This beautiful richly textured, white-on-white embroidery was developed in the early nineteenth century in Mountmellick, Ireland - where designs were inspired by nature and the lovely flowers growing around the area.

The embroidery is traditionally worked on close-woven cotton with cotton thread and it has a great elegance. Flowing floral patterns intertwine with stems and leaves, the smooth satin stitches contrasting wonderfully with the padded, knotted stitchery and untextured background. These natural designs are often fairly large and the sculptured patterns have an appealing bold quality, which is enhanced by the absence of colour and the addition of knitted fringed fringes. Pat Trott explains all the techniques with clear step-by-step photography and inspiring easy-to-follow projects. This book will be welcomed by beginners and also embroiderers of all skill levels.

- Classic technique with revival of popularity

- Very little competition

- High profile author who runs workshops and courses
