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 confident beginner or anyone who wants to try metallic threads.
The kit explores the variation of tone and texture you can achieve with 4 blackwork patterns, using a variety of threads including gold and silver 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, coton a broder thread, metallic embroidery thread, needles, design and full instructions
The kit comes in an envelope which comes in handy for storage while you stitch the project.
