Whitework embroidery books

Whitework embroidery is needlework that is created with white thread on white fabric. Because there is no colour, the texture and patterns of the stitches come to the fore and are displayed in all their radiant beauty. However, many people also enjoy coloured embroidery, and there is always the possibility that whitework embroidery can be adapted into colour, for quite different results.
