ARABESQUE DE CORDOUE- CAHIER DE DENTELLE This is a useful book for learning how to handle the fabric and the threads, includes diagrams and scans of finished projects and detailed explanations of working the techniques. A special section entitled "School of Stitches" illustrates stitches which are not pulled threads, but are needed for the embroidery projects outlined in the book. Some pulled thread projects are easy, and these are extensively described and illustrated in the book (cushions, lampshades, etc). But once you know the techniques you can also progress to "whitework", which was particularly popular in the 19th century for extremely elegant embroidering of sheets, curtains, and tablecloths.
