The word ‘goldwork’ is used to describe embroidery with metal threads and wires, even if they are not gold! This technique has a long history all over the world; originally reserved for items of state and ceremony, now it can be enjoyed by everyone.
Some threads are stitched over to secure them to the fabric, others are cut and stitched through - like beads.
This design fits in an 8 inch ring frame and makes a beautiful gift.
The kit explores two types of couching plus chipping and silk ribbon embroidery techniques.
In the box you get full instructions for each stitch, with tips on how to achieve the best results.
Kit contains: satin fabric and calico backing, pearl purl, Japanese thread, bright check, sewing thread, silk ribbons, 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.
