Finishing Tapestry Ends

This week I made a video for you all, showing how to finish tapestry ends the way I was taught in textile art school.  I know self deprecation is annoying, so I’ll just squeeze in one wee thing and say that I did this without a tripod, so the angles are not the best.  You should have seen me propping the camera up on towels and slinging it around my neck, all while trying to get all the filming done before Sam woke up from his nap, haha.

So, here it is.  I hope this is helpful to some of you.  Oh, and the music in the sped up part is my partner Danny.

    Very helpful, thanks. I especially like your nice hand stitching at the end rather than a machine zigzag. It seems like it would be much more flexible.
