Etudes N°1



The common darning stitch was widely used in the old days for reparing torn or frayed fabrics. This humble stitch however comes in many variations. If you check out Thérèse de Dilmont's extremely instructive Encyplopedia of needlework (published in 1884 and still relevant today), you will see some very sophisticated versions of the stitch such as the satin or twill darning stitch or the damask darning stitch.


Agnès Delage-Calvet, an expert French needlework designer, follows her own fancy in these stylistic compositions based on the darning stitch. Her work covers four "pages", each of them showing 6 decorative motifs stitched in counted long stitch. The beauty of these designs is that all the stitches are counted allowing for the perfect regularity of each motif. At the base of each "page" is a border also including some cross stitch.


Seemingly a bit austere at first, the pattern offer an incredible variety of effects and is indeed quite decorative.


You can stitch the Etude N°1 as a whole on one single piece of fabric. Alternatively, showcase each single page, displaying them side by side either framed or stretched on a padded board.
