Margaret S: Blackwork Sampler

Margaret S recently decided to have a go at some blackwork. She started using a pattern for a sampler, however some of the designs are different where she made up her own. We were all very impressed with her first attempt when she showed us this sampler at a recent meetup.

I really like the fact the Margaret made up her own design rather than sticking to the pattern when it wasn’t exactly what she wanted.

The Royal School of Needlework have an interesting guide to blackwork if you would like to find out more about this technique.

  1. Thanks for posting the picture; the sampler has now been pressed and checked for loose stitches ready for framing.
