Tambour Embroidery: And so it begins…


Yesterday, when I arrived home from work, I was thrilled to see that my  small tambour embroidery frame had arrived.

I did not have a chance to set it up last evening, since I was hanging out with my daughter most of the time; however this morning, I made that a priority after the all important things like feeding my daughter, getting ready for work were out of the way.

The above video shows how to make a basic chain stitch. Normally tambour embroidery is done on fabric that you can see through. Actually, I can with the above fabric that I’ve chosen. If it is an issue, I’ll chose a fabric where the holes are more visible.

The good news is that it looks like I’ll be practicing tambour embroidery later today. Yes! I can’t wait.


  1. I’ve never done any embroidering before, but that looks like fun!

    It is enjoyable. A great way for me to unwind. Knitting and embroidery are my “go to craft projects,” when I don’t have time to sew.
