For the Love of Stitching Sampler – Band 49

For the Love of Stitching Sampler – Band 49

This band is deceptive but it is very easy to create because it is made by stitching two rows of  herringbone stitch which is then laced with a thicker thread.


The herringbone is perle 8 and the lacing is a hand dyed rayon lampshade fringing… Yes … I know I will use anything!


This section of the sampler is worked on tea towel linen which is not quite an even weave.


Procion cold water dyes for the rayon lampshade fringing


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

The sampler is currently 44 ft 5 inches or 533 inches (1353.83 centimetres) or 14.8 yards  (13.53 metres) long and still being added to.


This section of the sampler is dated 1996 – Jan 1998
