Schwalm is a form of whitework embroidery named for a region along the Schwalm River in central Germany. Examples date from the late 17th century and were filled with surface stitches. Then later during the 18th and 19th centuries, drawn thread fillings were added proceeding the technique we recognize today. A heart shape is frequently used as a major design unit surrounded by trailing vines and floral motifs. The heart sampler uses a variety of stitches and typical filling stitches. 12 pages.
