For the Love of Stitching Sampler – Band 7


This band illustrates experiments with Satin stitch and Padded satin stitch.

Instructions on how to do these stitches are in my stitch dictionary


A hand dyed baby knitting wool, cotton (crochet thread), hand dyed wool which is about the same weight as Appletons, hand dyed Danish cotton hand dyed silk,  perle 5 DMC and ribbon floss.

All threads are hand dyed by me. The Danish cotton, silk and hand dyed wool were purchased  in bulk from weavers supplies.


This section of the sampler is a dress linen which is not quite an even weave, hand painted with procion cold water dyes.


Procion cold water dyes for the cotton, wool and silk threads

Disperse dyes (also known as transfer dyes) on the synthetic threads such as baby wool and knitting ribbon.


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