For the Love of Stitching Sampler – Band 12

For the Love of Stitching Sampler – Band 12

This next section I do not know how to divide into ‘bands ‘ as it is fairly freeform and more of it will appear tomorrow.


This band illustrates experiments with long and short stitch, buttonhole wheel, chain stitch, twisted chain stitch and knotted Creten


Long and short stitch and the buttonhole wheel was worked in a hand dyed superfine merino wool that I purchased from a weavers supplier

Twisted chain stitch and knotted Creten  were worked in a hand dyed cotton and silk the same weight and thickness as  perle 5 DMC and hand dyed cotton

All threads are hand dyed by me.


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


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

  1. Sharon-could you tell me how to subscribe to the Pin Tangle RSS.
    A friend is letting me know when you have posted something but it would be so much easier if I could do it myself. When I click on the Pin Tangle RSS in the rifht hand side of this blog page, all I get is a pay with all kinds of jibberish. If you could help, I’d appreciate it. Thanks, Anita amester@austin.rr.com
