The tambour book you have has all the correct information in it, personally I learned more about doing it from getting a really good look at the stuff from the fifties and sixties and trying to get the same kind of mixture, and mixing techniques and things.
I have found the nicest ones on the www.brodely.com site, they’re not the cheapest but the most diverse and excellent quality. The needles are called tambour hooks, lacis sell them and the basic holder. The frames are hard to find in any kind of decent size for dressmaking purposes but they’re called slate frames, I have someone make mine for me and it’s not expensive, any carpenter can make one for you easily. Feel free to stay in touch if you need any more info :))
Hey there, did I reply to this? Sorry I am not so good with this thing!
They’re so fascinatingly beeeeaaaaaautiful….!
Oh cool! Is that the one where you work the sequins from the right side?
Oh gosh crochet is much harder than anything you do with embroidery, and mixing mediums is always the most interesting way to embellish things! You’re very kind thanks, hope to see soon what you come up with :)
If you need any help with materials or stuff just let me know, and would be cool to hear from another person who does it :))
