Whitework embroidery covers a range of techniques which are all traditionally worked in white on white.

Techniques include Broderie Anglaise and Richelieu embroidery incorporate finely stitched eyelets, cut work embroidery, ladder work and surface stitching; Drawn thread work where the warp or weft threads of the even-weave fabric are withdrawn and embellished; Pulled work where the warp and weft threads on open even-weave linen are pulled together or apart to create a lace like repeat pattern; and Shadow work where stitches, including closed herringbone stitch, are worked on the reverse side of a transparent fabric to show a shadow on the front.

  • I studied the four techniques on four 2 week summer intensive courses, and whilst they were extremely hard work I have some wonderful memories and I am very appreciative of and grateful to Tracy. More Testimonials >
