What is Aari embroidery and Luneville embroidery?
These two embroidery techniques are similar methods of making a chain stitch when embroidering, often incorporating beads and sequins into an embroidery. In both techniques you use a hook, which requires its own action.
When you master one of these techniques, you can more easily embroider designs with beads, sequins or tubes. In addition, they lend themselves to embroidery with different types of thread.
