Pulled Thread Embroidery – Stitches, Techniques and over 140 exquisite designs by Marie-Helene Jeanneau
From the back of the book: ‘Also known as ‘counted thread openwork’ or ‘drawn fabric embroidery’, this beautiful whitework technique is achieved by simply pulling on the threads of the fabric, without cutting or drawing them. It is worked on loosely woven fabrics using a fine tapestry needle, and involves accurately counting the threads to create intricate, geometric designs.
Pulled thread embroidery is well suited to modern-day decorative use, either on its own or combined with other techniques such as hand embroidery, patchwork and quilting. Create gorgeous, delicate edgings for table linen, or beautifully simple yet intricate designs for cushion covers, lampshades or purses. With clear instructions, stitch diagrams, charts and photographs for over 140 stunning designs, plus inspiring finished pieces, this book is an invaluable resource for anyone interested in this exquisite form of openwork embroidery.’
