The word ‘blackwork’ means black stitching on white fabric. Areas of the design are usually filled with counted stitch patterns and then defined with outline stitches.
Blackwork was very popular in Tudor times when the patterns would be very complex, but all in one shade; modern blackwork often involves using different threads to create a shaded design.
This design fits in a 5 inch hoop and is the perfect starting point for a beginner.
The kit explores the basics of shading by varying both the threads and the stitch.
In the pack you get full instructions for each stitch, with tips on how to achieve the best results.
Kit contains: Aida fabric, stranded cotton embroidery thread, cotton machine thread, needles, design and full instructions
The kit comes in an envelope which comes in handy for storage while you stitch the project.
