This technique was used to embellish 1920’s garments for the fashion industry in Paris.

You will learn the basics: how to prepare your fabric on the frame, hook turning directions and you will also be introduced to the chain stitch using polyester & metallic thread and how to use thread colour manipulation to achieve dynamic results within shapes. You will also learn to attach Bugle beads onto fabric.

Tambour is an art form that requires tenacity and patience and will surely deliver a satisfying result.

This project is a sampler only.

Skill Level: Beginners & Enthusiasts
