Step by step photography, full instructions and diagrams make this a clear and user-friendly guide to whitework, and Lizzy's skills and talent make it an inspirational book.

Whitework begins with the history of this wide-ranging type of embroidery, then explains the materials needed and the issues of designing and ordering your work for stitching in white on white fabric.

The Stitches section covers pulled thread, core surface, decorative and drawn thread stitches, as well as eyelets and cutwork. 

Two beautiful whitework pieces are then analysed to show how all the stitches and techniques were used, and a traditional piece is reworked with a contemporary twist. 

Finally the further techniques of using layers, net darning and trailing are shown.
