Thérèse de Dillmaont (Theresa Maria Josefa Dillmann von Dillmont), was born in Austria in 1846. She was a contemporary of Emilie Bach (1840-1890), author of books on needle- work, Tina Frauberger and Luise Schinnerer who studied Coptic textiles. In 1886, she moved to Alsace (France) where she founded a school of embroidery with the help of Jean Dolfus (DMC). She wrote many books published by Bibliotheque DMC. Among her first attempts at writing, there are a number of albums that provide designs for the most popular types of needle work and how to execute them.
