Title: Schwalm Embroidery: Techniques and Designs
Schwalm Embroidery is named after the region along the Schwalm River known as 'die Schwalm' in Germany. Beautiful and deviated, it is a form of late eighteenth to nineteenth century whitework embroidery which incorporates surface stitches, pulled fabric, drawn thread, needlelace and needle weaving.
Projects included in this book are an heirloom cloth, sampler, pincushion, scissor tag and needle case and much much more.
The colour photographs in this book show clearly the intricacy and beauty of the work, while Christine, an experienced teacher, explains the ways to recreate it in simple stages, accompanied by numerous step-by-step drawings which help to clarify the instructions. No. of pages:
