Redwork Machine Embroidery

Redwork Machine Embroidery

Redwork embroidered designs are a form of American embroidery (called art needlework). It was developed in the 19th century and traditionally uses red thread. This was because red dyes were the first commercially available colorfast dyes available. Redwork embroideries are composed of simple stitches and are mainly used to decorate household objects, though new uses are being conceived everyday!
