In the spirit of the Arts and Crafts revival movement, May Morris researched late 16th and early 17th century English historic stitches known as opus anglicanum or "English work" at local museums and advocated their use in place of the more repetitive cross-stitch, Berlin wool work, and tent stitch which had become Victorian pastimes.
