What’s in my Stash? Here’s another look at a something in my needlework stash. The purpose of these “stash” posts is to show you some things I have in my supply closet that you might find interesting. It’s not to “sell” you on anything, but just to let you know that this stuff is out there, in case it’s something that you would find fun or useful for your stitching needs.
Today, I’ll show you some Garniture! Garniture, by definition, is something that decorates or embellishes. And there’s a whole line of Garniture on the market that is perfect for finishing needlework items. Have you ever made a pin cushion, an ornament, a needlebook, or some other item, and been stumped about how to finish the edge? Garniture helps solve that problem!
These specialty trims come in windowed envelopes, in varying lengths from a meter to three meters, depending on the stuff.
Garniture is available in all kinds of pretty and unique little trims.
Some of the trims are quite dressy!
And some are a bit more casual, like this natural fibery tassels and swirly trim.
Garniture can be colorful, like this tiny purple ric rac, green satin piping, or red picot edging.
There are also various types of lace that come in this line of Garniture, from the above crocheted laces to very delicate insert laces and so forth.
Garniture is the perfect stuff for finishing off a project. You can probably imagine its many uses on your own. Some ideas that pop into my mind are doll making, crazy quilting, ornament finishes, pin cushion & needlebook edging, trim on embroidered or fabric boxes, and on and on!
You can find Garniture at your local needlework shop. If they don’t have it in stock, ask them to order it for you! You’ll find the whole range of garniture (with photos) on the Access Commodities website.
