learn how to do embroidery stitches
Ms. Emily Adams video-instructing how to 'quilt' the girls' dance tutus so that the layers stay together as the dancers jump during a performance... Use blunt-end needle (tapestry or needlepoint type) and White Embroidery Floss (six strand DMC brand for example) Cut the embroidery floss into manageable lengths and separate into two-strand sections. You want to steam the tutu prior to your needlework. The first work on the video is on the lower layers (underside) --- so work with the tutu upside down. You will be hand-tying and knotting at the beginning and ending of your 'quilting' basting style stitching...leaving enough slack in the running stitches so that the tuille netting will not tear during movement, keeping the layers connected but loose enough to flow. The tacking of the upper layers (see video) is hand-tying small knots, alternated between top two layers and second and third layers of tutu... resembling zigzag or star pattern around the inner and outer circumference of the tutu.

Elizabethan Embroidery, Gold flower petal, hand embroidered, using Elizabethan 'Flying' Needlelace technique. Stitched with Detached Buttonhole (corded).
This is the RIGHT HANDED method of the metal thread version I posted last year. The stitch looks different with whatever thread you use. Its particularly beautiful when worked in gold thread. The earlier video has a little more information and it shows you how to end the stitch off. We have a duty never to forget how to do these amazing stitches from hundreds of years ago. With all the tools we now have at our disposal that make it so much easier to analyse and decipher ancient embroideries, not least with aid of high definition photography, what are we waiting for, let's get sewing & creating ! Beth Lea
Single Detached Buttonhole is uncorded and it worked back and forth. It has a much finer mesh than Corded Detached Buttonhole. However, a lot of people try this stitch worked flat and soon abandon it because they find it to be too 'lumpy'' or 'uncontrollable'. To compensate for this, they'll use a long straight stitch return row along the back. This video demonstrates that you don't have to do that, and you can make the stitches point the same way, as can be achieved by working it spirally, WITHOUT the need for a wasteful return row at the back. This method of working has also assisted me in achieving better, more regulated stitch formation with other Buttonhole family of stitches, eg Ceylon stitch, that you can see an example of in this video. In fact, worked this way, you might be mistaken for thinking its actually ladder stitch. Furthermore, this method saves on precious thread which is in keeping with the Elizabethan principles of embroidery.
www.coreybarksdale.com Call to All Youtube Artist. Please submit a video response. Mixed media art creation by Atlanta, Georgia artist Corey Barksdale, Modern beadwork is often used as a creative hobby to create jewelry, purses, coasters, and dozens of other crafts. Beads are available in many different designs, sizes, colors, and materials, allowing much variation among bead artisans and projects. Simple projects can be created in less than an hour by novice beaders, while complex beadwork may take weeks of meticulous work with specialized tools and equipment. 3D beading Bead knitting on double-pointed knitting needles 3D beading is less common than 2D beading, largely because free 3D beading patterns are not well distributed on the internet. Resources are scarce and difficult to find. It is mainly an oriental art form, and most 3D beading resources are written in oriental languages, such as Japanese and Chinese, further impeding wide access to English-speaking countries. 3D beading is also associated with the stigma of being "too complex" for most beaders to manage, although this sentiment is largely due to the apparent complexity of many oriental beading diagrams. It is a challenge for beading pattern designers to create 2D beading patterns that portray 3D beaded objects. However, there are resources available that facilitate this process by offering free instructions on how to draw a 3D beading diagram using free software available from inkscape.org ...
This I did as a labour of love. It was NOT intended to actually be embroidered (with almost 1.8 million stitches, it would be just a "little" impractical) (Note: Each little square of the grid indicates 1cm) I digitised it by hand and it took more than just a few hours to get all the detail looking just right. It was fun to do, and I think it's fun to watch the video... It's played at an average of 4000 stitches/minute, so that should give you some idea.
www.dailywebtv.com - Embroidery, embellishments and decorative stitches can make garments, linens, towels and home décor items extraordinary. Traditional hand sewing is time consuming and painstaking. When this handicraft is married with technology, it becomes more efficient and even more creative. A basic sewing machine is a starting point, offering a few decorative stitches. For more elaborate projects, there are embroidery machines that in addition to embroidery, can be used for many other decorative stitches.

