5.0 out of 5 stars Useful and inspiring guide, 16 Jan 2011
This review is from: Blackwork (Royal School of Needlework Essential Stitch Guides) (Hardcover-spiral)
Another great book in the Essential Stitch Guide series from Search Press. This book follows a similar format to the Crewelwork book, an introduction to the history of Blackwork along with details of the materials & equipment needed and how to set up.

You are then guided through the different stitches, again with well written instructions and clear photos to aid you. The book then takes you through some of the many patterns used in blackwork to give texture to your designs. It also provides photographic examples of when such patterns could be used.

You are also shown how to break up the patterns easing the colour from black to white to really add another dimension to your work. As with the previous book this book is spiral bound and is small enough to be carried around.
