, and can be purchased from all Berlin Wool

and Fancy Repositories. Ladies, with a taste for designing, can form

beautiful groups by cutting and arranging flowers, &c, from various

patterns. To do this most effectively, gum the small pieces (when

cut) on to a sheet of paper, arranging them as desired, and, when the

group is formed, transfer in the usual manner.

In order to bring the large variety of patterns within the dimen-

sions of a small book, it has been necessary to reduce most of them

in size. This spoils to some extent the general effect of the large

designs, such as Antimacassars, Brackets, Cosey Groups, &c, though

they be exact copies of the original.