Here is another way to work this stitch, lets call it Version II. Its better suited in many respects to use with metallic thread, however, the previous version (see my other video) may be seen to produce flatter and possibly, prettier results. If you want to find out more about this stitch and the history behind it etc, please see the internet link mentioned at the end.
Jacobean Double Plaited Braid Stitch - Hand Embroidery instructional video. Although I am a left-handed stitcher, you can see from this video the important stages in the construction of the stitch, crucially how to begin the stitch, how to look for the 'cross shape of the previous half of the stitch and how to keep the working thread out of the way while you locate the two lower 'feet' of the previous stitch to keep the woven surface structure of this classic design, in what appears to be 2 adjascent rows of 'purl stitches'. I've been promising on my blog to upload this film for ages. Hope its clear, you like it and its not too long.. Comments welcome. Remember, its actually a fast stitch to work and interesting plus it works well round curves. You can see examples of it produced in gold thread at the V&A Museum in London on Elizabethan sweetbags. It was a very popular stitch then. NB Sorry about my little slip of the tongue right at the beginning....lol (you couldn't plan a better Fraudian slip, could you?). Happy stitching !! I'll be posting more embroidery videos - only difficult stitches though... (if you're interested, the other example of hand stitching on my hoop here is 'Trellis' stitch, hope to do a video of that one soon).
For more than four decades, Donna Jo Copeland has raised the raw materials for her fiber art. Today her small farm is home to seven sheep, two angora goats and 30 bunnies, and she can introduce them all by name. Using their fur and wool, as well as fleece from nearby farms, Donna Jo spins, dyes, knits, felts and weaves one-of-a-kind textiles and eclectic yarns. The designs originate from her memories and from the land. Her most recent felted tapestries recreate images of farms, pastures and barns from her past. Donna Jo adds embroidery, beaded ornamentation and quilt stitches for depth. I like for people to look at my work and think thats Donna Jos. Anything handmade should have its own flavor, Donna Jo explains. Each of Donna Jos pieces begins with shearing season. She washes and cards the fibers, all by hand except for her largest blanket projects. She also does her dying, often using natural elements such as grass and flowers. You can get four or five different colors from dandelions, depending on the time of year, Donna Jo says. Farms have their own rhythms and time frames. I honor Mother Nature and her seasons. As a 15th generation farmer, Donna Jo describes her farm as an old-fashioned kind of place. Donna Jo shares the history of her land and her community through her art as well as a series of programs and workshops at the farm, attracting school groups and other artists all year. indianaartisan.org
Unwashed, huddled by candlelight and sewing lavish gowns using only a needle, thread and her own worn fingers, a University of Alberta student has recreated the working conditions of a typical 18th-century seamstress and the fine garments she would have turned out for more fortunate women. "It was long, and hard, sometimes grueling, sometimes painful, and very, very tiring," said Carolyn Dowdell, a master's student in the Department of Human Ecology. "My hands got really sore. The set of stays, those were really tough. It's a really high concentration of sewing, and you're sewing through several layers. The stays are made up of wool satin, and behind that there are two layers of a linen canvass. So, you're making the boning channels through all those three layers. Then the bottom of the stays is bound with leather, and that's sewn through all of those layers. I was using pliers to pull the needle through." Driven by a self-admitted obsession with sewing, Dowdell has spared no detail for her thesis project, authenticating six 300-year-old ensembles and the harsh working conditions of their makers. Even so, producing the complicated outfits in five months would have landed her in hot water during the period she was replicating-between 1750 and 1770. "If I had been a seamstress back then, working at this pace, I would have been fired," Dowdell laughed. "One of these individual ensembles would have been done in about a week, so all these outfits would have been done in about ...
