I have done two more bands: the first is a bit modified versions of pixxie's band, the second is an element from Zeb's band (since it was too big) repeated.

I am planning to continue with some of Smiley's, and I have drawn some bands again, will be using these, too:

I too have been wondering about using a 4 sided stitch to hem aida. Thank you.

Here's mine so far. I must also get around to putting up graphs of what I have used. Working on it

Spurred on by Agi finishing hers, I have now finished mine.
Not finally decided what to do with it. Thought about a needleroll but I haven't left enough fabric at the top. So I think I might get some wooden bellpull ends and hang it up.

Ta DA!

So a few weeks ago I was bored at work so started mucking around with a design for my band sampler. Since then it has had many alterations (bands added, bands started then discarded...) but over Easter I finished it!

Stitched on 28ct sparkly evenweave over 2 using Gumnut Yarns, Madeira and Cifonda Silks (Mabel will be proud!) and a 4mm silk ribbon for the roses (colours chosen as I went along :shock: ):

In whole:

Top and bottom halves:

Sections of my favourite bands - I really love how these sections turned out (theres a second sampler now designed using these again... :) )

(Note: Some of the bands have been inspired by designs of Blackwork Journey and Seba Designs)

Cleaned up the thread removed all of the old posts that the images had been removed from.

I had not looked here for quite some time it was fun to look at the samplers again.

Thank you Rose. I don't remember every looking through this thread or it was so long ago, I had forgotten. Now that I an stitching the Twisted Band Sampler I am much more interested in Samplers than I had been. And Serinde is making one of Hardanger Stitches which made me think that I wanted to do something with all those International Stitches I have bee collecting for almost two years from the Papillon ATW SAL. I don't really love the design (just not my type of thing), but a Band Sampler definitely makes sense to me. Now to figure it out??? :thinks: :thinks: :thinks:
