For the Love of Stitching Sampler – Band 138

For the Love of Stitching Sampler – Band 138

This band of stitching is created by working two lines of overlapping herringbone stitch and then interlacing them with a third thread.



Perle thread #5


This section of my sampler is worked on cream dress linen


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.


The sampler was started in 2004 and completed it early  2005.

  1. Hello Sharon,

    I have just managed to copy this herringbone variation for my Week 3 Sampler! It took me three goes and it is still not totally correct! It will have to do.
