Delve into elegant Frisian whitework with historical whitework specialist, Yvette Stanton. From Friesland in the
Netherlands, this is a style of counted embroidery dating from the 1600s.

It was traditionally used on men’s shirt collars, on household linen, and on samplers. Whitework is usually stitched in white thread on white fabric and most Frisian whitework is worked this way. However, this technique also can have touches of colour, and some samplers are worked entirely in coloured thread. Alphabets, figurative motifs and geometric shapes are common, and they are interpreted in a wide variety of stitches, such as satin stitch, eyelets, whipped back stitch, and chain stitch; some also with cutwork and drawn thread work.

With Yvette Stanton’s book, Frisian Whitework, you will be able to:

  •  explore how Frisian whitework featured on clothing and other textiles
  •  study many photographs featuring historical examples of Frisian whitework
  •  learn the stitches and techniques of Frisian whitework with clear step-by-step instructions and detailed diagrams. Both left- and right-handed instructions areincluded
  • have the confidence and skills to make ten original projects, from small through tolarge, with a range of useful and beautiful applications.

Yvette Stanton’s expert instructions will help you on your way to making beautiful Frisian whitework embroidery.
