The pamphlet started as a notebook course and addresses many aspects of planning appropriate borders to enhance a design. The essay covers a variety of counted border classifications and styles, including simple bands, edgings, spacers and mats along with more intricate composite patterns and treatments with corner motifs. It not only discusses the basic concepts for developing counted borders but shares ideas for design sources and innovative stitch sequences as well.Step-by-step sequences for all of the borders shown on the cover page are included in the booklet. All of the borders presented are composite patterns, and many are open arrangements that require unusual sequences that conceal the traveling paths and minimize the number of starting and ending threads.
NOTE: This pamphlet includes 13 pages of color examples that illustrate many of the principles that are discussed in the text. As a result it will only be available through this web site or directly from the author.
