Beading with Chain Stitch Embroidery

This intensive beginner class teaches how to apply beads and sequins to fabric using chain stitch embroidery. It is our Stage 2 Beginner Tambour Embroidery Intensive Class for learning crochet de Luneville.


The aim of this class is to introduce the student to chain stitch embroidery with beads and sequins. In France this technique is used in haute couture and is known as crochet de Luneville.

Online tutorials that teach tambour embroidery are hard to learn independently because you really do need someone to teach you the most subtle skills that online learning doesn't provide.

Tambour embroidery with beads and sequins demands attention to detail and developing a feel for the movement and tension required to achieve accuracy and  pace. This class will teach you those skills so that you can create embellished embroidery using crochet de Luneville.  

What you will learn:

In this intensive beginner class you will learn:

  • the difference between Indian Aari tambour embroidery and crochet de Luneville;
  • preparing to work with beads and sequins;
  • how to work with (handle) beads and sequins when stitching crochet de Luneville;
  • understanding the art of placing and stitching beads and sequins on a pattern;
  • stitch variations when working with beads and sequins;
  • stitching a basic tambour embroidery pattern with beads and sequins.

The skills learned in this class will enable the student to learn more advanced crochet de Luneville techniques to create three dimensional embellished surface designs.
