Whitework Embroidery


Whitework Embroidery: Designs and Accessories with a Modern Twist

By Seiko Nagano

Learn the timeless charm of whitework embroidery, and see why it's one of the few types of needlework that has rarely gone out of style. These 15 gorgeous designs, each with a project to show it off, demonstrate how whitework uses white (or sometimes off-white) on a white or off-white background fabric. The designs come to life not through color, but through the visual texture and sculptural effects your stitches create. Learn four of the most popular types of traditional whitework embroidery—Schwalm embroidery, Ajour, Hedebo, and drawn threadwork. The projects here are easy to make, including table linens, pouches, wearables, and more, and are designed to fit perfectly with today's sense of beauty. Here's your opportunity to easily take up whitework embroidery. Includes a complete how-to stitch guide and full-size patterns.
