Anita of artisticfingers has put together a series of tutorials on Aari embroidery, also known as tambour work. If you’d like to know more about this technique, which uses a tiny hook to pull loops of thread to the fabric’s surface, go to Anita’s blog and click the link to Aari embroidery in the navigation bar in the right-hand column.

Many thanks to Ina of Let’s Learn Embroidery for pointing out Anita’s series.
