Drawn Fabric Embroidery by Edna Wark
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Drawn fabric embroidery, sometimes called pulled thread embroidery, is a traditional technique that has never lost its appeal to embroiderers. It involves pulling the threads of thebackground fabric to displace them and produce a pattern. This classic text by Edna Wark has been reprinted to help embroiderers - old and new - make the most of this technique, whether they want to create traditional items or experiment further. The clear text includes: design; stitches; technique and planning embroideries; experimental techniques; drawn fabric work on dress; making small items; working panels; and finishing articles.
