This is the best whitework 'tutorial' book that I have come across.Being spiral bound it lays flat for easy reference during the course of work. Lizzie Lansberry gives very clear instructions on a host of whitework techniques even going into details about the order in which work should be completed , an invaluable inclusion. She deals with pulled thread stitches showing how the fabric should be prepared, surface stitches, eyelets, drawn thread work and the stitches to decorate the drawn thread border and cutwork.She concludes with a section on how to incorporate the various techniques in designs using her own as examples. She even includes a section on how to clean and store the finished work. The book contains wonderfully clear instructions on the various stitches and techniques with step by step photographs and diagrams.
I have other books on Whitework but this is by far and away the best of them. I refer to it over and over again.
