One of the better books in the series. Comprehensive instructions on various whitework techniques with good illustrations. I think this book would be a good aide memoire to anyone who has attended a whitework class and has seen the stitches demonstrated at first hand but still a useful book for anyone who has not. You do not get such a good idea of the size of the stitches from a book but nevertheless for anyone serious about whitework, this is certainly the book for you.

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.

An interesting, comprehensive book on the subject with clear illustrations. The preparation required before commencing embroidery was particularly well demonstrated

Bought as a gift and the recipient says it's excellent. Well laid out with clear text and diagrams on the various techniques. Well up to the usual RSN standard and you can be sure that what you are shown is technically correct and gives you an excellent foundation from which to work from.

Congratulations to Lizzy Lansberry on producing this small but packed book on the delicate
craft of Whitework. Full of information, set out clearly and concisely, it is an ideal companion as a reference book and source of inspiration.

It's a lovely book with quite enlighting explanations and beautiful, clear examples. I admire the possibilities that a simple needle a white thread and a piece of white fabric can give to your creativity and imagination. That's what I thought about while folding the pages of this book.

This is a wonderful book, you learn all the stitches you need to begin a piece of whitework embroidery and there are a few examples of projects. Really a good buy, I will look at other RSN Stitch Guides.

I have bought a few of the RSN books now and I think they are very good because they give you the basics and the insparation to go further in to the craft. Lovely starter books
