Fisherton De La Mere

The style of embroidery known as Fisherton De La Mere is essentially pulled work with the addition of surface stitches.

It is named after the English village of Fisherton de la Mere in Wiltshire,

where, in the late 19th century Fisherton House was the home

of a distinguished embroiderer, Josephine Mary Newall

who adapted 16th and 17th century embroidery techniques

and developed and taught this style of embroidery to individuals in the parish.

A complete history is included with each design.

Fabric and threads required for Barberry Row designs are not included with the design but may be purchased.
