5.0 out of 5 stars Techniques and 188 Designs
Very simply illustrated book. With fifty eight pages of floral, butterfly, leaves, fruits, alphabet and patterns on white work techniques.

3.0 out of 5 stars White Work
When I placed my order for this book, I thought it was to do with Parchment because of the title. To my shock and amazement when I opened the book and found it was to do with embroidery I was disappointed. I can however use some of the white work and transpose it to parchment. For someone who is into embroidery it would be fantastic.

Although White Work is basically a needle work book, the patterns are also ideal for parchment craft.
Its packed with flower ,butterfly ,border and corner designs. A really nice book .

4.0 out of 5 stars Not what l thought it would be, 21 Dec. 2009
This review is from: White Work: Techniques and 188 Designs (Dover Embroidery, Needlepoint) (Paperback)
When l received this book l was disapointed at first. I thought it was pergamano patterns which it is not, it is more sewing patterns. It can be adapted for use as pergamano but you will need a printer that will increase and decrease pattern sizes.

4.0 out of 5 stars Read but not tried., 25 Jan. 2013

This review is from: White Work: Techniques and 188 Designs (Dover Embroidery, Needlepoint) (Paperback)
I haven't had much time to get into this book yet and maybe when I do I will like it more. I feel you have to know some about what you are doing first. I'm going to try the designs out on parchment first for family cards just to get used to the designs. This book I feel is aimed at an experienced sewer who is looking for a new area to enjoy.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not good for beginner, 29 Oct. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
So very little examples on how to actually sew any of the designs. I expected a step by step guide, but found it not at all helpful. Okay for a more experienced stitched in the art of Whitework.

This review is from: White Work: Techniques and 188 Designs (Dover Embroidery, Needlepoint) (Paperback)
this has black and white, written details about the stitches and then outlines of patterns in black and white and that is all. No inspiration at all.

This review is from: White Work: Techniques and 188 Designs (Dover Embroidery, Needlepoint) (Paperback)
All the written details about the stitches and the outlines of the patterns are in black and white. I am still fairly satisfied with my purchase.
