3+4+5) A&S50 - Stitches/Techniques (depth)

(3: Embroidery, 4: Sewing, 5: Needlemade Lace)

3.1) Embroidery - surface couching
embroidery technique - for Fiona’s coronation dress, for the roundels for Anya’s Laurel cloak, for the “gold” embroidery at my blue 12th century dress with gathered body part
3.2) Embroidery - Klosterstich
“self couching technique” - I use it for my wallhanging project
classes: Summer Coronation 2008 (Insulae Draconis)
3.3) Embroidery - Stem Stitch
I use it for the outlines of the Klosterstich areas :)
3.4) Embroidery - Satin Stitch
embroidery technique - for the
roundels for Anya’s Laurel cloak (leaves)
3.5) Embroidery - ‘diapered‘ work
also a kind of couching technique in my opinion - used for the roundels for Anya’s Laurel cloak
3.6) Embroidery - Pearls…
some pearl embroidery for the neckline of the 12th century dress
3.7) Embroidery - chain stitch
...used for my new hood/Gugel with dagging


4.1) Sewing - running stitch
…used for sewing :)
4.2) Sewing - back stitch
I use the back stitch instead of the running stitch for the sewing technique like described in the book “The Development Of Costume” by Naomi Tarrant on page 15 - 3rd row, picture in the middle for my new 12th century dress - I feel much more secure and comfortable with the backstitch than with the running stitch, for the Gambeson
4.3) Sewing - blanket/buttonhole stitch
I sometimes use this stitch for decorative seams,...

5.1) Needlemade Lace - “Glattes geschlungenes Stäbchen”
Abb. 866, p. 604 - see chapter “Nadelspitzen” in the book “Encyklopaedie der weiblichen Handarbeiten von Thérèse de Dillmont” - used for Brooks “A Crafty Challenge” gift
5.2) Needlemade Lace - “Gewöhnlicher Tüllstich - Erster Spitzenstich”
Abb. 890, p. 611 - see chapter “Nadelspitzen” in the book “Encyklopaedie der weiblichen Handarbeiten von Thérèse de Dillmont” - used for Brooks “A Crafty Challenge” gift
