Christine Stanton of Christine, by Hand points out that the beautiful suzani embroidery showing up on Etsy has the look of chain stitches but is created with a tambour hook. (The technique Susan Elliott told us about in June.) Christine explains how to tell the difference between embroidered chain stitches and tambour work, she includes a video of a tambour craftsman at work, and she shares links to other interesting resources. Thanks so much, Christine! See her post.

    I had not seen Susan’s post before. It is wonderful! The tambour beading technique is something I would like to try. Thanks for linking my post. =)
