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:

  19. I have to express some appreciation to the writer just for bailing me out of such a situation. After exploring through the internet and finding tricks that were not pleasant, I assumed my life was over. Being alive without the solutions to the difficulties you have resolved through the site is a critical case, as well as the ones that might have badly affected my career if I hadn’t encountered your web site. The know-how and kindness in playing with all the pieces was invaluable. I don’t know what I would have done if I had not come upon such a point like this. I can at this point look forward to my future. Thanks a lot very much for the reliable and effective guide. I won’t think twice to refer the website to any person who ought to have guide about this problem.
