Description

This sumptuous book is full of incredibly delicate and beautiful whitework embroidery of all kinds. Whitework is simply embroidery worked in white thread on white fabric, and it is renowned for its calm beauty and simplicity. An ancient form of embroidery that was popular in the Middle Ages, Ayako Otsuka has brought whitework completely up to date with her gorgeous examples.

Featuring drawn thread work, Schwalm embroidery, Ajour embroidery and Hedebo embroidery, among other techniques, there is a wealth of information here for the keen embroiderer and 30 very beautiful projects to choose from.

The projects include such items as a sampler, a tea cosy, a teddy bear cushion, a christening gown, a ring bearer’s pillow and a table runner. Some items are more complex than others, and there is a comprehensive techniques section with detailed step-by-step instructions, clear photographs and diagrams to guide you.
