step by step aari embroidery

hi everyone, did you find use of my site?.
thanks for your response.
did you try with chain stitches in different way?. well tommorrow i'll begin with new shape. so be ready.
and one more thing, when you start, better you try with polyester fulvoil cloth which is used for blouse or cotton cloth. 'cos directly doing on shiffon may damage your cloth as well as your confident. so try first with cotten and go further with other cloth once you are confident with your chains.
like wise use cotton[ordinary stitching thread] instead of silk for first 2 days. then try with silk, and later with golden, silver zari threads.
be patient and don't hurry burry. do slowly,leaving enough time and thread for each chain.

I came across your post on aari a few months ago. It was very useful and I used the instructions to mount the material on a frame and tried a few stitches as well... I would to know a few more types of stitches as well...

admhi, i have learnt aari stitches from an institute. They taught me 4-5 stitches like chain, sequencing with chamki and beads. I'e also done few on my blouses and my kids dresses. Would like to know if there are many more.If so, where can i learn as my passion is stitching and embroidiery besides learning music.

hi again,,
I learnt aari from a workshop where they taught me only 5-6 stitches whih i've used in dresses. I am right now stitching a saree border with only the chain stitch. would like to improve my work. Kindly help.

thanks again for showing couple of more stitches. VVery useful. Wish one day i could also do such wonderful work as yours. One more thing i would like to know is whether the needle differs with the type of fabric we work on.

Your work on light pink is the best of all for me.
thanks again
