If you’re a fan of whitework embroidery, there’s an online exhibit of fabulous pieces of whitework that you can’t afford to miss! “Whitework” is a rather generic term for white-on-white hand embroidery, and as you browse through this exhibit, you’ll see how whitework can encompass many, many needlework techniques.
The Whitework Exhibit online at Lacis Museum details extraordinary pieces of whitework – some are so detailed and finely worked that it’s hard to imagine the time and effort that went into them! They are simply gorgeous pieces!
At the online museum, click “slide show” to meander through photos of this exquisite work. You can also select the Whitework Exhibit Catalog link to read (in PDF format) about the different types of whitework that are showcased in the exhibit.
If you have time to go browsing and you like whitework – or really any needlework technique! – this is a good place to spend some moments. Enjoy!
