‘Scarletwork’ is a derivative of ‘blackwork’ which 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 10 inch hoop and is an ideal starting point for beginners.
The kit explores the variation of tone and texture you can achieve with blackwork patterns, using different colours of stranded cotton.
In the box you get full instructions for each stitch, with tips on how to achieve the best results.
Kit contains: Aida fabric, stranded cotton 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 and shred paper prevents the contents moving about too much.
