Cutwork

Also known as Roman embroidery, Venetian embroidery, Broderie Anglaise, Reticella cutwork, Richelieu cutwork, Renaissance cutwork

Cutwork is a form of whitework where small sections of the ground fabric are cut away.  The open area is edged with stitches and, depending on the type of cutwork, may be filled with other, lace-like stitches.

N.B. Cutwork should not be confused with Flat cutwork (goldwork).
