Free Blackwork Tutorial - Blackwork embroidery was first thought to have come from Spain to England; where Catherine of Aragon, the wife of Henry the VIII made the embroidery style most popular for cuffs and collars etc during the Tudor period. This style of design was brought about as a cheaper version of lace around the period of 1509, as taxes on lace were high.
