Friday Homework for Lesson 54: Tramming

Tramming was easy and the result is a nice raised line of stitches.

  2. Interesting. Back in the corners of my mind, I seem to remember learning about tramming as a quick way to mark colors (using just the long horizontal stitch)on a needlepoint canvas before selling it to the customer who would complete the actual stitches.

    1. Yes, that seems to have been popular instead of marking the canvas with paint. I really like the way the stitches get padded by the underlying thread.

  3. Yes, I like the linen fabric too, it naturally sets the stitches off at their best.

  4. The Tramming looks to be a sturdy stitch and has a nice appearance also. I think designs in the stitch would look terrific.

    1. I think that if you first prepared a design with the Tramming stitches on the canvas and then stitched Trimmed Cross Stitch, you would get a very hardwearing and rich result.

  5. Trammed tent stitch is a good, sturdy stitch for useful objects!

    1. It does give the fabric a lot of extra strength.
