Product description

Review

Aug/Sep 09 Whitework is a general term that encompasses a wide range of techniques which vary hugely, from the delicate stitches of Ayrshire work, which was traditionally worked on the finest cotton lawn, to the robust Mountmellick embroidery worked with thicker threads on cotton satin jean fabric. Some techniques are worked on the surface of the fabric, while in others some areas are cut away; the unifying characteristic is the use of white threads on white fabric. If you want to explore the use of white on white, this book offers a wide range of stitches and techniques, including Carrickmacross (often described as lace, but in fact a form of embroidery worked on a net ground), Hedebo (Danish whitework), candlewicking, shadow work - and of course, Ayrshire and Mountmellick. Information about the origins and history of each technique, suitable fabrics, threads and needles accompany the step-by-step stitch instructions. Stitch No. 82, Aug-Oct 07 The subtitle of this book, "Everything you ever wanted to know about whitework" aptly sums up what this volume is all about. Presented in a step-by-step format on easy-to-read spiral bound pages, there are lots of colour photographs at every stage. Any stitch you may need is illustrated in great detail and there are little tips scattered throughout to add interest. At the start of each section there is a history and illustrations covering an aspect of whitework varying from Ayrshire embroidery to Tambour embroidery with cutwork, shadow work, Mountmellick and more in between. A-Z of Whitework is the perfect book to get you started in one of the whitework techniques, with over 1000 photographs to guide you, you cannot go wrong! Classic Stitches
