On this clip from Creative Living with Sheryl Borden(KENW), designer Kim Sanders discusses the elegant whitework techniques of pulled and drawn thread which transform evenweave linen into fabric lace. The differences between the two are illustrated with embroideries. A sampler shows the process of withdrawing thread and securing the area with embroidery stitches.
