Canvas work patterns, originally printed in Berlin, inspired nineteenth-century embroiderers to create beautiful designs worked in colourful wools and silks. This technique became known as Berlin Woolwork. Jane Alford shares her enthusiasm and admiration for the beautiful embroideries of this bygone era.
Using the clear colour charts the reader can recreate the vibrancy and beauty of the original floral designs, from lily of the valley and pansies to beaded poppies and roses.
This beginner's guide covers all you need to know, from preparing the canvas and joining threads, to blocking, mounting and framing an embroidery.
