I finally finished and uploaded all of the knotting shuttle videos.
I’m so sorry it took me so long to get them online. I know there were many of you who were interested in seeing more detail about knotting. I hope these videos are helpful, explaining more about what knotting and knotting shuttles are, as well as how to go about trying it. It’s so fun and easy — go ahead and try it!
I have to admit, I was very nervous to post any videos. I still am very new to embroidery, and only just started using a knotting shuttle. I am definitely not claiming any historical accuracy with any of my techniques or designs. They’re simply something I have started doing just so I can get practice, and have finished projects as quickly as I can. I’m very slow at sewing and embroidery.
I’m also incredibly nervous about the format.
You’ll see that each video has an introduction — all of the knotting videos have the same intro for “Things You Need,” and then the couching video has a slightly different one. I decided to go ahead and keep it for each video, so that all of the information would be handy and someone wouldn’t have to hunt for it.
I tried thinking of the sort of videos that have helped me, and although I may have made them too long or spent too much time on them, I hope they are helpful.
At least I know how to edit videos now.
Or at least, one way to edit videos anyway. It’s been an interesting lesson in learning to make videos. I’m sure I probably did some things the hard way, but I found a format that worked for me. At least for projects like this. I would also like to keep them all similar.
Not sure how often I’ll make or post videos.
It definitely took a long time to get these finished and posted. Part of that was the recent health stuff going on, a sewing project I was scrambling to finish in time, and the fact that my computer apparently doesn’t like working with video afterall. It created a choppy effect that drove me nuts, but I just have to accept that my computer isn’t quite powerful enough to work with video that often.
Videos are in the Image Gallery.
To keep things simple, the videos are linked from the Image Gallery. I decided to keep photos and videos together to make things easier. I will most likely have a link in the side bar directly to the Knotting Shuttle page, but here is the direct link for now.
