I’ve just made a new video tutorial showing how to use a nifty technique to embroider motifs onto small loom weavings.
The technique is tambour crochet, and the motif is one of my most favorites, the heart…
This is the first in a series of video tutorials and free projects that I will be posting in honor of ‘Stitch Red’, which is the Needlearts industry’s campaign for heart disease awareness- working to benefit The Heart Truth through the end of June 2013.
I care deeply about heart health, as my mother and mother in law both had heart problems, and my mom had to have surgery on her heart.
I don’t want any of us to have to go through that …. so I am very committed to helping people have happy healthy hearts!
I used the tambour technique to embroider the heart and greyhound for the memorial piece about the passing of our beloved companion in this blog post Link
In the video, I promised that I would share a heap of links, and so here they are:
