This book by Lesley Wilkins now shows clearly in a single volume everything you need to know to start blackwork: an introduction to the history, description of materials, the few commonly used stitches and finally the mounting of the finished work.

In addition it contains very many patterns based on historical embroidery: narrow and wide edgings, plant and animal motifs, abstract motifs which you can put together yourself to make a sampler; the book also contains many suggestions for samplers which you can work according to the diagrams. Knowledge of English is not really necessary.

This new book combines the two earlier, popular books by this author (Beginner’s Guide to Blackwork and Blackwork Samplers). The order of the pages has been changed a little and duplicates taken out, but nothing new has been added.

If you already have the earlier two books, you do not need to buy this one.
