Tambour Needle Holder & Needles

Tambour, meaning "drum" in French, is so named because of the hoop around which the fabric is stretched as tight as a drum. The sharply pointed tambour hook then pierces this surface, picks up the thread used, and pulls it back through in a loop, and in so repeating this, makes a chain stitch. Tambour work was a fast way to cover an article of clothing or household object with a decorative embroidered design.
