WHITE WORK COMMISSIONS

Fine White Work is an intricate hand embroidery technique with fine delicate results and is a very good embroidery technique to interpret buildings.

Fine white work is also a beautiful technique for interpreting other subjects, see Fine White Work kits.

I am open to any type of commissions in any technique. My versatility stems from my excellent training at the Royal School of Needlework. The main emphasis in their training is on technique and quality of work.

To see some of my other commissions in different techniques go to Commissions or Contact me with your request.

COTTAGE

I was commissioned to embroider a friend's house in a technique that I thought would best interpret it. I chose to use fine white work embroidery technique.

Fine white work involves embroidering three layers of fabric (two layers of shadow linen with a layer of net sandwiched in-between) together with a variety of different embroidery stitches. 

When all the embroidery has been worked, layers of linen are cut away from the back or the front of the work, leaving some areas with two layers of fabric (the walls, roof of the cottage and the brick wall in front of the cottage), some with one layer of fabric (the sky, the trees and the green house) and some with net (the windows).

On the single layer of fabric (trees), pulled stitches are worked, in the net areas (windows), net stitches are worked.

A 3- dimensional piece is created by the different shades of the fabric.

CHURCH

For my friend's wedding gift I wanted to make her a picture of the quaint little country church that she was married in with the date of their marriage and their names so that they would have something to remember of that special day.

Fine white work involves embroidering three layers of fabric (two layers of shadow linen with a layer of net sandwiched in-between) together with a variety of different embroidery stitches.

When all the embroidery has been worked, layers of linen are cut away from the back or the front of the work, leaving some areas with two layers of fabric (the bell tower and the right alms house), some with one layer of fabric (the sky, the trees and the center alms house) and some with net (the windows). On the single layer of fabric (trees and center alms house), pulled stitches are worked, in the net areas (windows), net stitches are worked.

A 3- dimensional piece is created by the different shades of the fabric.
