Product Details


Pulled thread embroidery transforms a piece of ordinary fabric into delicate "lace" by compressing threads of loosely woven background material with tightly pulled stitches. Focusing on this age-old craft Moyra McNeill's clearly written, profusely illustrated how-to book shows embroiderers what attractive effects can be achieved by using relatively simple techniques. The 207-page, soft cover book covers the history of this technique then provides easy-to-follow instructions for creating dozens of stitches and procedures for a variety of edgings. The final chapter shows examples of pulled work embroidery from the past.
