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 an 8 inch hoop and is the perfect starting point for a confident beginner or someone more experienced with blackwork who wants to try some new patterns.
The kit explores the variation of tone and texture you can achieve with 4 blackwork patterns, using stranded cotton and metallics.
In the pack you get full instructions for each stitch, with tips on how to achieve the best results.
Kit contains: linen fabric, stranded cotton embroidery thread, metallic embroidery thread, needles, design and full instructions
The kit comes in a presentation box for handy storage. Fabric is wrapped with acid-free tissue to protect your embroidery project.
