Holbein Embroideries produce a wide range of blackwork designs, largely in a traditional style. On this page you can see the larger designs, and the link on the right takes you a page with a set of smaller blackwork tiles.
The first group of designs is a set of elegant ladies.
These two cute designs use coloured threads to great effect
Here we have three more traditional blackwork samplers
These are three blackwork designs in an Art Nouveau style
We have a set of birth and wedding/anniversary blackwork samplers
These samplers are in an unusual octagon shape. They can also be framed as circles.
And finally - Acorns is an attractive small design using some metallic thread, and the Shipping Forecast map will appeal to all who can remember the Home Service on longwave!
