Drawn Thread Embroidery
Drawn thread embroidery has been practiced and esteemed for centuries, producing the kind of elaborate linen tablecloths, veils, and shawls passed down through generations. You might think it's too complicated, expensive, and time-consuming to do today. But, in fact, it can be done by anyone who is simply handy with a needle; instead of linen you can use many inexpensive modern fabrics; and while there are many meticulous, intricate designs and patterns, this unique book has lots of ideas for quick and easy projects that will lend beauty and drama to your home and wardrobe.There are separate chapters on all of the well-known drawn thread varieties--needleweaving, reticella, Russian drawn ground, Hedebo, and Hardanger--and even an explanation of how drawn thread techniques can be adapted to the sewing machine.With over 140 photographs and 97 line drawings, this comprehensive book brings a timeless art into the '90s with as much style as precision.

Dravn Thread Work The empty spaces produced in linen b} grouping together with stitches several threads, isolated by the drawing out of warp or woof threads or both, constitutes what is known as drawn thread work .B ygrouping together and covering the isolated threads with different stitches the most varied combinations and the richest patterns can be produced, suitable either as sole decoration or as a finish to cross stitch or other embroidery. The simplest kind of drawn work is known as hem-stitching which consists in drawing out a few parallel threads of the material at the head of a hem and fastening up the upper and last cross-thread to the folded hem above it, so as to prevent its ravelling downwards; thus leaving small open spaces between each of the clusters of threads. The borders, insertions and grounds, the Italian cut stitch, the different kinds of A merican, Danish and Norwegian openwork () and, finally, the Reticella cut work of Italian and Greek origin, are all more complicated and elaborate forms of drawn or openwork; the latter being a transition from openwork on linen to lace work.
