Pulled thread embroidery is now experiencing a great upsurge in popularity, primarily because it represents a vast extension of technique for the embroiderer and can be perfected with a minimum of laborious practice. You can use the pulled thread method in conjunction with other forms of counted thread embroidery to create a whole new range of possibilities and achievements. Pulled thread embroidery is a remarkably beautiful and usable form. Prized for centuries in Denmark for its simplicity of method and striking results, it can be applied in making doilies, tablemats and tablecloths, kerchiefs, cuffs for clothing or any decoration requiring delicate beauty. This book, a product of the world-renowned Danish Handworkers Guild, gives you clear and precise instructions and illustrations for 45 historic pulled thread designs.
