My goal here is that you gain at least one or two things that help you with questions you have about finishing berries and/or stitching on silk gauze. It will never be the same as me or anyone else sitting with you and coaching you through, but these will certainly provide you with a great start.
A page with basic templates I use for berry top treatments is available for download here.
- An Overview
- Preparing Silk Gauze for Stitching
- Getting Started on Silk Gauze
- The Continental Stitch
- The Basketweave Stitch
Details with basic stitch diagrams and instructions for mounting the silk gauze are available for download here - or refer to the tutorials presented at the links listed above.
In the fall of 2020, it became apparent that a reliable source for silk gauze was increasingly hard to find. Therefore, Petites Collection chartpaks no longer include a cut of silk gauze; please contact your favorite retailer to order silk gauze separately.
