Drawn Thread Work

Drawn thread work is a form of embroidery, by which selected warp and/or weft threads are drawn out of the ground material and then cut off. The raw edges are normally stitched over. The remaining threads are decorated with buttonhole stitch or other stitches, in a variety of designs. In Italy it is known as punto tirato.
