The Infamous Flamestitch

Just Another Infamous Flamestitch

When in a jam finding a pattern with all the right colors that you are working with, you will always be able to find the infamous FLAMESTITCH. ( with just the right colors)

And in a small dose, even I, who really dislikes it, can tolerate it.

And in the end, when everything is all pulled together it actually looks great.

It can really be a LIFE SAVER.

I speak from experience and a few bald spots that I have from pulling my hair out over a few jobs/projects/clients/rooms/bad dye lots/poor installatiions , yadda ,yadda , yadda name it, but we can stop there.

Just give it a chance, you will be pleased.

This works beautifully with contemporary.

This one is pretty darn sharp, but it is not a typical FLAMESTITCH.

Yuck-O, .......this is a typical flamestitch.

  1. I really like the black and white zig-zag.

  2. I am a huge fan of the flamestitch.
    We're designing an ottoman covered in a great Quadrille flame stitch. So much fun.


  3. I too love flamestich. It can be completely modern or traditional depending on the setting and or colour way. And, it is usually indestructible.

  4. Search for the right fabric is definitely a lot of work! You've gotten togeter a nice collection.

    BTW... I am feeling better...numbness went away... the unbearable headache was the WORST part to tell you the truth.

    Good luck with your fabric!



Thanks for participating!!

Just imagine how it would be if each of us,

If only for a few hours of everyday,We could be in a space that is our very own.A place that is exactly the way we want it to be

Surrounded by all the things we wanted to see,

The atmosphere we wanted feel, smell and the sound we wanted to listen to.
