Band Sampler: Chain Stitch

I picked up my band sampler again last week, and scanned the list of embroidery stitches I intend to learn and/or practice. Not to be all emo-14-year-old, but the chain stitch jumped out at me as a nice way to reflect the experience of the past month.

I free-handed the text and stitched it on the subway to and from work for a few days using Sharon B‘s hand-dyed mulberry silk. The variagation is so vivid! I really enjoyed the process.

I was surprised at how well the chain stitch handled curves, but a little disappointed in starts-and-stops. Still, I got good practice with it.

If you’re interested in giving chain stitch a try, here are some good tutorials:

It’s not at all simplistic to simply be offering secrets and techniques which people today might have been selling. And we all see we’ve got the writer to thank for that. Those explanations you have made, the simple website navigation, the friendships you help promote – it is all excellent, and it’s making our son and the family imagine that that idea is awesome, and that’s particularly mandatory. Thank you for the whole thing!
