A Touch of Fall
Work on Dresden Lace, a gorgeous 17th century white work technique!
Our Group Correspondence Course A Touch of Fall with Jane Ellen Balzuweit is created using a 17th century white work technique, Dresden Lace, a combination of pulled thread and surface embroidery. In this piece, if the student wants to make it contemporary, needlelace can be used for the center motif. The design is worked on Legacy shadow work linen which is not an evenweave but about 50 count fabric. The stitcher has the option of working it in silk or cotton ﬂoss.
