Overview

In drawn-fabric embroidery (also often known as "pulled work"), the threads of a fabric are pulled apart or drawn together by stitchery so that the holes left form attractive patterns.

Over 100 large, easy-to-follow diagrams and photographs make it easy to follow the step-by-step instructions. Foreword. Index. 109 black-and-white line illustrations. 9 halftones.
