For the Love of Stitching Sampler – Band 93

For the Love of Stitching Sampler – Band 93

This is another band of stitching in which I experimented with patterns.

The top and bottom of the band is  a row of zig-zag chain stitch followed by double herringbone.

The middle row is Algerian eye stitch with satin stitch between each one. 


Zig zag chain stitch is worked in hand dyed mercerised cotton. Double herringbone is fine worked in hand dyed fine wool and mercerised cotton.

The central band of Algerian eye and satin stitch is worked in cotton


This section of my sampler is worked on 26 count linen


Procion cold water dyes for the threads


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 was worked in April 1998
