The Blackwork Star is a beginners design that is worked from a chart. Accompanying the chart are detailed instructions with step-by-step instructions and diagrams on how to work the blackwork star. The star is embellished with gold spangles and beads and Japan thread and the background is worked in random stitched gold stars. I offer this design at a lower cost for groups.

The star is not intended to be worked on 14 or 16 count Aida due to some of the stitches being worked over an odd number of threads of the fabric, so you should be able to count on 28 count or 32 count fabric. A stitching light and magnification are an asset to work the embroidery.

I am offering free on-going critique with this kit…..you can email me at any time if you have questions or would like me to critique your embroidery.


Description of Fabric Types:

The count of a fabric is the amount of threads there are per inch of the fabric. The more threads there are per inch the harder it will be to see the holes in the fabric.

  • 28 Count Lugana: 52% cotton and 48% Rayon. The fabric has even weave threads (all threads are the same thickness). The patterns come out more even on the even weave fabric compared to the linen fabric.
  • 28 Count Cashel Linen: 100% Linen. The fabric has uneven weave threads (threads are different thicknesses) giving a natural look.
  • 32 Count Lugana: 52% cotton and 48% Rayon. The fabric has even weave threads (all threads are the same thickness). The patterns come out more even on the even weave fabric compared to the linen fabric.
  • 32 Count Belfast Linen: 100% Linen. The fabric has uneven weave threads (threads are different thicknesses) giving a natural look.
