About this title


The time-honored technique of drawn fabric embroidery--which involves pulling the threads of the background pattern to displace them and produce a pattern--has never lost its appeal. Now embroiderers interested in mastering this skill have this classic text, newly reprinted, to help them create traditional items or experiment further. It includes information on design, stitches, planning the embroidery, and more unusual techniques. Page by page, stitchers will find advice on using drawn fabric on clothing, making small items, working panels, and finishing articles.

About the Author:

Edna Wark lives in Australia, where she taught and lectured on embroidery, and her work has been exhibited in London and New York. She has undertaken ecclesiastical commissions, and has researched into metal thread embroidery. She is the author of The Craft of Patchwork and Making Fabric Bags.
