THE ART OF ENGLISH BLACKWORK

Soft back book ring bound, 187 pages, written and published by Jane D. Zimmerman.

The Art of English Blackwork is a great reference book, it is packed with graphed Blackwork patterns that can be incorporated into a design for Blackwork.

This is book is designed for those who wish to create their own Blackwork embroideries. There are no set designs to work from the book, that is left up to your imagination.

When creating your designs for Blackwork, the designs should have large open areas to establish a repeat Blackwork pattern i.e. flowers with large petals and leaves.

Jane explains how to transfer the design onto the fabric then all you have to do is choose one of the many Blackwork patterns featured in the book.

This book makes a good accompaniment for my Blackwork kits. If you are concerned about making your own Blackwork designs, try one of my kits first to learn the process.
