Needle-weaving hems and needle-weaving bands are an inherent part of Schwalm whitework. And the huge number of different possibilities makes this special type of embroidery varied and interesting.
In Schwalm Whitework Lesson #4 – Needle-Weaving Band Sampler, I described how to work the different pattern categories in great detail. I have now collected into a new publication a huge number of band patterns with short explanations. This publication will enable embroiderers to find the perfect pattern for their taste and purpose.
The featured needle-weaving band patterns were found on pieces worked within the last two hundred years – 193 different patterns in all.
To both show the course of larger patterns and also enable a size comparison, all patterns are shown over a section of about seventy-two bundles.
In addition, these patterns are also included:
In each of the categories, the patterns are arranged according to their number of units. To make it easier to find a special pattern, the number of bundles of a single pattern segment is also provided for each pattern. (Of course all the special terms are clarified.)
Some band patterns are easy to read, and others are more confusing. In an attempt to prevent errors from being made and to ease your work, I provide an additional service. For each band pattern, I have included the number of bundles for the individual bridges of the first unit; these are set in parentheses. Additionally, this pattern segment (the counted-out section) is marked with red lines at both ends.
