Tracy A. Franklin (Author), Nicola Jarvis (Author). This is a very good beginning Whitework book. First, materials are explored, including pictures that show how thick each type of thread is in relation to both variations of the same thread and other whitework threads.

Tracy A. This was very valuable to me because while I am experienced, I don't yet know every variation of every type of thread and how they relate to each other. Basic tools and fabrics are also covered.

Batsford is one of my favorite publishers for crafts, along with Lark and a few others. The pictures in this book are inspiring. First, this is a technique book, not a project book - while there are many things that could be made with the information within, there are no formal projects as such.

This is a very good beginning Whitework book. First, materials are explored, including pictures that show how thick each type of thread is in relation to both variations of the same thread and other whitework threads. This was very valuable to me because while I am experienced, I don't yet know every variation of every type of thread and how they relate to each other. Basic tools and fabrics are also covered.

Each chapter surveys a different form of whitework and a dictionary of stitches specific to that form of whitework precedes each chapter. I felt that some of the stitch guides could have been expanded. I also felt that a few other forms of whitework, including needlelace and hardanger should have been reviewed. Shadow work was given short shrift in terms of the methods of layering. Each chapter shows historical examples of classic work and ways in which contemporary fiber artists have interpreted the form. This is one of the most valuable parts of the book.

So, a good introductory survey and very inspirational. The reader gets a good basic grounding in the stitches, materials and methods of whitework, certainly enough to decide which type of whitework to explore, but in depth information will require additional books specific to the subject. All of that said, I will both keep and refer to this book for the inspirational classic and contemporary work. The book gave me ideas and made me want to make things.

My first impression of this book was that it was pretty hoity toity. Just looking at the cover makes you question if there will be anything recognizable in it. However, if you are an advanced stitcher you will really enjoy digging into the techniques here to expand your repertoire of stitches. I studied the history of whitework and was surprised not in what it covered but in what was omitted: hardanger from Norway.

The contents are: Broderie anglaise, Richelieu and cutwork, drawn thread work, pulled work, shadow work, Mountmellick, Ayrshire and fine white work, and "further experimental work." Almost every culture has had some form of whitework in its history. But there is almost no mention of Asia, Africa or the Americas. The reason probably is that in the rarefied atmosphere at the excellent Royal School of Needlework, the students must keep their focus close but deep. Thus, we find a very detailed and well-written expose on the beginnings of the above techniques. I did not know that Mountmellick was designed by one woman, a Quaker in the early 19th century in the town of same name in Ireland. I had heard of Ayr in Scotland but did not know that Ayrshire whitework derived from there and is nicknamed "Scottish flowering" and "sewed muslin."

A nice thing is getting the difference between drawn thread and pulled work which many embroiderers (previously me) mix up. Both techniques are employed in hardanger: the first is when you cut and remove (draw) the horizontal threads, weave them back into the direction from which they were originating, thus leaving a strong boundary. The grid is now broken and the parallel vertical threads are sewn together or additional threads inserted in many pleasing ways. Pulled thread is...well...think eyelets. The threads are not removed to make the design--they are manipulated about in specific or random order.

Right after New Ideas in Goldwork came out, I happened to be visiting the V&A Museum in London and she taught a 2-day class which I enjoyed very much. Ms. Franklin is an excellent teacher and brilliant stitcher. If you want to expand your horizons, I urge you to consider purchasing this book.

I've been very disappointed by this book. While it does explain nicely some of the stitches used by the different embroidery types it presents, there are no sample projects, and no pictures of the whole finished piece. So it's really hard to imagine what the result of the presented techniques would be. It does say that it's contemporary whitework - a lot of the examples shown would probably belong in a modern art museum, but I think that the average person looking for embroidery techniques and ideas will not find much to their taste. And unfortunately, most of the gorgeous whitework pieces pictured as inspirational overheads at every chapter are infuriatingly out of focus. Again, they would work wonderfully as art shots, but since only about two inches of the work is in focus, and the rest is more and more unfocused, it's very frustrating for an aspiring embroiderer...

Here are the titles of the chapters:
1 - Tools and equipment
2 - Materials and threads
3 - Broderie anglaise
4 - Richelieu and cutwork
5 - Drawn thread work
6 - Pulled work
7 - Shadow work
8 - Mountmellick
9 - Ayrshire and fine whitework
10 - Further experimental work
