When I started to stitch on my Blackwork Thread Sampler project I wrote this:
“I was going to use the Trebizond for the cover because it’s so shiny and pretty. But I didn’t like working with the silk. Let me be more specific. I did not like working with stranded Trebizond. I will do some more research to find out if there is a way to handle stranding the twisted silk so it will handle more neatly in the stitching.”
Today I was reading Mary Corbet’s newsletter and learned how to handle Trebizond and other filament silks. I thought you might be interested in the info, too. Also, by putting the link here in my blog, I will always be able to find the info when I pull that Trebizond out to make the Trebizond page in the Thread Sampler book!
And how about that! As an old friend used to tell me:
“Bury a rock and save two birds!”
