For the Love of Stitching Sampler – Band 1

For the Love of Stitching Sampler – Band 1


A variety of Laced Triple Running stitch. I started this sampler with a triple running stitch and laced it with a chenille knitting yarn.

There are a good few ways to lace and thread running stitch some of which are listed in my stitch dictionary at the time (1996) I was exploring what could be done.


Hand dyed cotton (crochet thread) for the running stitches

Hand dyed chenille yarn was used for the lacing. It is quite thick as it is a knitting yarn approximately equal to 8 ply.


The first section is Linen. It is a dress linen which is not quite an even weave, hand painted with procion cold water dyes.

All samples are 15 cm (6 inches) wide and stitched together in one long band sampler.
