Drawn Fabric Embroidery

Description

In drawn-fabric embroidery (also often known as "pulled work"), the threads of a fabric are pulled apart or drawn together by stitchery so that the holes left form attractive patterns. Because it is sturdy enough to withstand daily use and frequent laundering, it is a particularly practical type of embroidery – usable in table linen, bed linen and lampshades.

In this clear, comprehensive overview, the author offers meticulously detailed directions for working stitches, borders, outlines and fillings, including suggestions for combining and adapting them and for their use. Over 100 large, easy-to-follow diagrams and photographs make it easy to follow the step-by-step instructions.
