Whitework embroidery an introduction to the different techniques

The term whitework embroidery has covered a large range of techniques through the years. A basic description would be that it is white stitching on white fabric, but that wouldn’t really do it justice. Whether it is delicate Hollie Point on a baby’s bonnet, intricate Reticella (as shown in the photo) or a cushion cover worked in Hardanger, there is a style to suit all.
