This is ‘band’ is the first seam on section 25 of my band sampler. The foundation row of this line of stitching is herringbone which I then laced. Tucked into the ‘V’ shape are 3 detached chain stitches. I stitched a bead at the base of each cluster.
THe foundation row is perle 5 laced with a hand dyed knitting ribbon. The chain stitches are hand dyed cotton perle 8 thread
The cotton perle was dyed with procion dyes and the knitting ribbon was dyed with transfer dyes because it is synthetic.
The sampler is 15 cm (6 inches) wide and all sections are 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 during 2007.
