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 often be combined with goldwork to give a beautiful effect.
This design fits in a 10 inch hoop and is the perfect step up from the beginner kits.
Choose from 16 Thread-per-Inch Aida (the fabric most commonly used for Cross Stitch) or 32 Thread-per-Inch Linen (a bit more of a challenge).
The kit explores three blackwork patterns, using a variety of different threads and stitches, along with two goldwork techniques.
In the pack you get full instructions for each stitch, with tips on how to achieve the best results.
Kit contains: Aida or linen fabric, stranded cotton embroidery thread, coton a broder thread, cotton machine 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.
