Lately I’ve been working on updating my Video Library of Hand Embroidery Stitches, which is a lot of fun – but takes a lot of time! Just to let you know that some new stitches are coming, I thought I’d add an update of what’s coming up.
I’ve been working on filming variations of the chain stitch. Some of the raw footage so far includes double chain stitch, cable chain stitch, open chain stitch, and rosette chain stitch. The most complicated is the rosette chain. Many people have requested it via e-mail, as they say that pictures alone just don’t do it for them. I looked through several books and at several websites to see what’s out there on the rosette chain (I like to make sure my technique matches the majority of authority opinion on how certain stitches should be done) – and, in seeing the photos, I realized why it can be confusing! So I’ve got a video coming that will help you make sense of the confusing pictures.
I’ve also got scroll stitch and coral stitch to add, and then – long awaited, but finally possible! – the long and short stitch. I’ve been filming this one in stages, and have some editing to do, and then I’ll get it up. That’ll probably be a week or so down the road here, as it will take the most time.
In the meantime, feel free to check out the Video Library of Hand Embroidery Stitches if you haven’t already, and stay tuned for a new series of videos!
