Where to buy:
At Lacis.com: Tools&Materials/Needlework/Techniques/Embroidery/Tambour Work
- Tambour Needle set $22
DO NOT get the Clover version, Latch Hook, or Tambour Hook.
Other options: There are many vendors selling tambour needles on Etsy. Just get the “Luneville” or French type with the screw that secures the needle in place. You can use the narrower Indian “Aari” type needles, but I find them trickier to use so I wouldn’t recommend them for beginners. Size 70 or 80 should be fine.
At Lacis.com: Tools&Materials/Needlework Techniques/Embroidery/Frames
I recommend the Professional Tambour/Embroidery Frame $28, with or without $8 risers. There is also a $48 version with risers.
Adjustable Stretcher Bar frame may work, haven’t tried it. Would recommend getting it with the twill tape attached.
You can also make your own frame with 4 wooden boards, ½” to ¾” thick and approx. 2” wide, plus C-clamps to secure the corners. If you’re going with this option, you can:
- staple 2-3” wide twill tape to the bars with heavy-duty staples, and then baste your fabric to that
- wrap narrower twill tape around the bars and sew it to your fabric
- baste twill tape to your fabric edges and then sew to the frame using heavy cord
- People often use a combination of the above (two sides stapled, two sides sewn or wrapped)
Other frame options: Square quilting frames or regular hoops can work in a pinch for learning, but it’s hard to get tension tight enough for good tambour work. But if you’re short on cash and already have one of these frames, you’ll be fine.
Keep in mind that you will need both hands free, so you’ll either need risers or some other kind of stand, or your frame will need to be large enough to balance in the gap between 2 tables.
Optional but very useful:
– Wooden spool holder, or some other device that allows spool to turn freely: https://www.etsy.com/ca/listing/712426245/tambourluneville-spool-thread-holder
Other materials needed:
- Thread: Standard polyester sewing thread.
- Beads or Sequins: Must be pre-strung. I will have some – strung beads & sequins if you can’t find any.
- Silk Organza (or other very stable sheer fabric, but silk organza is best), piece large enough to fit your frame.
- Mechanical Pencil and a simple design you’d like to try embroidering
