Schwalm Embroidery: Techniques and Designs

Schwalm Embriodery is the beautiful and deviated art from the heart of Germany. This fine embroidery reflects the classic intricacy and ornate delicacy of eighteenth and nineteenth century whitework embroidery incorporating surface stitches, pulled fabric, drawn thread, needlelace and needle weaving.

Projects included in this wonderful book range from an heirloom cloth, sampler, pincushion, to a scissor tag, needle case and much, much more.

The detailed colour photographs in this book clearly demonstrate the intricacy and beauty of the work, while Christine, an experienced teacher, explains the ways to recreate it in simple stages, accompanied by numerous step-by-step drawings which help to clarify the instructions.
