Event description

Description

Learn pulled thread embroidery using white thread on white linen, creating a lacy appearance with different stitches.

Pulled thread embroidery, also known as drawn fabric, is a form of whitework that doesn’t involve cutting the fabric threads. Instead, tension is used when working the stitches to draw the fabric threads together to produce a lacy effect. (Not to be confused with drawn thread embroidery, which involves cutting the fabric.) It is traditionally worked on white fabric, usually a linen evenweave, using white thread.

The pulled thread kits for this class cost £28 each, payable on the day to the tutor, and include all materials required. You will need to bring embroidery scissors and a thimble, needle threader, magnifier and daylight lamp may also be useful. The design is worked on either 20hpi or 28 hpi evenweave linen (please call me on 07956 536242 to let me know your choice). You will cover four different pulled thread stitches.


There will be an hour’s break for lunch at 1pm. Coffee, tea and biscuits are included in the class price. There are shops nearby for lunch, but it may be easier to bring a packed lunch.

This is a wonderful opportunity to learn a traditional hand embroidery technique, one of many under the umbrella of whitework, in the relaxing environment of Exeter Community Centre, situated in the lovely city of Exeter.
