Whitework has frequently been neglected in the US because of its undeserved reputation as a difficult form of embroidery. In reality, whitework can be performed at all levels of expertise; even more important, superb results can be achieved without laborious practice and prodigious technique. From these pages whitework emerges as a vibrant and continually evolving form of contemporary embroidery that is both beautiful in itself and valuable for its myriad uses. No previous knowledge of whitework is assumed and complete information is provided on materials, pattern transferring techniques, instructions and more than 20 stitch diagrams. Following the instructions are forty pages of magnificent patterns, including florals, repeats, abstract designs, spot and corner decorations in a wide variety of sizes and two complete sets of alphabets for use as monograms.
