16 beautiful blackwork designs in colour to embroider, based on the four seasons.


Blackwork is a traditional form of embroidery, usually worked in black thread on a white background.

Here, author Melanie Couffe takes the technique and gives it a burst of colour by introducing delicate shades of pink, blue, green, red, yellow, orange and purple. Her book begins with an introduction to the fabrics and threads she uses, and the basic stitches you need to produce the beautiful designs featured in the book. There are 16 gorgeous projects to create, including a pinkeep, mobile phone case, purse and several framed pieces, all accompanied by step-by-step instructions, photographs and charts. Melanie's enchanting designs will inspire you to introduce colour into your blackwork, and create your own modern, stunning embroideries based on this classic technique. The threads used in the book are her own hand-dyed range available to order from her website and Etsy shop.
