Schwalm Embroidery

Techniques and Designs

by Christine Bishop
The intricate designs of a lost art come to life in this illuminating instructional guide. Beautiful and delicate Schwalm embroidery is a form of whitework that uses surface stitches, pulled fabric, drawn thread, needlelace, and weaving. Precise instructions on fabric preparation and stitching technique, full-color photographs, and transferable patterns simplify a host of projects; some designs are suitable for beginners, like a dainty, lace-edged tea cozy while others cater to the more advanced needlecrafters. Each piece incorporates elements of the Tree of Life—hearts, flowers, fruit, leaves, sun, and dove—traditional hallmarks of Schwalm design. An illustrated glossary of stitches completes this unique volume, a must-have for everyone with a serious interest in needlework.
